Psychologist, Psychotherapist and Bioenergetic Psychotherapist

MBACP (Registered), SIAB (Therapist and Supervisor) IIBA, SIMP Member, Ordine Psicologi Veneto No: 5610

I am a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist trained and accredited both in Italy and in the UK. With over 30 years experience, I offer counselling and therapy in Italian, English and French to adolescents, adults, and couples.

I am a Registered MBACP Psychologist and Psychotherapist and I adhere to their Code of Ethics,  offering my clients the highest standard of professional care at all times.

Sometimes life presents us with challenging issues and we need somebody who listens with empathy, somebody we can trust, who is able to support us, and who can guide you to discover the person you are. Throughout my practice, I completed several different specializations in order to achieve a better client–therapist healing relationship. I apply combinations of the below theoretical models to achieve an integrative approach to my work:

  • Bioenergetic Psychotherapy
  • Psychosomatic Therapy
  • Gestalt Therapy
  • Hypnosis
  • Rewind technique for PTSD

I specialize in assisting people with a wide range of problems including:

• Abuse • Anxiety and Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) • Depression • Panic Disorder • Substance Dependence • Abortion and Post-Partum Depression • Bereavement and Loss • Anger Management • Body Image • Phobias • Domestic Violence • Transcultural issues • Behavioural and emotional issues • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) • Eating Disorder • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) • Stress • Self-esteem • Work Related issues • Relationship problems • Couple counselling • Psychosomatic diseases

I offer a free initial consultation to allow you determine if you feel we can work together.

Upon request, sessions may be held remotely.

Member organisations

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Key details

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
