About me

Hi I am Rosanna, I am passionate about art, different cultures, human and animal rights.  I feel blessed and honoured of working with brave, insightful and sensible individuals and to be part of their healing journey.

My aim is to support people on achieving their potential. Contact me if you have lost the direction, if labels don’t fit you, if you’re curious but tired..

 Accredited: HCPC PYL 35504, EAGT (European Association of Gestalt Therapist), EPC (European Certificate of Psychotherapy)

Languages: Italian, English.

Works with: Individuals, couples, families.

Specialism: Autism Spectrum Condition, ADHD, Trauma, Anxiety and Depression, LGBT, life crisis, self exploration.

I am a trained Gestalt Practitioner and I am also a EMDR Therapist. I am a registered Clinical Psychologist in Italy and UK.

I obtained my doctoral degree in clinical psychology in 1998 at the “Sapienza University” in Rome and my specialisation in Gestalt therapy in 2010 at the Gestalt Institute Hcc Italy. I am an accredited EAGT therapist. I have more than 20 years of experience offering Psychological Therapy (Gestalt and EMDR). I used to offer cognitive and neurodevelopmental assessments in the National Adult Mental Health Service in Italy (DSM, Asl.8. And since 2017 I have been working in Children and Adolescents Mental Health Service (CAMHS swlstg) in London.

Terapia individuale, di coppia e familiare, uso EMDR in caso di esperienze traumatiche o specifoche ansie e fobie.
Ho una formazione professionale di tipo esperenziale-umanistico, neuropsicologico e diagnostico.

Lavoro nel qui ed ora del momento presente, sperimento la relazione duale terapeutica come lo strumento di cura, sostegno, riconoscimento della propria unicità. Tramite l’esperienza della relazione terapeutica è possibile ripercorrere la storia personale, familiare e culturale che lega il presente al passato e dà forma al proprio futuro, rendendo comprensibile il ‘sintomo’, il ‘disagio’.

Obiettivo principale della terapia è il sostegno dell’awareness, alla scoperta di una vita qualitativamente ‘migliore’, dove il concetto di ‘migliore’ è assolutamente personale e va costruito, appunto, attraverso un percorso di integrazione di sè, di riconnessione col proprio sentire e di restituzione di una dignità d'essere agli aspetti più spontanei e genuini dell’individuo.

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.
