About me

I provide a warm, confidential and non-judgmental space where together we can explore the reasons that have led you here and increase your awareness.

I believe in the healing power of love and self-compassion. Through a holistic approach I aim to create a safe and supportive space for you to explore some of the barriers that stand in the way of a more fulfilling life.

My approach is tailored to meet your specific needs. I believe it is important to look at your current problems or long-term difficulties in the context of your whole life. My focus is not only on what is expressed in words but also on what the body says.

Effective therapy requires a trusting, mutual relationship where honest and respectful dialogue can take place.

My consulting rooms are in Clapham/Balham (SW12) and I offer long and short-term counselling both in English and in Italian.

What are the sessions about?

The first session is an initial assessment to explore the issues you would like to work on, and possible ways of addressing them in therapy. You can tell me about yourself and learn a bit more about the way I work to see if you will be comfortable in therapy with me.

Sessions last 50 minutes and are scheduled at a regular time weekly. I have regular reviews to establish how the therapy is going for you, and whether it matches your expectations.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Gestalt trained counsellor. Gestalt psychotherapy and counselling works with the body as well as with the mind and emphasizes how we relate to ourselves, others and the wider environment.

I believe that people have the necessary abilities to face their difficulties. However, when something interrupts this process, often during childhood, we get stuck in some fixed patterns of behaviour and beliefs about ourselves. As a Gestalt therapist, through the exploration of past events and how they are experienced in the present, I aim to raise awareness on how these patterns are still affecting your present life.

I have experience working in the NHS with a broad client base presenting with varied emotional difficulties ranging from anxiety, depression, panic attacks, to low self-esteem, shame, guilt and obsessive behaviour.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy), and I adhere to their code of ethics.

Further information

"La terapia è un viaggio alla scoperta di sè. Non è un viaggio rapido, nè facile e neanche privo di paure...ma la ricompensa è il sentimento che la vita non sia passata invano."(A.Lowen)

Sono una counsellor formata nel Regno Unito presso il Gestalt Centre e registrata presso l’associazione professionale Britannica BACP.

Considero di fondamentale importanza la creazione di un contatto emotivo con i miei clienti e di un approccio terapeutico autentico.  Il mio obbiettivo e’ quello di offrire un ambiente sicuro per consentire una profonda esplorazione dei propri pensieri, emozioni e vissuti ed esplorare liberamente e autenticamente i propri sentimenti.

Credo nell’unicita’ di ciascuno di noi, pertanto le sedute sono personalizzate in base alle singole esigenze.

Il mio approccio terapeutico (Gestalt) abbraccia l'intera esperienza di vita di una persona: fisica, psicologica, intellettuale, emotiva, relazionale e spirituale.

Negli ultimi due anni ho lavorato presso il Servizio Sanitario Nazionale (NHS) con pazienti affetti da diverse difficolta’, tra cui stress, ansia, depressione, rabbia, bassa autostima, pensieri ossessivi e compulsioni, solitudine e problemi nelle relazioni interpersonali.

Se desideri uno spazio dove poter affrontare i tuoi problemi, contattami e fisseremo una seduta iniziale. Insieme poi decideremo il percorso da intraprendere.

Ricevo privatamente a Balham e a Clapham (SW12). Le sedute hanno cadenza settimanale ed hanno una durata di 50 minuti.
