About me

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.

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.

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 room is in Clapham (SW12) and I offer long and short-term counselling & psychotherapy, face to face and online and 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 counsellor and psychotherapist, I work with the body as well as with the mind, with a relational focus (how you relate to yourself, others and the wider environment). I do not attempt to analyse you or make interpretations, my aim is to support you to gain greater awareness of yourself.

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 vast experience working with people experiencing mental health difficulties, struggling with anxiety, depression, relationship and life crises. I also work as a psychotherapist for the NHS.

I am a registered member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy).

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.

Further information

"La terapia è un viaggio alla scoperta di sè. Non è un viaggio rapido, nè facile e neanche privo di 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.

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: 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 Clapham (SW12) e a Gloucester Road, Kensington (SW7).

Le sedute hanno cadenza settimanale ed hanno una durata di 50 minuti.
