About me

I am UKCP registered Psychotherapist and Managing Partner at Kensington Therapy, a private practice specialised in Counselling, Psychotherapy, Life Coaching and well-being services. We are located in Kensington and Chelsea, a short walk from High Street Kensington and Earl's Court Tube Stations. I volunteer at Women and Health in Camden, through iCope and co-facilitate several Hearing Voices and Special Beliefs groups.

In addition, I am a Visiting Lecturer at Regent's University where I teach Existential/Phenomenological Approaches to Therapy within their Psychotherapy and Counselling MA Programme.

My approach to therapy is existential-phenomenological, but my training is integrative and I draw on psychodynamic and person-centred models of therapy as well as CBT whenever I feel they may be helpful to my clients.

I am bilingual and practice in English and Italian.

For more information, please email me here or phone/text +44(0)7760994969.

Training, qualifications & experience

I gained my MA in Psychotherapy at Regent’s University’s School of Psychotherapy & Counselling Psychology in London where I wrote a dissertation on the experience of regret as a catalyst for change. I have an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy and existential philosophy tends to influence the way I look at the world.
