About me

Do you struggle in relationships? Do you feel you have the love you want? Do you want to manage your life in a different way? Do you feel there is something holding you back?
I think you have arrived at this website because something is not going in the way you want to in your life. You may need to speak with somebody about the difficulties you are experiencing and find a way to help and support yourself. Maybe I can help?
As a qualified and experienced counsellor and psychologist, my job is to help you in exploring and understanding why you are experiencing these feelings, thoughts and or situations and to find new ways of being and relating that better fit with your life.
I offer a warm, confidential and non-judgemental space in North London. I work closely with my clients to understand their needs and together decide upon the goals and outcomes of therapy.
I conduct therapy sessions in English, Italian and Spanish. Lavoro in inglese, italiano e spagnolo. Trabajo en ingles, italiano y espanol.
I offer counselling for adults, adolescents, children and couples.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP)

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


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.
