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?

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.

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
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 is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
