About me

I am currently see people face to face and online, please feel free to contact me for more information.

I am a Counselling Psychologist HCPC and BACP Registered. I work with a humanistic approach (Gestalt). This means I focus my work on the client’s individual experience and on the sense that it has for him.

I consider therapy as a creative process between the client and the therapist. A creative process that starts from a stuck point in life due to a symptom, a feeling of loss, a fear or a transition from one life stage into the next one. The aim is to work together to find a more functional way to live life.

For me therapy is not about “to cure something wrong inside us” but an opportunity to transform our dysfunctional way to live. This transformation process is possible developping our awareness and taking responsibility on our needs and desires, with the goal to create a good quality of life.

I support people focusing on unresolved past patterns, present issues and future potential. I will enable the best conditions for your own exploration through genuine empathy and creative interventions.

I can offer counselling therapy in two different languages, Including English and Italian (mother tongue).

My counselling practice is based just off Shoreditch High street station and 5 minu walking from Liverpool Street Station. I can work with clients and groups, from Monday to Friday from 7am to 10 pm.

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.


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.


Health and Care Professions Council

The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.

They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.

Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
