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.
