Training, qualifications & experience
I have been working as a mental health professional for 15 years both in the health public sector and in private practice.
After my M.Sc. in Clinical Psychology at the University of Padua (Italy), I joined the University research team as a research fellow and lecturer on family group's dynamics, early relationships, clinical intervention models, treatment outcome in developmental psychopathology and the psychosis in general and developmental psychopathology. I also joined the clinical team of the Department of Developmental Psychology and Socialisation, applying my understanding of early development and family dynamics in assessments and treatments with children, adolescents and families. I also have been consultant clinical psychologist and psychotherapist in an Infant Therapy Centre for 9 years.
In the same period, I was working in adult psychiatric services in the Italian NHS, both for inpatients and for outpatients, offering individual and group analytic psychotherapy.
I am trainer and supervisor at the COIRAG Institute of Psychotherapy of Padua (Italy) and I work as a group analytic psychotherapist in an NHS service in London as well as in private practice.

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 Psychoanalytic Council
The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) is a professional association, representing the profession of psychoanalytic psychotherapy.
The organisation is itself made up of fourteen member organisations and BPC accredits the trainings of its member organisations. An individual who qualifies from one of these trainings is then eligible for entry into the BPC's register.
BPC registrants are governed by a code of ethics, a policy of continuing professional development, a statement on confidentiality and a complaints procedure. The BPC is a Member Society of the European Federation for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in the Public Sector (EFPP). 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.
Accredited register membership
