About

After having taught for 7 years at the Faculty of Psychology of an Italian private University, I moved to Northern Ireland where I founded Athena Mental Health which I now direct as the CEO. I am a Fellow of the National Council of Psychotherapists (UK) where I served as Ethics Committee Member and currently offer Clinical Supervision. During the COVID19 pandemic I moved my business online accessing the global market where I currently work treating adults, couples and families from any country in the world. I was trained to provide therapy in English to speakers of other languages.
I specialized in neurodivergence and personality disorders. My approach is both conservative towards the identity of a person and integrative in relation to the modalities I choose for the treatment. I believe that each one of us is unique and different, so therapy must be tailored on the specific needs of every new client seeking help.
I offer two innovative psychological treatments: virtual reality exposure therapy and cranial electrotherapy stimulation. My practice requires full registration; after your initial assessment, my assistant will guide and assist you throughout your journey. - BY APPOINTMENT ONLY: MONDAY TO SATURDAY 1PM TO 9PM (UK TIME).
