I work with individuals, couples and families that need to face a trauma, a loss, problems of anxiety, depression, fears or relational problems (such as couple conflict, emotional or behavioral problem in a child , alimentary disorder, relational closure in an adolescent). Working together will help everyone finding new energy to change and when everyone is involved in a transformation, it will be stronger and lasting. As an Italian psychotherapist I work in Italian and in English with the foreign community in UK. Sharing the experience of migration always helps to face a new life in a different country.

I have also worked with families and children aged 10-18 yrs.
I am a warm, friendly person and a good listener. I have a very empathic understanding and vast experiences from my own personal life. This has shaped me to be the person I am today. Things from our childhoods and certain traumas, can have us acting out behaviours that can be damaging to us. I have experience working with relationship breakdowns, alcohol addiction, depression, anxiety and self harm. I have worked with adolescents and adults of all disabilities. I've worked a great deal with confidence building and low self-esteem. I can help you recognise these behaviours and what triggers them.

My clients appreciate my holistic approach to mental health. Their goal is usually to find their authentic selves, to become more self aware and to thrive and find joy and purpose, not just survive and settle for a life that is not working for them. I offer therapy to everyone because we all want to be seen, heard and understood and that is often at the very heart of Healing.

Are you feeling a little lost in life, wondering why life feels so hard, facing a big decision and unsure of which way to go? You may have faced a lifetime of feeling less-than or not good enough, and would love to experience a better view of yourself but don't know how or if it's even possible. Would you like to start claiming your worth? Do you know how unique and special you are? Maybe anxiety is dominating your every move, or you've experienced a great loss or change? Would you like to someone to show empathy, to really listen to your experience and help you feel completely accepted, in a non-judgmental, confidential setting?

I have many years of experience working with children and young people.
One of the most important elements of counselling is confidentiality. You may be going through a difficult time, experiencing stress, going through life changes, feeling vulnerable or just need to share your most private thoughts and feelings. I would like to assure you that you can do this in a safe and trustful place. Your personal details or any information you share will stay only in the counselling room. To make your counselling experience a positive one, I assure you that I will provide a trusting and non judgemental environment. I am currently offering Counselling via Telephone and Video (zoom).

When was the last time someone gave you permission to just play? I am passionate about exploring difficult feelings and emotions through the use of the art medium in a creative and trusting environment. Working with adults, young people and children , I go with the pace of the client and encourage the use of playing with the art materials to explore a range of issues a person may be experiencing in their life. I work with people so they may explore themselves on a deeper level to overcome challenges, whether those are problems in relationships, anxiety, depression, loss and bereavement or fears and worries about the future.
