I work as an art therapist with children, teenagers and adults in educational settings and in mental health services, using art to support individuals to express their feelings and thoughts. Art Therapy is a form of psychotherapy that uses the medium of art to enable people of all ages to access feelings and thoughts that may be difficult to be expressed with words. I adopt a person-centred approach in which I value the uniqueness of each individual and their abilities, in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental space. I speak English and Italian.
The first contact is via email, a phone call can be subsequently arranged to discuss and arrange your first appointment.
My therapeutic approach aims also to support the development and strenghtening of self-agency and self-empowerment. I believe that each individual has the right and the opportunity to make choices at all times and find meaning through them, according with their personality, wishes and value system, in a way that can impact positively their life journey.
