About me and my therapy practice
I am a counsellor and psychotherapist. In addition to my private practice, I currently work for the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, treating clients suffering from anxiety and depression.
I spent the first part of my professional career working in high-pressure corporate environments in both Europe and North America. Prior to that, I lived with my family in Italy, Switzerland and the United States.
These diverse experiences enabled me to develop a keen sense of observation for the varied manifestations of human behaviour, a sensitivity for its less visible facets and an appreciation for the impact that life's events, both past and present, can have on our sense of self and our relationships with others.
Psychotherapy entails more than just listening. Daniel Stern states ‘..in and of itself, verbally understanding, explaining, or narrating something is not sufficient to bring about change..’. There has to be an inter-subjectively lived experience, with affect and actions occurring in the here and now - this is the micro-world of the present moment. Each present moment captures a subject’s style, personality, preoccupations, conflicts.
In psychotherapy, we value the sequence of present moments that occur between therapist and client as these offer an opportunity to explore the implicit assumptions that govern relations with ourselves and others. It is in the supportive context of a mutual exploration of our affective world that we can forge novel pathways to improve the quality of our lives.
