About me and my therapy practice
There are times when we may struggle to cope or sense our life is stuck and feel powerless to change it.
Taking the first steps towards finding the support and help you need is a courageous and important act, so please know that whatever issues bring you here, you will be heard.
Counselling can help you to explore your inner world, make significant changes to your life and find your true self.
My name is Federica. I offer a safe and confidential environment where, by way of open, non-judgemental exploration, one’s true self can be found. I believe that it is by working together and developing a trusting relationship that change becomes possible.
Being heard can help make sense of, and bring meaning to, the thoughts and feelings you may be experiencing as troubling
or confusing. The process of therapy can reduce distress, whilst increasing self-awareness, thereby creating potential for lasting change in your life.
The way I work is based on a Psychodynamic approach to Psychotherapy. This addresses the specific symptoms and difficulties that bring people into therapy whilst also encouraging increased self-awareness and understanding of their origins.
This can help gain control over unconscious, unhelpful patterns of behaviour in our present and live a fuller, truer life.
I offer once weekly 50-minute sessions in my own therapy room in Basingstoke town centre to individuals aged 18 and over. The work is open ended which means it is not a pre-determined set of sessions, but that the ending will be discussed together. I can also provide online sessions via Zoom during the ongoing pandemic.
Languages spoken : English, Italian, French
My first sessionI offer a free 30-minute initial consultation via telephone or Zoom, in which we will discuss your needs and think about what would best suit you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
