About me and my therapy practice

I am a dedicated Psychotherapist and Psychologist with a Master in Psychology Degree and Post-Graduate Diploma of Speciality in Psychotherapy and with over 15 years of significant and progressive experience in the adult mental health sector.

In 2004 I achieved my masters degree in Clinical and Community Psychology at the University of Palermo, Italy. The length of the course was 5 years. In 2010 I completed my studies of specialisation in Individual and Group Psychotherapy at the COIRAG headquarters in Palermo, following a further 4 years of study. In 2021 I obtained the Certificate in Clinical Supervision, level 6, at The Manchester Institute For Psychotherapy. I have over 15 years experience in the clinical field and have worked in various public and private contexts, as well as volunteering, both in Italy and in the United Kingdom. This allows me to relate to different situations, backgrounds and a wide range of psychological problems. I work using the Psychodynamic approach with individuals, couples and groups.

I am attentive to the climate crisis and the effects this has on our mental health. I promote a way of living that is as ethical and ecological as possible. In each session there will always be space to talk about how the environmental situation and climate change is affecting our "internal world". We will also understand what we can do individually and you will be surprised how much power you have with your actions.

Practice description

I provide therapy sessions both online and in person for individuals, couples and groups. Where possible I like to keep sessions at the same time and day each week, however alternative arrangements can be made tailored to your needs.

Online sessions are available in case it's not possible for you to attend a session in person, perhaps due to the current COVID-19 situation, logistical reasons, work commitments or physical issues. The online sessions are conducted exclusively via the VSee platform (a secure video communication service) and the software is free to download and use. Each session lasts for 50 minutes and costs £36.50. Payment is required a minimum of 1 hour before the session is due to start and is made via PayPal (you do not require a PayPal account in order to make a payment).

Face-to-face sessions are conducted at my studio, located in Sale, Trafford. Each session lasts for 50 minutes and costs £47.00, which can be paid via card or contactless mobile payment. At the end of each session you can receive a receipt for your payment. From the second session onwards payment is required in advance. Please visit my website for information regarding my COVID-19 policy.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a dedicated Psychotherapist and Psychologist with a Master in Psychology Degree and a Post-Graduate Diploma in Psychotherapy specialising in Group Analysis, following a combined 9 years of study in Italy. I obtained the Certificate in Clinical Supervision, level 6, at The Manchester Institute For Psychotherapy.


I have over 15 years of significant and progressive experience in the adult mental health sector, working in various public and private contexts, both in Italy and in the United Kingdom. This allows me to relate to different situations, backgrounds and a wide range of psychological problems.

My primary approach is Psychodynamic, however I am also knowledgable of other approaches such as CBT, TA and Person centred following my experience working with colleagues in various organisations.

Practice description

I offer supervision to trainee and qualified counsellors and psychotherapists following the Seven-Eyed Model of Supervision (Hawkins and Shohet 2007) joined with the Integrated Development Model (IDM) (Stoltenberg et al.). Individual sessions are available both in person and on-line and group sessions in person only. Prices are as follows:

  • Individual: £50 (1 hour session), £75 (1.5 hour session)
  • Group: £50 (1.5 - 2 hour session dependent on number, maximum of 4)

In every session we will discuss casework and professional issues keeping always in mind the welfare of the client and the growth of the supervisee. We will assess and facilitate strategies to meet the learning needs of the supervisee. All of this will happen in a supportive, collaborative and respectful relationship.

My first session

I offer 30 minutes free of charge (on-line only), for an initial consultation to understand if I am the right supervisor for you and we can work together. If you would like to proceed we will go through the contract during the first session, answering any further questions you may have.
