About me and my therapy practice

Hi, my name is Carlo and I am a counsellor and psychotherapist working in East London (Bethnal Green) and online via Zoom. I am an integrative therapist which means I integrate the three main schools of psychotherapy:

- Person-centred (working with the core values of empathy, authenticity and being non-judgemental).

- Psychodynamic (examining the unconscious and how the past affects the present).

- CBT (developing understanding of the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviour) in order to best suit my clients’ needs.

I believe that everybody is different and will find different techniques helpful - so I like to work collaboratively and find what works for you. If you've had a previous experience of therapy that hasn't been best suited to you, please let me know and we can work together to find a style that is a good fit, and can help you make the changes you want to see.

I work with a variety of issues in therapy such as anxiety, depression, relationships, life changing events or transitionary periods. I have specific clinical expertise in working with people newly diagnosed with HIV and welcome clients from the wider LGBT+ communities.

I have an M.Sc. degree in therapeutic counselling and am a registered member of the BACP. 

Practice description

I work from a beautiful and quiet therapy room in East London (Bethnal Green, E2) or online via Zoom. I offer a complimentary online consultation (free of charge) which is a non-judgemental opportunity for you to decide if we are a good fit for working together. There is no obligation to continue therapy following this initial consultation.

My fees are £50 for online working and £65 for face to face work. Sessions are 50 minutes long and are weekly, at the same time and day each week. I have a small number of reduced fee slots reserved for those on a low income or for counselling/psychotherapy students and a waiting list should there be none available at the time of your enquiry. Please send me a message if you would like to enquire about these. I try to respond to all enquiries made during the working week within 24 hours (please check your junk/spam folders for an email from carlo@eastlondonandcitytherapy.com).

My first session

Our first session together is usually slightly different from regular sessions. It's an opportunity for us to get to know each other and I may have more questions than usual in order to best understand how I can offer you support that is tailored to you as an individual.

Similarly, you may have some questions for me about the way I work and what to expect going forward. Please don't hesitate to ask whatever you want to - this space is for you to explore and reflect and I will do my best to be transparent, and to offer you a safe and supportive space in which to do so.
