About me and my therapy practice

Hello, my name is Raffaella, but everyone calls me Raffa.

I am a BACP Registered Counsellor. Having worked for many years as a scientist focusing on studying cancer cells, I decided to move onto the wards and clinics to work with patients directly. As I started to listen to patients on the ward and in clinics, I realised that drugs, treatments and scans are vital, but it is also important that patients feel heard and they have a safe space to explore their thoughts and feelings as well as to be able to talk openly about their concerns and what really matters to them.

Having worked for now over 5 years in the NHS for Cancer patients in various London hospitals, means that I am very experienced working with people or their loved ones, who have a serious illness, including those with terminal illness or affected by trauma, bereavement, drug addiction, anxieties and low self-esteem.

I believe it is hard for anyone in these days to find oneself – to honestly be what we want to be in the midst of all the conflicts and confusions of the outside world. The inner truth for each person involves a conscious connection to a deeper sense of self, and I will provide you with a safe and unjudgmental space to help you reach this connection. You can express your worries and uncomfortable or difficult thoughts with me, so to let them run out of your system and so feel more at ease in yourself


Practice description

Life challenges us with constant changes and often our nature is to resist to change as we can easily feel overwhelmed and only able to live one week or one day at a time, and sometimes one breath at a time. Everyone feels pain, and struggles are important and need to be heard. We can’t get through our worries by diminishing or ignoring them, but only by accepting them and figuring out what to do with them. You might discover by talking to me that letting the worries become more real in your life will allow yourself to live more in peace, whatever that may look like to you.
