About me and my therapy practice

I have successfully helped many clients deal with anxiety-related issues (panic attacks, OCD, PTSD, body image dissatisfaction, social anxiety, etc. ), addictions, anger, depression, sexuality and gender issues. Through therapy, my clients take back control of their life and improve both mental and physical wellbeing by understanding what causes psychological problems in the present and how they developed in the past. 


The approach I use integrates the discoveries of cutting-edge schools of psychotherapy

- discoveries of CBT on how moods and thoughts are linked
- the idea shared by Mindfulness, and Internal Family Systems (IFS) that awareness and acceptance of what happens inside of us is key to healing
- the improvement of our relationships with others and of our life choices is key to our wellbeing as stated by Gestalt therapy and Nonviolent Communication
- the fact that change only happens when we are ready as Motivational Interviewing teaches us


Areas of specialism

Anxiety (and related issues like PTSD, stress, chronic worry), Anger and Stress, Addictions, Sexual and gender diversity.

I am an Accredited UKCP Psychotherapist for individuals and groups, and a Registered Counsellor educated at Masters' level. My background is in education and I regularly publish articles on anxiety, anger and relationships. 

My services include short-term and long-term therapy as well as sessions in Italian for individuals and couples. For people based outside of London or who cannot come to my office, I offer on-line consultations over Skype and/or Zoom.
