About me and my therapy practice

I have successfully helped many clients deal with anxiety-related issues (panic attacks, OCD, PTSD, body image dissatisfaction), depression and relationship problems. 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. 

My services include short-term and long-term therapy as well as sessions in Italian. The approach I use comes the discoveries of CBT on how moods and thoughts are linked, the Gestalt ideas that that deepening awareness, developing compassionate self-acceptance and the full expression of feelings lead to long-lasting change. 

I use Motivational Interviewing to assess readiness to change and offer support to overcome feelings of being stuck or without direction. I am an Accredited 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. 

Feel free to email or phone me with no obligation. I offer therapy in two locations located in Shoreditch High Street (E1 6PJ) and Old Street (EC1V 9DX).
