About me and my therapy practice

I worked with Mental Heath, Psychotherapy and Supervision for the past 20 years (first abroad, then in the past few years, in the UK). I worked as a volunteer, on the private sector, and as a private practitioner

My background is in psychology and, in particular, psychotherapy. I have trained as a Clinical Psychologist and Psychoanalytical Psychotherapist and I use psychodynamic theory to guide my work, although I am familiar with a variety of different modalities and therapeutic approaches. After I concluded my undergraduate degree, I underwent two separate 3-year training programmes, the first aimed at adult psychoanalytical practice, while the second had a specific focus on psychotherapy for children and young people. 

I have worked with a variety of people from all age groups with different   background   and   beliefs.

As a psychotherapist I had direct contact with dozens of clients over the past two decades and my duties as a BPS Chartered Psychologist include providing supervision as well as assisting supervisees with their academic needs.

About me and my therapy practice

I am a psychologist and have worked with counseling, psychotherapy, and supervision for the past 20 years (initially abroad, then in the UK). I have worked as a volunteer, on the private sector, and also as a private practitioner.

In relation to counseling and supervision, I have always been keenly aware of the legal and ethical boundaries and standards within the profession. I understand the diverse roles across a range of settings and services and I am trained to recognize the appropriate boundaries and dynamics of the relevant relationships. I have worked with a variety of people from all age groups with different background and beliefs. My familiarity with different theoretical models, approaches and interventions underpinned my capacity to be empathic and enabled me to practice in a confidential and effective manner even in difficult situations.

I am a supervisor registered with the British Psychological Society - RAPPS.

Unfortunately none of the places I work provides wheelchair access.
