About me and my therapy practice

I am an Italian and English speaking Psychotherapist and HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist.

I have more than 10 years of experience with people struggling with various difficult life situations or suffering from different kinds of mental health issues (anxiety, depression, personality disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, etc.).

I have sound expertise in the treatment of eating disorders, especially binge-eating disorder, gained in Italy through a long collaboration with diabetologists and nutritionists.

In the last few years, I have taken a keen interest in generalized anxiety disorder and in the psychological management of chronic pain. In the treatment of these conditions, I have developed a personal psychotherapy protocol which makes use of psycho-educational interventions, mindfulness-based activities and individual psychotherapy.

As an Italian-born expat, I especially enjoy working with Italians looking for a psychotherapist with whom they can speak in their native language and share a common cultural background.

I offer short-term as well as long-term counselling and psychotherapy both in English and in Italian, considering that I am an Italian native speaker. Even though short-term counselling is my favourite way to work with clients, it might not be the right approach for everyone. For this reason, the number of sessions will be agreed together with the client, depending on client's needs and goals.

I consider myself a respectful, open-minded and non-judgmental practitioner, But above all, I am a human being who has maintained, throughout the years, an intact curiosity and interest towards life and its various, unpredictable manifestations.
