About me and my therapy practice
Therapy offers a safe, confidential and non-judgmental space to talk through and explore the hardships which can face any person at any time in their life.
Having the support and insight of a therapist enables people to explore their own stories, assists in prioritising what really matters, unblocks creativity flow and provides with tools to turn crisis into opportunities.
My training is integrative. It has its roots in humanistic psychology which adopts an holistic view of human existence, paying specific attention to creativity, free will, positive human potential and it encourages self-exploration and self-awareness. There are links with transpersonal psychology, focusing on spiritual self-development, mystical experience and dreamwork. It is also connected to psychodynamic psychotherapy which emphasises how early childhood experiences prototypes our future relationships with others. I also have received training in CBT and brief solution focused therapy.
Both my personal and professional backgrounds are ‘multicultural’. I trained as a Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist and have a background in art and in languages.
Since 2000 I have worked in a variety of environments such as the health service, education, non-profit organisations in Italy and the UK. Currently, I combine my private practice in NW6 and W9 with counselling in multicultural therapy settings.
I work in English, Russian and Italian. I am particularly sensitive to issues such as identity, diversity, social acceptance, belonging, life transitions, bereavement and loss, anxiety and depression, isolation and cultural adjustment, low self-esteem and relationship problems.
Beyond techniques, tools and theoretical approaches, I believe that in every one of us there exists the potential for self-healing and the capacity to for recovery. I firmly believe that my mission is to help people achieve this end.
Currently I work remotely, prevalently through VSee and Zoom video platforms and over phone.
When safe - at Minister Centre (London NW6 6RD).
