About me and my therapy practice

Hi, my name is Marina, and I am a Gestalt counsellor (MBACP).

I am originally from Rome where I have trained and qualified as a psychologist and psychotherapist.

I have experience of delivering counselling in a variety of counselling services, including the NHS, where I am currently volunteering.

I am interested in the dialogical (verbal and non-verbal) encounter between you and I and I am curious about how we relate one another and how this relationship can support your personal discovery and growth.

I believe that there are times when we really need a dedicated space to be held and listened to, that can facilitate the expression of our needs and desires hence the mobilisation of our resources to move on and beyond. 

Practice description

My approach is Gestalt therapy, trauma informed and diversity empowering. I value and respect differences and I am interested in people’s creative adjustments to their life situations.

I encourage creativity, ‘response-ability’ and body-mind wholeness.

I see clients in person and online and if you want to know more, get in touch with me or visit my website

I abide by the BACP code of ethics and I am committed to my continuous professional development, including ongoing supervision.

My first session

The first appointment is an opportunity to get a sense of each other, talk about what brings you to therapy and your expectations.

If you wish to commit to 50 minutes weekly sessions, we can then look at a time frame and contract for a certain amount of sessions with an approximate idea of what you would like to ‘take-away’ from this experience.

If you have any questions or you want to book an initial appointment, get in touch with me via the contact form or through my website.
