I am an Italian psychologist who lives here in London and deeply knows the profound meaning of moving to a new country and starting a new life. With my professional and personal experience, I turn to the Italians here in London who feel the need for help to deal with life issues. Being able to do it in your native language makes us feel more protected and understood, while I help you working on your unexpressed potential and internal resources, to achieve your WellBeing and improve your quality of life.

 

My approach

I apply the Gestalt psychological methodology, which consists of a holistic and mindfulness approach to the person with a focus on the "here and now", so with a priority to the present dimension over the past in clinical investigation and therapy and to the interaction between the individual and the environment with the guiding idea of a creative therapeutic relationship that respects the uniqueness of every human being.

I also apply the EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Once we have identified the trauma together, I proceed to prepare the person for the EMDR treatment, apply it and then once the block is removed, healing resumes. In this way I help the person to activate their natural healing processes.

I am a Chartered Psychologist, Gestalt Psychotherapist and EMDR Therapist.

I have more than 20 years experience working in my private practice and with Italian hospitals, working on the empowerment of personal resources and dealing with major psychological disorders: anxiety disorders, mood disorders, eating behaviour disorders, obesity and bariatric support, couple problems, relational and family difficulties, sense of insecurity and inadequacy, problems of self-esteem. As specialist in eating disorders I apply Psychobiotic, the science of the gut-brain connection.

  • Post-graduate training in Gestalt Psychotherapy at the CSGT (Centro Studi Terapia della Gestalt), Milan (Italy)

I​talian psychodynamic psychotherapist specialized in therapies for children, adolescents and families, enrolled in two professional registers, the British Psychoanalytical Council (BPC) and the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists (TSP). In the last decade I have dedicated my life to the study and practice of psychodynamic psychotherapy, with a particular interest and competence in working with children, adolescents and families.

My approach is to offer customers a space for reflection and mutual respect in which to explore unresolved issues together. I offer a real curiosity and an open mind to welcome every individual and his difficulties. Every person, of any age, has a story to tell.

My job and my passion are to highlight these stories, helping you to unravel mental states that can be difficult. Each person is unique and there is no valid approach for everyone.

With children, play is an essential part of psychotherapy and with adolescents alternative methods such as the use of images can help them express their feelings.

More traditional approaches, such as dedicating an entire session to speaking, can often be effective for parents who have moments of family difficulty. In any case I make sure that all the participants, individually or in groups, are treated with equal respect, understanding and attention. After the initial evaluation, I can suggest how we can work together for a tailored therapeutic intervention.
