My intention is to create a space in which you feel comfortable talking openly about your experience, without fear of judgement. I believe that once we gain a better understanding of our experience and what motivates us, we can make new choices, rather than being driven by old patterns of behaviour, which may no longer be useful.
I am interested in how we relate to each other and what makes us connect as human beings. I therefore work relationally, taking notice of what happens between us as this will reveal something of your relationships with others. My approach is predominantly talking based but I always incorporate the body as a way of accessing deeply held emotions.
I work in an open-ended or short-term way.
I have a Post Graduate diploma in Integrative Counselling from the Minster Centre (affiliated with Middlesex University), where I am completing my MA in Integrative Psychotherapy (July 2019). I am a registered member of the BACP (reg. no. 367096). I abide by their ethical framework, which includes regular supervision of my work and a commitment to ongoing professional development.
I have been a volunteer counsellor at Spiral Low Cost Therapy Service in Islington since December 2015.
I am dual nationality English/Italian (mother-tongue English) and can work in both languages.
