PSYCHOTHERAPY & COUNSELLING
Often a crisis or major life event starts us thinking about therapy or counselling. We may feel overwhelmed or “not ourselves”. We may want to learn more about ourselves, gain greater clarity on our thoughts and feelings, improve the quality of our lives and relationships, or just have someone to talk to and tell our story.
Therapy gives us the time and space – in a safe, supportive and confidential environment – to reflect on what works for us in our lives and recognise changes we might like to make. It gives us greater awareness of our emotions and our behaviours, and with this awareness, we can feel more in control of our lives and begin to make more informed choices.
I am an Integrative psychotherapist and counsellor, working in North West London. I have a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling and a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from the
Minster Centre (affiliated with Middlesex University). 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.
HOW I WORK
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.
Sessions are weekly for 50 minutes and depending on your needs, we can work in an open-ended or short-term way.
I charge £60 per session, initial consultation is £35.
