the whole of you
I am a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor (PG Dip), MBACP registered, BSc (Hons) Psychology, Yoga teacher for children, with a wide range of clinical experience from both the public and private sectors.
I offer a range of services covering
anxiety, anger management, pain management, depression, trauma, menopause-related issues, sexuality, intimacy and relationship issues
Reflective and mentoring practice for professionals working in busy, demanding clinical or organisational settings, for those who choose to deepen their body/mind connection.
I am French-Italian and I have lived over half of my life in UK. I am multilingual, culturally aware and welcome clients from any cultural/sexual background and abilities. I am a 5Rythm dancer, a yogini, and practice meditation.
I have a wide range of clinical experience from both the public and private sectors with a background of over 12 years in the field of personal development, and 6 years in applied psychology. I have worked as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor across a range of private and public sector (NHS). This includes counselling hospital staff, amputees and patients with neuro-psychological disorders.
I offer a reflective and mentoring practice for professionals working in busy and demanding clinical and organisational settings for those who choose to deepen their body mind connection.
I offer both short and ongoing psychotherapy for clients depending on their needs. I have experience working with people from all sort of walks of life, facing a variety of different issues, such as; anxiety, anger management, depression, pain management trauma, menopausal related issues, sexuality, intimacy and relationship issues.
I believe that the body and mind can be integrated, for both components are part of a whole, intrinsically linked together. Diligently, throughout our lives our body registers, consciously or not, what the mind experiences. As such, the body experience is an integral part of the clinical work I practice with my clients. I am interested how becoming more present to our whole being and learning to live emotions healthily. Together we work at integrating mind and body. This leads us to being able to cope differently with the existential givens of life, anxiety, love, death, ambivalence, disappointment, acknowledging our shadow side.
My work is informed by Existentialist Humanistic theory and principles, Zen therapy, Focusing, Body psychotherapy, and psycho-physiology of trauma.
On a final note, I believe finding your therapist is like finding "that" pair of shoes - it needs to "fit". The relationship you have together is pretty unique. Together we explore and delve into hidden parts of yourself you may not even be aware of. So, it is primordial for you to feel safe and connected with your therapist. Trust yourself - you will know when you find the right one for you. Do not feel discouraged or put off if the first one you saw was not quite right for you. Persevere - after all a journey of a thousand miles starts with a single step (Lao Tzu).
face to face
short or long term
I am compassionate and suitably challenging. I aim to work collaboratively at your pace, with whatever arises during our sessions together.
My imperative is to establish a safe, supportive and accepting connection so that the therapeutic relationship present between us can flourish. With it we explore your unique lived experience, how you make meaning of your world, your life.
Together we make a way towards whatever it is that will be different/new for you. We explore how to increase awareness to the area that is being worked on to obtain the balance desired.
I offer a reflective and mentoring practice for professionals working in busy and demanding clinical and organisational settings, who choose to deepen their body/mind connection.
