About me

“I've always regarded therapy more as a calling than a profession, a way of life for people who care about others.”
Irvin D. Yalom

I was born in 1973 in Italy, among the hills of the Monferrato region.

After graduating in Occupational and Organizational Psychology at the University of Turin, I worked in Italy in the area of human resources, where I dealt with coaching, vocational training and corporate reorganization interventions (including recruitment and selection of personnel).

Although I loved my work, I had the feeling that working in the corporate world was not enough. I felt like freeing myself from the constraints and rules of that world, in order to help people express their full potential not only in professional terms.

I then chose to study different therapeutic approaches and specialize in counselling and clinical psychology. Although I enjoyed exploring different forms of therapy, I consider psychosynthesis to be my reference model.

Beyond psychosynthesis, I also trained in CBT cognitive-behavioral therapy, person-centred therapy, solution-focused brief therapy and mindfulness-based counselling.

For more than ten years I have been working with individuals and couples in a clinical setting.

Futhermore, since 2002, I have been cooperating with Need You ONLUS, an Italian non-profit organization supporting children in many different Countries. Among their activities, I offer training against bullying and cyber-bullying to students, teachers and family in various schools in Italy.

I consider myself a respectful, open-minded and non-judgmental practitioner and a human being who has maintained, throughout the years, curiosity and interest towards life and its various manifestations.

I am a HCPC registered Counselling Psychologist, a Chartered Psychologist and a Psychotherapist registered both with UKCP and BACP. I am also licensed as a Psychologist in Italy and a member of the Register of Italian Psychologists.
