ARE YOU STUCK?
Falling into the same pattern (despite how hard you try not to) is frustrating and might leave you feel like all you do is getting by.
THERE IS ALWAYS A WAY FORWARD.
Sometimes all you need is an external point of view and making time for yourself.
I offer a confidential space dedicated to you and you only, to talk freely without being judged.
Exploring what led you to where you are now is part of what we will do, but our priority will remain moving towards where you want to be, one step at the time.
WE CAN CHANGE THE GAME TOGETHER.

MY STORY, INSPIRATIONS AND APPROACH:
I believe our past experiences inform the way we act now, but also that we always hold the power to decide what will come next. Sometimes we just know what to do, sometimes we need an external point of view to help us see what the next step will be.
Here is how a shift in perspective shaped my practice and my life:
I was born and raised in Milan, Italy.
My career choice was heavily determined by classical education and the fascination for a question as old as time: “How do we find meaning in our existence?”.
After graduating in Psychology from Milano Bicocca University, I realised a change in mindset and environment was needed to gain clarity on what to do next.
In 2012, I left Italy and moved to London to continue my training.
The impact with a different culture shed light and challenged old ways of being. Before I knew it, learning a new language became more than just a practical obstacle: it was the emotional journey of making sense of me - the woman and the practitioner - far from a familiar and predictable place.
Throughout the years, I qualified as a Therapeutic Counsellor at City and Islington College in London while being part of adult support services across the city, working with bereavement, addiction and PTSD.
Alongside this, I have also assisted students in both mainstream and alternative provisions in managing anxiety, anger, attachment trauma, behavioural issues, ADD and ADHD.
I currently support adults and adolescents in my private practice and I deliver psycho education workshops as a member of The Self Space team.
