Having lived in several countries, allowed me to attend different trainings and obtain multiple qualifications that provides me the possibility to integrate and combine skills, languages and approaches.
I grew up in Italy, where Psychotherapy is regarded as a specialization for Doctors and Clinical Psychologists. Therefore, in order to become a psychotherapist, you need to complete 5 years of Medicine or Clinical Psychology + 5 years of specialization in Psychotherapy.
I have completed my studies in Clinical Psychology in Italy (University of Milan and Turin) and the required 18 months of practice between Italy and Portugal.
I then moved to London, where I started working in the National Health System and for a charity called Mind.
Soon after moving, I started my 5-year training in Transactional Analysis Psychotherapy and I opened up my private practice in East London.
I recently moved to Salzburg, where I obtained the qualification as Lebens- und Sozialberatin (Life and Social Counsellor).
I have studied and worked in the mental health field for 12 years, providing psychological support to adults in different settings, from hospital wards, to rehabilitation centres to private practice.
I currently work both in private practice and at The School of Life, a company that offers psychotherapy internationally.
I provide both short and long term work for individuals, couples and groups.
I adhere to the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) of Ethics and am a member of this organisation.
I am committed to my personal development as a practitioner: I attend regular clinical supervision to support my work.
