I am originally from Italy and have lived and worked in UK since 1994. My initial training was in Humanistic Integrated Counselling and I have been a Chartered Counselling Psychologist with the British Psychological Society (BPS).
I am also trained in Clinical Supervision and more recently in Embodied Relational Therapy (ERT) and am now an accredited Psychotherapist with the European Association for Body Psychotherapy (EABP).
I have worked in Mental Health and Primary Care since 1996, in independent practice since 1997 and for a time in Smoking Cessation Services (particularly with young people).
I have experience of tutoring on University Counselling Training courses and worked for University Student Counselling Services.
My interest and experiences in holistic and embodied approaches to health and personal growth and in music are reflected both in my life and in my work. I am open to the many creative, embodied ways in which we express, know ourselves and grow. I have a passion for accompanying others in their search for themselves and their path. I believe in our self-healing capabillities and in offering the space to contact those abilities and to operate change at whatever level possible.
Part of my work is to facilitate rhythm circles based on drumming and dancing for a variety of groups and communities and workshops aimed to encourage and support a more creative, resilient and embodied way of being, communicating, expressing ourselves, living our lives and building community.
I now live in Calderdale, West Yorkshire, where I indulge in my love of walks, music, good food and good friends. I also continue to develop my musical passion by writing music and performing in different settings and with others.
