I have been curious about human behaviour since my adolescence. It came quite naturally to me to study psychology and I obtained a degree with honours in Italy. After work experience with young people and adults, I decided to further develop my knowledge and skills and completed a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology at University College London (UCL).
As a clinical psychologist, I am trained to deliver evidence based therapy, drawing from a range of therapeutic models. Evidence based means that there is scientific evidence, provided by extensive and rigorous studies, for the effectiveness of the therapies I deliver.
I have training and experience in the following therapeutic approaches: cognitive behavioural (CBT), psychodynamic, systemic and solution focused therapy. I tend to mainly work from a CBT perspective, however I integrate approaches and techniques to best meet the client’s needs and maximise the effectiveness of the intervention.
My priority is to offer a safe and confidential space where the client and I can explore his or her difficulties and find a way forward. Professional and committed, I also value being authentic in the session and my approach is friendly and down to earth.
