My style of therapy is collaborative, creative and empowering. The way I look at problems, difficulties or concerns is relational as it acknowledges the importance of relationships in our lives, how key significant people in our family of origin or carers shape our current and future relationships. This is why this approach is also called systemic, considering how human systems function and can change toward a more positive future.
I am an Italian national. I obtained a first class social science and psychology degree at University of Brighton in 2002. I then undertook the four year training in systemic and family psychotherapy which I completed in 2008. I am also a qualified systemic supervisor since 2012. I have gained a dual expertise in Social Care and Systemic and Family psychotherapy . I worked in a Looked After Children Team for 2 years and in a Child Protection agency for 8 years. I now work as an independent psychotherapist, specialising in post adoption support (for East Sussex County Council and a national adoption agency) and in private practice. I have been a lecturer and tutor in the Advanced Certificate in Systemic Practice for 5 years, currently teaching on the foundation course in Brighton for the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust. I am a systemic supervisor and trainer
I have a special interest in intercultural couple and family therapy and ecotherapy
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
