The purpose of this website is to offer a collection of thoughts and reflections, mainly about psychotherapy. Writing and sharing my thoughts helps me to feel more grounded as a practitioner. I hope others can also benefit from reading about my journey as a therapist.
I am a psychotherapist, currently working as Deputy Head of Student Counselling at the University of Bristol.
I was born in Torino, in Northern Italy, where I started my studies in History with a year abroad at the Université de Bourgogne in Dijon, France. After my studies, I worked in youth organisations in Luxembourg, promoting inclusion for disadvantaged children and young people.
I moved to the UK to start my training as a psychotherapist. I initially volunteered as a counsellor in London, before starting to work at the University of Bristol.
I'm interested in yoga, languages, research and gardening.
Main academic studies
I believe my training is never finished so I'm always curious and keen to learn more.
