The purpose of this website is to offer a collection of thoughts and reflections, mainly about therapy. Writing and sharing my thoughts helps me to feel more grounded as a practitioner. I hope other people can also benefit from reading about my journey as a therapist.
I am a psychotherapist, currently working at the University of Bristol Student Counselling Service.
At the moment I don't seeing clients privately.
I was born in Torino, in Northern Italy, where I started my studies in History. I also completed a year abroad at the Université de Bourgogne in Dijon, France. After my studies, I worked in youth organisations promoting inclusion for disadvantaged children and young people in Luxembourg.
When I moved to the UK, I started my training to become a counsellor first, and then a psychotherapist. I worked for different organisations and charities, mainly with children and young people, between London and Bristol.
In the last few years I've been working at the University of Bristol supporting the students with their wellbeing and self-development.
I'm also interested in yoga, languages, research and gardening.
Main academic studies
I believe my training is never completed and I'm always curious to learn more.
