    MSc, Psychotherapist and counsellor

    I am a psychotherapist currently working at the University of Bristol Student Counselling Service.

    At the moment I'm not seeing clients privately.

    I was born in Torino, Italy where I started my studies in History. I was fascinated by the ancient world and studied Ancient and Medieval History, Latin and Philosophy. I also completed a year abroad at the University of Burgundy 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, mainly with children and young people, between London and Bristol.
    In the last few years I've been working at the University of Bristol where I support the students with their wellbeing.

    I'm interested in research, yoga and gardening.
