I am a Clinical Psychologist and Gestalt Psychotherapist fully trained in Italy, my country of origin. I have been living and working in the UK between 2011 and 2020. Prior to my moving to England, I have been working as Clinical Psychologist for over three years in various settings, particularly with older adults. My passion and ambition made me become a Gestalt Psychotherapist and restart a career in the UK, where I found the occupation I always wanted. Soon after getting my diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy I started working at the Manchester Gestalt Centre in private practice. I then became a member of the centre, started running workshops and collaborating at events/projects.

In the meantime, I also obtained the equivalence of my title of Clinical Psychologist and registered with the HCPC. I have been working for five years in the NHS, predominantly with older adults and people with dementia at Oldham Memory Service, Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust.

I recently moved back to Italy, where I work privately as Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist, and I continue to collaborate remotely with the MGC and other British Gestalt organisations.

I work mostly with individuals and couples from various cultural backgrounds. I have successfully worked with people presenting anxiety disorders, panic disorder, depression, relational difficulties, low self-esteem, emotional difficulties, history of trauma and attachment issues. I am also interested in expanding the Gestalt psychotherapy theory particularly in relation to the process of ageing, therefore my projects/events are mainly focused on this topic.
