About Me

I’m a bilingual and bicultural psychotherapist, with expertise in supporting expats, international students and adults struggling with their mental health. I’m based in Milan, and work in private practice, and lived for many years in the UK, where I worked across various sectors including wellbeing support in universities, psychotherapy provision in the National Health Service (NHS), and mental health community support in non-profit organisations.

I trained at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust in London, and I’m a registered member of the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and of the Italian Association of Counseling (AssoCounseling). I currently provide clinical supervision to international doctoral students in psychotherapy at the University of Exeter, UK.

How I work

I offer a safe and confidential space to explore the emotional, psychological and relational issues that you may find recurring in your life and that you’re finding difficult to manage.

My work aims at increasing your own self reflective capabilities and giving you better insight into the issues you are experiencing, and how to make change.

I’m experienced working with a broad range of difficulties such as:

  • relationship issues
  • cross-cultural issues
  • cultural adjustment
  • academic and work pressure
  • life transitions, including transition to adulthood
  • anxiety, low mood and depression
  • low self-esteem and lack of motivation
  • loss and grief
  • trauma including developmental trauma and its manifestations / implications in later life

Areas Of Expertise


Many people decide to move to Italy to work, study or retire. While the expatriate lifestyle promises new and exciting cultural experiences and personal development, it also presents its own set of challenges and can be very disorientating. I’m experienced in working with expats to increase their confidence in navigating change and cultural differences, alongside any other issue you may present with.


Navigating LGBTQIA+ identities involves unique challenges that can impact on mental health. Professional support can improve resilience and personal growth. As a queer therapist, I specialise in understanding and addressing diverse relationship dynamics, providing an open-minded space for exploration.

International students

Studying abroad for the first time as a young person can be extremely rewarding and eye-opening. However, many students find themselves unprepared for some of the challenges they encounter, and need further time and space to adjust and to feel more in control. I’m experienced in supporting students in this context, and will help you to feel more equipped to make the most of your time in Italy.

Outdoor Therapy

Some people find a sitting-down therapy setting to be overwhelming and a barrier to being able to seek out support. In specific circumstances, I can provide outdoor therapy sessions in green spaces.


I can provide clinical supervision to therapists, clinical psychologists or mental health professionals, in individual and group contexts.
