Difficult situations and painful feelings are a reality for many of us. Sometimes we may not be able to makes sense of it all and feel unclear on how to move forward. Those situations may be overwhelming.
We may fall in a destructive patterns of behaviour, stuck in a rut, and this will hold us back. The support we have around us might not feel enough, as it is difficult to open up without feeling judged or misunderstood, it may feel frightening. In this case professional counselling/therapy may be a way forward for you. This may offer a much needed fresh prospective, helping you to explore underlying issues that interfere with what you think, feel and do. Counselling can help individuals living with a wide range of difficulties, including:
-childhood and adult trauma
-loss and bereavement
-relationship and sexuality
-illness, pain and disability
Over the years, I have gained extensive experience in working with culturally diverse clients, including: expats, refugees and asylum seekers, university students, young adults, survivors of abuse, people who suffer from PTSD and post traumatic stress.
This means taking into consideration the religion, gender-based dynamics and beliefs of the client, while offering counselling and psychotherapy services. In my professional and personal experience I found that talking to someone who is trained to hear your concerns can be very helpful.
I offer counselling and therapy in English and Italian, short-term and long term.
