Therapy for harmony

and balance

Hello I'm Umberto,

I am a psychotherapist dedicated to helping people achieve their personal growth and aspirations. If you're considering therapy, take the first step by booking a free, confidential 10-minute telephone consultation with me.

During our call, we'll discuss your needs and goals to determine if we're a good match. You can reach me directly through this website or via email at

Together, we'll work towards creating a personalised approach that fits your unique needs. Let's connect and see if I can provide you with the warmth and support you need to achieve personal growth and reach your desired outcomes.

Talking helps…. Where should we begin? Could you benefit from a non-judgemental place to think it through?

As a fully accredited BABCP CBT Psychotherapist and Supervisor, a fully qualified EMDR Psychotherapist, and a Cognitive Constructivist Psychotherapist, I have extensive experience in treating clients with a spectrum of complex issues under regular supervision.

I have also undergone therapy myself, which has given me a unique perspective on the transformative power of therapy. As someone who values clarity, I strive to create a safe and transparent space for my clients to explore their thoughts and emotions. That's why I've created a brief video introduction about my practice, which will give you an idea of what to expect when working with me.

Okay, I want to start by telling you about my approach.

I am committed to providing individuals with the necessary tools to navigate their struggles, and I strive to bring a unique perspective to each person's therapy journey.

To explain this, I have written a little story and made a short as a representation of my tailored and personalised approach. I hope this story brings some clarity, and that you can join me on this transformative journey today.

About my CBT specialisms:

I have had the privilege of helping many individuals with diverse issues using CBT therapy. These may include, but are not limited to:










Social anxiety

Health issues

Relationship issues

Furthermore, I have effectively reversed Type 2 Diabetes in myself and am presently recovering from Tinnitus (yes, it can be cured, not just managed through habituation or distraction!). Additionally, I have led workshops on Sleep issues and also provide one-on-one consultations and continuous support for these ailments.

Trauma can lead to a range of challenges, including attachment issues, difficult emotions, disturbing thoughts, and compulsive behaviours.

To help people overcome these issues, I take a unique approach that combines CBT with Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing (EMDR). My approach involves addressing core beliefs, blind spots, and memories, as well as unconscious factors that may be preventing you from healing.

Can EMDR be used for other issues besides trauma?

The short answer is yes. EMDR therapy can assist in addressing irrational or excessive fears of specific things.

EMDR Therapy can help you:

Enhance inner harmony and peace

Enhance tranquillity in your body and mind

Resolve stuckness

Reduce suffering

So what can EMDR be used for?

Complex PTSD/ Complex Trauma


Panic Attacks


Social Anxiety


Somatic Disorders and Pain

Medically Unexplained Symptoms
