As a qualified Psychologist in Italy in 2004, I trained for four years to become a Cognitive Constructivist Psychotherapist. After moving to the UK, I became accredited as a BABCP CBT Therapist and also trained in EMDR.
I am honored to be affiliated with the Integrated Science Association (ISA) and the Universal Scientific Education and Research Network (USERN). My research focus is on embodied, embedded, enacted, and extended cognition, and their relation to trauma, emotions, and consciousness, with a particular interest in phenomenology.
My therapeutic approach is influenced by Carl Rogers and his collaborators, as well as Krishnamurti’s intellectual sharpness. With ten years of experience working with an NHS Trust, I have provided CBT to adults with a wide range of emotional, cognitive, behavioural, and adjustment problems, including anxiety, stress, depression, and relationship issues. As part of my NHS therapeutic work, I have provided guidance to over 50 clinicians on suicide risk screening, assessments, and treatments. I also collaborate with trauma clinics to treat PTSD and childhood trauma.
As a BABCP accredited supervisor, I enjoy supporting clinicians in their personal and professional development and reflective practice.
I practice mindfulness daily and advocate for kindness in the workplace and in society. I am happily married and blessed to be the father of lovely twin girls. I am a proud geek who enjoys binge-reading, playing football, and practicing the ancient meditative martial art of Muay Thai.
