I am a certified clinical and community psychologist with additional diplomas in person-centred/Gestalt counselling and the treatment of food-related disorders. I provide psychological support and counselling for adolescents, adults, and couples dealing with stress, anxiety, depression and low mood, low self-esteem, problems with school and work, relationship difficiiculties, food-related problems, bereavements and other life-changing events. The person-centred approach is based on full acceptance of, and warm regard for human diversity, and on the belief that every individiual possesses the resources for identifying and applying personalised solutions to difficult life situations.
Born and raised in Ireland, I worked and studied in Germany for 13 years and have lived in Italy since 1998. I have counselled numerous expatriates and visiting students. Having also worked as a translator for many years, I am very sensitive to both subtle and significant cross-cultural differences.
