Approach to Therapy & How I Work

I work from a humanistic and systemic perspective, which means I believe in treating a person as a whole, in his/her life environment, rather than just addressing symptoms.
Additionally, I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalised tailored approach to each client.
I also deliver Skype sessions all over Europe and I have some clients oversea.

I notice that Skype sessions are beneficial not only when people cannot reach my private studios because they live faraway or in another city and country. Indeed, on line therapy seems to help some patients to feel at their ease whether they need to express sadness, anger and tears.

Someone claims it is actually easier to open up and express themselves when they are in their own comfort zone, such as their house, room, garden or even their workplace.

Although, I personally believe, Skype therapy is a strong and functional tool, I manage to meet my patients who live in Europe every four months in order to enrich the quality of our relationship and the work we are doing together.
