ABOUT

I’m a certified counsellor in Perth specialising in Life Transition Counselling and

Adolescent and Young Adult Therapy. I offer guidance and support to people who

are going through difficult life changes or feeling overwhelmed by their day-to-day lives.

I’ve been through many life transitions. Some were chosen,

others I had no other alternative but to get through the best I could.

​One of the most recent life transitions was moving from Italy to Australia.

Although it wasn’t my first time moving to another country, it still felt scary at times.

There was a lot of uncertainty about the future. How would I find a job? How would my son cope with the change? Would we be okay financially? The anxiety and loneliness were overwhelming at times.

 

I thought maybe counselling would be a way to deal with my emotions.

I was right. It was in counselling that I learnt how to practice self-compassion.

I became more aware of my thoughts and feelings, and how to navigate through challenging situations.

As time passed, I felt more comfortable when difficulties arose. I reacted to events in a more balanced way.

My mood improved and I felt I was finally thriving, rather than just surviving.

Learning how to overcome challenges changed the way I viewed life.

And knowing how hard life changes impacted people, I decided to embark on my next transition.

The time had come for another change. I returned to study to become a counsellor to help others.

I’ve always been interested in people and how we can live our lives more constructively.

Studying counselling allowed me to dive deeper into these subjects

and learn how little adjustments can make a huge difference.

Now I do what I love most. I support people through challenging times

and work with them to develop new ways of coping.

I hope I can support you too!

 
 
ARE WE A GOOD FIT?

I understand not every counsellor will be right for you. Everyone is different and has different needs.

It might help you to know that I listen in a warm and non-judgemental way.

I create a safe space for you to share your experience, whatever that might be, at your own pace.

 

We might be a good fit if… 

  • You need to unravel thoughts and feelings.

  • You want to work with someone with diverse life experiences

  • You feel too anxious for a face-to-face session and prefer counselling online

  • You enjoy spending time in nature and would rather talk outside

  • You have a tight schedule and would like to talk after-hours

  • You speak Italian or German and would like a counsellor who speaks these languages and understands these cultures

  • You want to talk to someone who has experienced challenging situations

  • You’re a parent and would like to speak to someone who understands the highs and lows of parenting.

 

Does this sound like you? I offer a free 30-minute video call so you can see if we’re a good fit.

 

Feel free to contact me if you want to know more.
