Welcome to my Private Practice
My name is Michela, I provide treatments for a number of psychological difficulties. My model of psychotherapy is integrative, humanistic and existential. It means that I will use different approaches from different therapeutic models to suit your needs best. I am a specialist in:
Counselling, Psychosexual and Relationship therapy, also known as couples counselling and sex therapy.
My two main professional trainings are both essentially connected in enabling me to work with the human totality of the individuals and couples that come into my clinic room, whether they come with specifically psychosexual and relationship issues, or other psychological concern.
I have a strong interest in diversity and identity. I strongly value the idea that sexual health is a right that should be protected. Sexuality is such a huge part of the human identity. People should have a right to a healthy identity in all aspects of their life…. sex included.
I love studying human behaviour. I learned about all of the different schools of thought on therapeutic techniques, I saw value in them all. I could see how the Humanistic approach would help some and CBT others. Many people might benefit from a Psychodynamic approach whilst others would be more Existential or Analytic.
I knew that there is no “one size fits all” when it comes to seek therapy interventions.
My approach is person centred because each person and couple are unique.
I am registered counsellor and psychotherapist and have previously worked for Relate and NHS as a psychosexual and relationship therapist for a number of years.
My practice is only for adult clients, all gender identities and sexualities.
