Motivation. Trust. Dedication.
I work with preteens, teenagers, couples and individual adults. I believe in generative
coaching and NLP relational counseling which are designed to assist the client in
meeting their goals very effectively. I want to be helpful from the first session and
will help clients set goals for our work together. I prefer to work my way out of a
client’s life instead of a long term approach. “I Have The Power To Change My
Life!” is what Smart Counseling is all about.
I draw from my experience and tailor my approach to each client’s individual needs
and goals. I handle sessions providing attentive and caring counseling and coaching. I act in
partnership with clients by empowering them to make decisions in their best interests.
I understand that some life changes and challenges are complicated and multifaceted.
I help clients navigate the changing landscape of these dynamics. I explain to them
the work I do in a clear and understandable manner and they can make choices that
make sense for them, enriching their lives both now and in the future.
I understand the need to give back to the community and include pro bono and sliding
fee representation as part of my work.
I am a professional licenced counselor who has a private studio in the Lugano area.
I am an Italian native, formerly expat in the UK and now resident in Switzerland.
I have a college diploma in Human Studies and a degree in Business Studies from Brighton University. I received a Master in NLP and Counseling in Switzerland.
For a long time I have been following and studying psychological research that is constantly evolving thanks to countless discoveries. We are learning many new theories about what it is to be a person, to have a human brain and nervous system.
Lately we have become more attuned to the notion of mind and body, how they are connected and how each affects the other. I rely on that growing reservoir of knowledge and expand my experience and training through international generative coaching courses (I’m member of the IAGC) and recently in coaching of the Creative Mind with the finest trainers in the world.
Prior to developing my practice, I was a staff member of the SOS Children and Adolescent help line unit in Lugano, Switzerland. I also worked for US multinationals and in the medical industry.
My current practice is named Smart Counseling for a reason. Instead of traditional talk, I want to support clients in finding practical solutions to their problems.
My clients have been positively surprised by the results they have obtained: ‘I finally grounded and found my roots’, ‘I closed a door and opened a bigger one ‘, ‘I feel really calm and confident now’, ‘I am so happy for the results and everything looks in the right perspective’, ‘My team meeting was great after working with you’, ‘ Everything went well in my interview,’ ‘That fear is history’ and much other wonderful feedback.
I help professionals, artists, students, athletes, business owners, coaches, teenagers, families, couples, retired clients in dealing with different types of issues: insecurity, stage fright, family conflicts, work related stress, bullying, weight loss struggles, unhappy romantic life, grief, low self-esteem, giving up negative habits, dealing with break up, improving confidence in exams and interviews, and more, to move towards a healthier and happier future.
I’m constantly approachable and responsive and continuously build confidence in clients and provide an honest, reliable and very respectful service.
Feel free to contact me so we can discuss your goals and how working together can create the shifts.
