Allegra Catolfi Salvoni
BACP Registered Counsellor
I am a warm, nurturing, strong and compassionate psychotherapeutic counsellor and coach with over 7 years' experience of supporting people to heal, reconnect to themselves, their relationships and, consequently, their dreams. And move into a healthier and happier place.
I offer a non-judgemental and safe space in which to explore feelings, current situations, behaviours and desires for change through talking, movement, exercises and practical tools.
I believe it is through awareness and gentle acknowledgement that change becomes possible. I also believe that many of our difficulties arise because of our relationships (past and present) - and that change happens only when our ways of thinking about these is shifted.
My commitment to you is to hold you as creative, immensely resourceful and always driving towards health. Even though it may not seem, or have always felt, like it. By reframing how we look at our behaviours and the feelings that drive them, we come to understand that we are always trying to do the best we can: I will offer you gentle challenge to look beyond what you already see and know and into what else is also possible and available to you now. And I commit to work creatively with you to find a new way through - one that's right for you - using practical tools, strategies, embodied practice, psycho-education and, most importantly, by supporting and championing you every step of the way.
I have extensive experience in working with relationship issues, connection, relational trauma, work-life balance, self esteem, sexual trauma and violence, cultural and gender identity issues, disabilities, anxiety, personality disorders and compulsive behaviours. I am an embodied practitioner, who uses somatic exercises and practice to explore what's present in the room, between us and therefore in your wider world.
I offer therapy in English and Italian.
