Psychotherapy and Counselling in English and Italian
with Roberta Musillo
Welcome to my profile.
I was born in Rome and moved to live in London in my mid twenties. I am therefore bilingual and I offer counselling and psychotherapy in English and Italian.
I am a Humanistic psychotherapist and counsellor and believe that each person I work with is unique and individual. My approach is therefore flexible and sensitive to the personal biography of each client.
I am committed to respecting and supporting each individual and deepening their awareness as a way to achieve their full potential in life. I am also an integrative therapist in that I draw from a range of psychotherapeutic theories and techniques, Gestalt therapy and Formative Psychology being my preferred ones.
The warmth, wisdom and commitment I bring to my work is informed and enriched by my experience as the mother of two daughters and as a partner in a long-term relationship.
As a spirited seeker of personal truth and inner beauty, I am passionate about honouring and supporting the artist in each of us.
I have worked and lived in many countries and am now based in North London.
I offer long-term and short-term therapy according to the individual’s needs.

- Anger management
