About me

Hi there and welcome. My name is Ciro, and I am an Italian Therapist who lives and works in UK, offering sessions in both languages.
If you stopped here, that means that probably you are looking for some assistance, so I hope you will find this information useful when choosing the right support for your needs.
Let me start asking you a question: What steps are you taking to ensure your emotional and psychological needs are satisfied?
If you are struggling with saying no and ending up pleasing everybody but yourself, feel like trapped and incapable to get rid of worries and anxiety or just overwhelmed with your current life situation, then perhaps you are not meeting some of your needs and I can help you with that.
I focus on understanding your unconscious processes and behavioural patterns as much as the biology behind the brain and body connection. This helps me gain a deep understanding of stress, anxiety, depression, trauma and much more. I work around you to find the best approach and therapeutic style to support you in the challenges life gives us.
I greatly enjoy working with individuals through often complex issues, working together to help them recognize, identify and achieve their goals. That's why I work with you in mind, maintaining a safe environment where you will be able to explore yourself and make positive therapeutic changes, improve your overall well-being and therefore enhance your quality of life.
I draw from a multitude of techniques and scientific knowledge to help you understand how to move forward in your personal growth and development, even when this is affected by mental health issues. Psychodynamic, humanistic approaches and CBT are just some of the most commons therapy I practice. My skills and experience have matured through academic studies at university and practical work while counselling people affected with different issues like childhood and adulthood trauma, identity issues, PTSD, personality disorders, anxiety, panic attacks, eating disorders, depression and more.
I If you find interest in my profile and want to know more about the ways we can work together, get in touch with me.
I am here to help.

My first time doing therapy has been life enhancing! He managed to oversee my original dilemma whilst making me see the true crux of all my issues! That of drinking to numb myself out over everything. It’s been 6 weeks sober and I feel terrific! Thank-you!

He is excellent. Really listens and understands. More than counselling as it feels like Pau offers you solutions as well as techniques to feel better and to find the endemic reasons for feeling depressed or anxious. Pau is receptive and his knowledge of the physiological processes as well as knowledge of the brain, provides me with more understanding and root cause.

Just had session 12 and it’s been one of the best things I’ve done for my mental health. Ciro is Kind and compassionate. He’s always on time and has never needed to cancel. He listens and allows you to be open and honest without judgement. Cannot wait to see what the future holds now.

Ciro is great. I have made so much progress in only a few sessions. He is kind and understanding, but he also challenges me and makes me think about what I am saying. HIs advice is practical, effective and down to earth. Sometimes I don't like what he says because it challenges my narrative (which is the whole point of it), but he always says it in a respectful and kind way and the challenges always lead to insight on my part. I would highly recommend Ciro if you really want to understand your feelings and behaviours and want to move forward in a practical way towards recovery. Thank you Ciro.
