My name is Salvo and I am a qualified integrative psychotherapist, having completed a five year training journey at the CCPE.
I have six years' experience of working with clients, since starting my training. This was in private practice for three years and also through clinical placements at Mind, the Caravan Drop-in Counselling centre and ELOP and through my employment working in residential rehabs for addiction in West London, in social care doing drop-in sessions for vulnerable people and working with survivors of domestic abuse. Prior to this I was working in the advertising media industry for some years.
I am an English and Italian speaking therapist and work in a LGBTQ and diversity affirmative way with people from different backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identity. I offer psychotherapy services in London and Online via Skype, Zoom or Google Meet.
Trauma and addictions are a big area of interest of mine, together with incorporating mindfulness, body work and creative methods in the work, when I feel this might be useful to you. I provide trauma therapy for complex trauma using an integrative transpersonal model.
I find that a playful spirit and a little bit of humour sometimes helps us to navigate through our own moments of darkness.
It is in those very moments of crisis that at times there is an opportunity to change our lives and for something new to take form. This was the case for me when I decided to change my circumstances and started training.
If you are in one of those moments in your life right now, it would be an honour for me to hold the hope for you that change is possible and to accompany you for some of your journey.
