My Story

I am a clinical psychologist, but I have been a professional volleyball player for over 15 years in Italy. Being a volleyball player meant that a great part of my life gravitated around trainings and games for several hours a day; I then would invest the rest of my time studying psychology and later on clinical psychology.

I have always been attracted by the human mind and by the complexity and beauty of our inner world.

When I moved to the UK I continued my studies and developed an interest in Mindfulness, as well as Cognitive Behavioural therapy. I therefore qualified as CBT therapist at Oxford University and as Mindfulness teacher at the University of Bangor (North Wales, UK).

I am currently acting as the Clinical Director of The Mindfulness Project (UK), and over the years I have developed a strong research interest around wellbeing and mental health in various health care settings. My areas of expertise include anxiety, depression, eating disorders and mental health and wellbeing at work.

Finally I have a passion for Mindful Eating that took me to the US and Italy to train as Mindful Eating teacher and to develop professional trainings for other likeminded professionals. I am the Vice President of the Centre for Mindful Eating in the USA, a space dedicated to the education of professionals and general public around food and the interconnection between our bodies and minds.
