12 Years Experience

I am a Counsellor in Private Practice. I work from a Person-Centered Approach with the clients that I see. I offer a comfortable space for you to be yourself. I am qualified and experienced to listen and guide you through your therapy process. I am non-judgemental and here to work with whatever you bring to your session.

My areas of interest include the following (but not limited to):

Individual Counselling and Psychotherapy
Relationship Problems
Couples Counselling
Teenage Problems
Time Management & Study Skills
Depression
Anxiety
Suicide
Bereavement (Pre and Post Death)
Financial Issues
Trauma
HIV/Aids
Sexuality (Including Sexual Orientation)
Career Counselling
Pre-Marriage Counselling

I am committed to equality in practice and I celebrate diversity. This includes race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation. I have experience of working with people in South Africa and England from Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer (LGBTQ) and Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) communities.

I have been working as a Psychotherapist for the past 13 years; My experience includes counselling in my own Private Practice since 2009 as well as heading up Counselling Departments in large secondary state schools in Durban, South Africa and London, England. At the end of 2015, I moved to Bristol and began working for a children's hospice in the paediatric palliative field. I am a Senior Team Leader: Family Support which involves coordinating the family support services; namely bereavement counselling and support pre and post death. I also attend meetings with the palliative team at Bristol Children's Hospital regularly to parallel plan end of life cases; as well as liaise and network with other local services. I have seen clients from all walks of life and prefer to work with clients aged 11 years to retirement age/death.

I completed a Bachelor of Psychology - Counselling (Honours) which included research during my internship - my treatise is entitled: A Psychobiography on Reverend Jim Jones – I was awarded a distinction for this treatise. In 2010 I went on to study further and completed a Master of Education - Cum Laude with a thesis titled "A Phenomenological Exploration: How Secondary School Teachers cope with Depressed Adolescents in the Classroom".

In 2011 I joined SADAG's (South African Depression and Anxiety Group) local Support Group for Suicide and Depression, and ran that with a colleague. We held meetings once a month for the community.

From time to time, I had the privelege of flying with Air Mercy Red Cross on the "10 Seater Flying Doctors Plane" to Pongola (Northern Kwazulu Natal) on the Swaziland Border to Counsel for the day at the Itshelejuba Hospital. Here we counselled anything issue from Rape, Suicide, Depression to Children Assessments. It was extremely rewarding, and an amazing way to give back to the community.

I am a Registered Member of the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy.

"Stefano is clearly very experienced and very good at his job. He was polite and respectful. He listened to what I had to say, made me feel comfortable talking and interjected well. He made it very clear to me that we were there to help me together and that there were many options for me. It was a breath of fresh air, given that my last therapy experience wasn't altogether positive. I'm excited to have more sessions with Stefano. "
