Chiara Apicella

I am a UKCP accredited Relational Transactional Analysis Psychotherapist.

I offer open-ended, long-term psychotherapy and time-limited, short-term counselling. I work within a secure, confidential, non-judgmental and empathic environment.

My approach is relational, which is an efficacious and powerful model of working with individuals who struggle with psychological, emotional and relational distress.

I work with clients from different cultures, backgrounds, lifestyles and sexual orientations.

I conduct therapy sessions in English and Italian.

If you’ve decided you want to talk to someone about your feelings, thoughts or behaviour that are causing you concern, I’m here to listen.

I offer an initial 15 minutes phone call to get a sense of what is troubling you and answer your questions.
