“I m so grateful to Lorella and what she does. Our sessions have blown my mind many times and showed me a new way to ‘be’ with myself and the outcome is truly life changing. My relationships have benefited immensely and my parenting is gentler as I also learn to ‘hold’ myself. Lorella has this incredible capacity to take me deep into myself in a short period of time. Her approach is gentle yet powerful. Can’t speak highly enough.”
“Lorella transformed my relationship to my feelings, my body, my sex life, my partner and my own clients. I looked forward to every session and knew that whatever state I was in, I was welcome and I would be received with genuine warmth and wisdom. The techniques and practices she teaches I continue to use daily to help me navigate my inner world. I am very grateful that I was able to receive exactly what I needed when I needed it from this truly amazing therapist.”
“I have worked with Lorella on and off for over seven years and she is my most favourite therapist ever (and I have seen quite a few of them!). She is exquisitely skilled at using Hakomi, has an extraordinarily loving presence and brings in a wealth of experience from other modalities she has trained in like sexological bodywork and meditation. If you are into approaching your difficulties with mindfulness and in the body, I can’t recommend her highly enough, both as an individual or as a couple’s therapist..”
“I have learnt so much that has changed my life forever. Initially I found it challenging to put my ‘story’ aside and start paying attention to the quality of my emotions, perceptions and subtle feelings. Now I have a jewel of knowing that will always stay with me.
“I have struggled with strong emotions for almost my whole life. For many years I thought something was really wrong with me. It was only when I met Lorella that I finally experienced this relief that I wasn’t crazy. I felt understood. From the first appointment, I found a safe and nurturing space which has made integrating my childhood experiences so much easier. I’ve been learning about how to navigate any emotions in the body, through her intuition, sweetness and clear guidance, and actually feel them. By learning more about the subtle body and the unconscious mind, I’m learning to be present moment-by-moment to any emotions that get stirred in me, regardless of their intensity. Lorella has given me enough tools to make this process exciting and playful, even if at times it can still be really challenging.”
“Lorella provides the most nurturing, loving, safe space in which to journey. A space where you feel seen & heard & with this the ability to reach a deeper understanding & healing around old patterns. I am so grateful to Lorella for her love, support & wisdom in both my personal work & couples therapy with my husband. My work with her has created such growth, transformation & healing in all areas of my life from how I work, to the relationships I have with my husband, children, friends & community. Forever grateful.”
“I am continually recommending Lorella to my friends as I’ve found her sessions so supportive and transformative. She helps me access the subconscious parts of me I am often not connected to. She holds space in such a way that I can surrender to the unknown and meet these parts that need my unconditional love and tender attention. I’ve often seen Lorella for ’emergency’ situations, where I’ve been in trauma response and I’ve come out the other side being able to breathe and hold myself. Rather than numbing the heightened emotional response to make it stop in moments I’m feeling out of control. I highly recommend Lorella’s work as a form of emotional healing and processing.”
“When I first met Lorella I’d been on a (Buddhist) spiritual path for 18 years and had spent many years in psychodynamic psychotherapy. I had a good understanding of my story and the impact of the patterns that played out in my life. Lorella guided me to a whole new level of embodied awareness; Finally I was able to have an experiential sense of the story and to digest the pain.
Each session has been powerful and healing. She listens with patience to my ramblings and intuitively identifies the key thread that will bring me home to myself. Through her modelling, I now have an observer or witness part on board; I can hold myself at times of distress and appreciate the joy during the good times.
Lorella’s emotion and body practices have given me a way out of the numbness of dissociation. I’m able to rest more often in the peace and calm that I’ve longed for all my life. I trust that she has been on this journey ahead of me and her wisdom and insight are deeply precious.”
