Practice description

Samuele is my full name. You can call me Sam. I use they/he pronouns. I describe myself as a citizen of the world, learning how to walk gently on Earth.
My work brings together queer culture and ecological response-ability with a soulful perspective.

I am a registered HCPC & BADth dramatherapist and clinical supervisor. I work across Italy and the UK with queer communities, offering individual and group therapy, supervision and consultancy. In my free time I enjoy being outdoor in nature; walking, meditating and expressing myself creatively.

You can rely on a confidential, non-judgmental and non-stigmatising space to explore feelings and emotions at your own pace. In a world stuck in binary oppositions, the work that I do aims to offer a safe space to sit at the crossroads. The oblique approach of Sesame meets queer culture both pointing at a third space which native language is the open, not-interpretative image. Taking a step back from the literalised world of everyday life and one forward into the metaphorical of stories, myths and dreams can allow expansion of vision beyond the periphery of ego culture.

My approach is deeply influenced by Jungian psychology. My core training in the Sesame approach to dramatherapy as well as in Authentic Movement and in clinical supervision (Re-Vision) reflect a mythopoetic approach to Psyche. You may wonder if the process is a linear one, indeed, it is not. As Jung suggests ‘the way is not straight but appears to go round in circles’ (Jung, CW12, para.34)
