I am Dalila, a counsellor and a supervisor, working online using webcam, emails and Instant Messaging meetings.
I am Italian, living in Italy, but if possible I would speak many more languages which would enable to talk with more people around the world.
My passion for speaking with people is the engine that drove me to learn English and to work in English as well.
I am a registered counsellor, mainly working with women who live experience or have experienced domestic abuse.
I also work with young people, and groups.
The choice to become a counsellor came after volunteered in an organization which helped kids with their homework (tutoring) and we also looked after them while their mothers were at work.
I also worked as a librarian, organizing many events for children, we had lots of fun in our small but busy library!
I also worked as an employee in schools, directly with the students.
After my daughters grew up, and having ended my school job, I started studying to become a counsellor.
Our home was always full of children and young people because I love them and enjoy to understand their thoughts.
You can imagine a home with kids camping everywhere, a few rules and boundaries were needed, but everyone was happy!
What could be more beautiful to witnessing children become men and women?
Similarly, what could be more beautiful than to witnessing my clients find their own self!
I like cooking, you know I am Italian! Loving make fresh pasta and fresh bread, which I offer as breakfast to my bed and breakfast guests.
Yes, you read that correctly!
My home is an ancient and large one, so we decided to set up rooms for our mothers, who unfortunately couldn’t live here. Since we love meeting people, my girls were young people, I opened a B&B, a special one where you can recharge yourself and now I also offer counselling and supervision sessions.
Ome is a small rural village, where you can hear the sound of farmers and children play in the streets.
Surrounded by hills and vineyards, it is the perfect place for you to contemplate the wonder of life.
We are at Franciacorta country land where wine finds its best place to be tasted!
All of that keeps my psychological wellbeing in check:
walking through hills nearby, listening to birds singing around, talking with people, cycling, cooking, reading, listen to music, spending time with friends and relatives.
This town is close to Iseo lake, where I am from, so I come back to my birth family home for kayaking or climbing Montisola, or practising Nordic Walking, while on Winter, we are just a bit of more than an hour from mountains where I love nordic skiing.
Yes, a healthy body is connected to a healthy mind, so when I work with you, there is good attention to your body and its sensations that drives us to understand your feelings.
