About me

My name is Flavio Cernotta. I am a fully qualified and experienced therapists who is passionate about helping people lead a fulfilling and meaningful life. I was born and raised within a multicultural community, which taught me to value and respect diversity from a very young age. I have lived in the UK for most of my life but have also spent many years living, working and studying in Switzerland as well as Italy. London is home.

I have previously worked for NHS funded treatment programmes, a homeless charity and a national phone line for people in crisis. I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychosynthesis Counselling and a Higher Diploma in modern European languages.

Prior to becoming a therapist I studied modern European languages with a view to become an interpreter. At the time this seemed a natural choice as I was raised bilingual and showed a love for languages, dialects and accents from a very young age. As I learned about different cultures, my love for languages was overtaken by a desire to understand people’s behaviour.
