    Dr Luca was absolutely great. His consultations were really tailored to me and my progress. He was very attentive, constantly asking for feedback to make sure I was comfortable enough and getting the help I needed. He was able to teach me great techniques that I've been using and he was really fun to work with, and definitely very helpful.

    Working with Luca has been a pleasure all-around. He's very kind, knowledgeable, insightful and down to earth. Of all the therapists I've worked with, he was the first one to really identify the obsessive nature of my anxiety, and in only a few months, by teaching me new techniques to deal with obsessive thoughts, I managed to get back in control of my life. He immediately pointed me in the right direction, after a few introductory sessions. I'm definitely more than satisfied with the results, can't recommend him enough.

    Working with Luca brought back me to a more positive version of myself. His attitude to go the extra mile for his client surprised me since our first session. He has been capable to defuse the negative feelings I had about starting CBT therapy for the first time in my life after many of my friends recommended it to me as "I was clearly struggling with my anxiety and my low mood". Luca helped me re-learning how to cope with everyday difficulties and how to overcome my anxiety symptoms. I left more confident and stronger than before.

    Luca is an interested therapist. I was someone who was skeptical about therapy as I had done a huge amount of research, went to talks, read books etc, Luca was able to ask the right questions and my sessions progressed faster than I expected. I went to therapy with a cloudy mind and came out understanding the causes for it. The reasons that put me down are not my concern any longer, thanks to Luca. Good therapist. Highly recommend him.

    At first, I had a concern that communication may become less smooth as English is not my first language and neither was the doctor's. However as session proceeded I realised I couldn't have been more wrong. Dr Pozzi is very sharp and sensitive hence is able to catch any subtlety in between the lines. His professionalism and compassion is great that I felt understood all the time even when I struggled to put my thoughts in words appropriately. Thus on the firm foundation of feeling of trust, I was willing to follow series of his suggestions of works and practices that I could easily carry out through the week, which have gradually helped me gain control of my own emotions and further more, overall well being of my life.

    Meeting with Luca has given me a lot of strength and self-confidence from session one. No matter how anxious I go into a session I always walk out much more relieved and reassured that there is a solution to every problem. He is a great listener and takes every problem I describe seriously. He’s also equipped me with a lot of useful info material that helps me even outside our meeting time to ground myself and calm down. He’s a great professional and person and I highly recommend him to anyone who has trouble opening up.

    Luca is a wonderful counselor. He has been very kind and helpful. I feel that I can talk to him about anything and not being criticized. He helped me to feel better and taught me how to carry on without him after our sessions. I was not certain about getting help in the beginning but I am really happy to have met Luca and I am grateful for his help.

    Working with Luca has been an extremely positive experience for me. He is incredibly skilled at creating a comfortable environment in which to open up and learn. He brings his expertise and knowledge to sessions in an easily-digestible format and this really enabled me to feel like we were learning and exploring together. Luca's kindness, patience, understanding and knowledge have changed my life for the better and I would heartily recommend him to anyone looking for professional support.

    After over a decade of unsuccessful therapists/councillors etc, I had almost given up on the possibility of finding a therapist that would work for me. This was until I was lucky enough to of been referred to Luca Pozzi. In the time that we have been meeting we have, and continue to work on issues I struggle with including depression, anxiety and low self esteem and Luca has created a safe and professional environment for me to work them through. Luca has given me the confidence and support to confront personal issues I have not had the courage to face before as well as given me the strength to make positive changes in my life. Luca is an excellent therapist and I would confidently recommend him to any person seeking help.
