About me

Hi, I’m Luigi and I’m a fully accredited and UKCP registered Hypno-Psychotherapist and Personal Development/Meditation Facilitator.

If you experience daily stress, anxiety, self-esteem, procrastination, phobias and existential issues without really knowing why, there’s a good chance that you can better understand your emotional and behavioural patterns and resolve these inner difficulties in a positive way. I can help you do this.

Since 2010, I’ve been teaching meditation and personal development classes around the world to thousands of people who are interested in exploring the many different facets of mind (conscious, unconscious and everything in-between). This has led me to a deep understanding of the waking, dreaming and sleeping mind and the phenomena of lucid dreaming, out of body experiences, sleep paralysis, night terrors, insomnia and various other parasomnias that disturb a good night’s sleep and can make you feel tired and drained in the daytime.

If you’re interested in working with your dreams to build a stronger relationship with your unconscious mind, how to resolve your nightmares and night terrors or how to improve your quality of sleep so that you feel more refreshed and energised, and so operating with greater focus and creativity in your daily life, then I can help guide you through this process.

I offer private sessions in consulting rooms in the Darwen and Bolton areas and by appointment (daytime, evening and weekends) to provide a more tailored approach to understanding and better meeting their specific needs in a safe, supportive, and non-judgemental environment.

I also offer very convenient, secure and confidential online therapy sessions via VSee and Zoom (please see my website or call me for a technical checklist of what’s required for online therapy). Whether in person, online or group work, I observe the UKCP & TMI codes of ethical conduct.

I encourage anyone to explore personal therapy, not only to resolve inner conflicts but also to help unlock hidden creative resources. I have had the pleasure of seeing many people enhance all areas of their lives when they take simple steps towards a greater understanding and expression of themselves.

I invite you to do the same.
