I’m a psychologist and Lacanian psychoanalytic psychotherapist.
I’ve been working using a psychoanalytic and psychodynamic approach for the past 6 years.
At the centre of the therapy is the person’s uniqueness.
The treatment proceeds from a breaking point, or from a symptom, or perhaps from something the patient is not aware of, through to the possibility that these weaknesses can be converted into strengths.
I work in Italian. I think that the job we do, being about words, requires the practitioner to understand all the shades of the words the person is using – for example to describe a feeling.
If you’d like to start a treatment, I would invite you to a first assessment where we would figure out what it is that’s bringing you to think about therapy. Then, together, we would work out how you would like to start on this path.
Training, qualifications and experience
The Freudian Institute teaching follows the Freudian theory, where there are theoretical and practical seminars and also self psychoanalysis.
The theoretical training includes teachings, seminars, national and international conferences. At the end of each year there is a theoretical exam and a thesis written about a clinical case. There was also a comparative study between different theoretical models.
Furthermore, in each school year I attended 180 hours of training and 30 hours of supervision.
Over the years I have added to this core training in eating disorders.
