Paolo AssandriPsychosynthesis psychotherapist
I am an Italian-born, London-based Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist. I have more than 10 years of experience in the field of psychotherapy and counselling (both online and in person).
In the last few years, I have developed a strong interest in anxiety and in chronic pain management. For the treatment of those issues, I provide an integrative therapeutic approach where psycho-educational interventions, mindfulness-based activities and individual psychotherapy are blended in order to help clients cope efficiently with those conditions and lead a fulfilling life.
As an Italian-born expat, I especially enjoy working with Italians who have recently moved to the UK or who are looking for a therapist with whom they can speak in their native language and share a common cultural background.
I offer short-term as well as long-term counselling and psychotherapy both in English and in Italian, as I am an Italian native speaker. Even though short-term counselling is my favorite way to work with clients, it might not be the right approach for everyone. The number of sessions will be generally agreed in the first three sessions, after assessing the client's needs and goals.
I offer online psychotherapy and counselling sessions on Zoom, Skype and Cliniko.
Do not hesitate to contact me for further information.
