Approach to Therapy:
Alessia was trained in and is experienced with existential, humanistic, psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioural approaches, holding particular interest in mindfulness and the third wave of behaviour therapies. Alessia sees the therapeutic process as being a collaboration, a unique piece of work that is jointly created between the therapist and the client. Although the practitioner’s experience, education, and credentials are important, therapy is a person-to-person relationship before it is anything else. No matter how the problem or issue initially presents itself, therapy can be an opportunity to connect us to important life questions about what is meaningful to us, and how we want to live.
