Lucia Berdondini, PhD, Psychotherapist, MBACP Accredited
Gestalt and Person Centred Psychotherapist and Supervisor. I work with individuals and couples. I also work with adolescents. My special areas of work are social anxiety, bullying at school and in the workplace, trauma, crisis, stress, depression, and various forms of abuse. I also work in Italian, as that's my native language.
I believe in a therapeutic process co-constructed between the therapist and the client. This means that I work differently with each individual, depending on what we find that is more helpful for each person. I refer to Gestalt principles and practice and this makes the work often very active, creative and experimental.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a PhD in Psychology and Counselling (1999) and a 4 years Diploma in Gestalt Psychotherapy (2004). I have a Certificate in Supervision (2006). I have been working in this field for more than twenty years both in UK and in Italy. I have also been working internationally as a therapist in countries in war and conflict/post conflict such as Afghanistan, Angola and some parts of India. I am very interested in humanitarian psychosocial intervention and I have a particular expertise in trauma, vicarious trauma, PTSD and burn out.
