My name is Gessica, I’m a Clinical and Forensic Practitioner Psychologist specialized in Integrative Psychotherapy. Registered at Regional Council of Lombardy no. 9964 and currently undergoing registration at HCPC in London.
I graduated in Developmental and Social Psychology at Università Cattolica of Milan in 2003, discussing an experimental thesis based upon the observation and care of comorbidity between Somatoform Disorders and Adjustment Disorder. In 2009 I graduated in Forensic Criminology at Liuc Univeristy and in Tribunal Expertise Techniques at Univeristà Cattolica, becoming a Court of Law Expert in 2011 both for Civil and Criminal matter. In 2015 I accomplished my specialization in Short Integrated Psychotherapy at Iserdip Insitute of Milan. In the meanwhile I practiced continuosly since then on as clinical Psychologist with adults and young adults, before at Fatebenefratelli Hospital in Milan for five years, then privately.
We shall begin with a couple of interviews and eventually a test of personality to accomplish the clinical assessment. After that we plan the therapeutic path together considering also your expectations and needs. Then we schedule a time table of weekly meetings, at the same time of the same day. The duration of the treatment depends on many factors, for instance: your priorities; your defences; the awareness of your problems and the resistance to them. The treatment is over when we feel together we have reached the goals and you feel better from pain and discomfort.
My approach is open, non judgemental and relational and it stimulates to work actively when with me and at home alone. No active work, no progression.
We shall work per focuses: tackling the problems as they rise. From the biggest one on. So, I offer to the Client my high ranked professional skills and experience, along with OPL and HCPC proficiency standards and ethical conduct. Any information will be treated as strictly confidential. Any problem should rise at any time, please let me know at once in order to face and solve it in time and tranquility.
Born as a Freudian follower, I embraced the Bio-Psycho-Social Pattern and the Behavioural- Cognitive Psychology, developing a life span model of intervention. My clinical practice integrates these three reference patterns, offering to the Client the right answer to their needs and habits, also welcoming cultural differences and origins. Furthermore, I can blend Mindfulness sessions, in case of high level stress disorder or anxiety/panic.
I also promote to my clients a healthy life style suggesting, for instance: meditation, healthy food program or relaxing acupuncture or physiotherapy in cooperation with specialized medical doctors of my network, whom I refer the clients to.
Intervention dedicated to parents in need of help with adolescents, or because of a legal divorce or either in case of conduct/behavioural disorder and anger outbursts. I am concerned also in psychological support to couples facing omo/heterologous MAP, available to interface with clinics and specialists.
Fond of nature, wildlife, cats and dogs, I like spending my free time travelling, cooking and reading books. Either theatre and cinema are my favourite passions. Biking, Yoga, tango and swimming make my days bright and joyful. Charity to neglected children associations.
I am an English-speaking therapist in Milan, Italy speacialised in psychotherapy for adults, couples and families.

Dr Marengo made me feel heard, seen and respected from session one. She is helping me be better and i'm very thankful for that. I always come out of each session with something to reflect on. She doesn't sugar coat things and even though sometimes what I learn about myself is hard to swallow, it helps me become a better individual with more self awareness. I have learned how to build more healthy connections with friends, family and relationships. Also, how to put my self care first.
