I am an English-speaking Counselling Psychologist and a Psychotherapist in training. I work privately in Rome with the expat community.
Since obtaining my registration in 2015, I have worked in the mental health field, in both private and public contexts in Italy and in the UK. My experience includes working with both Italian and English speaking people suffering from a variety of emotional and psychological difficulties.
I have extensive clinical experience in the following areas: depression, anxiety, social anxiety, phobia, panic attacks, stress, Eating Disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Personality Disorders (Cluster B), trauma and childhood trauma, suicide, loss and past and present relationship problems.
I draw on different therapeutic models such as psychodynamic and attachment theory as well as cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and humanistic approach, integrating them with each other. We will work collaboratively to understand which way of working best suits your current goals and needs.
I always try to make my clients at ease with a warm and non-judgmental approach. This helps to speak openly about uncomfortable issues and explore them within a safe relationship, which I aim to provide.
Together, we will consider the origin of your problems and how they may be affecting your life, thoughts and feelings. We will work on understanding your thoughts and feelings as well as what you are hoping to achieve from our sessions. Through therapy, you will also learn new strategies to help you cope with unwanted thoughts or behaviours, face challenges and relieve stress. The exploration of your early experiences and current situation will also help understand more the world as you do.
In my free time, I enjoy outdoors and socialising. I also like travelling as I love visiting different countries and experiencing new cultures. I am a pet lover and a pet owner. I am also interested in art, cinema, and photography. I consider myself a nice and friendly person.
I am an English-speaking Counselling Psychologist in Rome specialised in psychological therapies for children, teenagers, adults, older adults and couples.

From a parent's perspective, Eleonora has been a fantastic therapist. Within three months, my daughter, who was seeing her, is going so much better, has gained confidence, and learned how to deal with her anxieties. I highly recommend Eleonora.
Eleonora has been patient, kind and insightful: she is an excellent listener, combining the approach of a subject matter expert with a warm and compassionate touch.
Amongst other things, Eleonora has helped me identify and examine a number of unhelpful patterns of behaviour and ways of thinking, and has suggested constructive, practical and thoughtful ways of bringing about appropriate adjustments.
In addition, Eleonora is adept at challenging me when appropriate, in a constructive and well considered manner.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Eleonora.
