Hi! My name is Paolo and I am a psychotherapist who operates mainly in Florence.
You can see on my website my résumé, even though I’d rather tell what brings me here today. After college I didn’t attend University at first, I’ve been travelling around for 4 years, I didn’t know exactly what I wanted to do. I began with children entertainment and education in the social domain, and then I became aware that I wanted more, and some of the experiences I was having at the time helped me more and more to define better what I wanted to do.
So I went to major in psychology. The academic world was a big bench mark for me, as I am a very pragmatic person. It left a big imprinting on me, not only as accumulated notions. At a certain point Gestalt Psychology crossed my path, and soon I understood which was my direction. Gestalt for me is experience, emotions, complexity and simplicity at the very same time. Conceptually framed in well being enhancement.
The symptom (either a person or a physical phenomenon) doesn’t have to be hidden and/or suppressed like we are use to do, maybe it is just something that requires to be carefully listened.
Going toward this attitude, I am cruising in my present as therapist.
In the video below I quickly mention tools and resources like EMDR, family constellations, bodywork. If you want to learn more, contact me!
