Valentina is a Chartered Clinical Psychologist (National Register of Italy), she is a Trainee Psychotherapist at EASE Wellbeing and she is currently working as an Assistant Psychologist in NELFT and with different sports Academies in London.
In 2015, Valentina completed her BSc in Psychology at the University of Bologna (IT) and proceeded in completing her MSc in Social Psychology at the University of Padova (IT) in 2018, where she conducted her dissertation on Patients’ dehumanization within medical contexts.
Valentina has always been interested in understanding the scientific reasons underneath psychological mechanisms and has vast experience in conducting research and working with patients in the neuropsychological field. Thanks to this, she has become aware of how the person underneath physical mechanisms and symptoms is too often not given enough relevance from the clinicians and has become a strong advocate of a person-centered approach, that privileges human connection and supports individuals while making them feel seen, heard, and cared about.
Valentina is passionate about Cross-Cultural Psychology and is aware that reality is interpreted and constructed differently by each of us. She holds an MSc in Cross-Cultural Psychology from Brunel University (London) and has extensive experience in working with refugees.
Lastly, an important part of Valentina’s life relies on being active and having a healthy lifestyle. For her, exercising is a great way to build self-confidence, compassion, and resilience. She holds an MSc in Sports and Exercise Psychology from Brunel University (London) which, followed by Stage 2 training with BASES UK, enables her to work with individuals and groups around sports and exercise-related topics.
