Alessandra Petrolati Alessandra Petrolati
HQualifications and affiliations: BSc, MSc, Developmental Psychologist, Constructivist Psychotherapist; Personal Construct Psychology Association (PCPA); UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP); Assciazione Italiana di Psicoterapia e Psicoterapia Costruttivista (AIPPC); Albo e Ordine Psicologi - Piemonte (sez. A n. 7379).
Specializing: Communication issues in intimate relationships (couple, family); Emotional and behavioural issues in children and adolescents; Parents training; anxiety and panic attacks; depression
I think different kinds of suffering hide a common experience of suspension or block that generates the feeling of being unable to understand how to carry on, as every attempt to move forward comes to a standstill.
Anxiety, depression, obsessions, relationship difficulties, a sense of losing oneself are some expressions of this feeling of being blocked.
Therapy: I am a psychologist and a constructivist psychotherapist. I have been working for more than ten years with adolescents, adults and couples in order to recover the momentum in their life which they feel they have lost.
The therapeutic process is a journey I go on with people who ask me for help. It is a shared path towards a greater understanding of the problem experienced and the way it is stopping them living their life. This work goes towards the dissolution of the problem and the exploration of possible alternatives, from which the person can choose and resume his/her path.
The fundamental premise of my professional and personal action is:
  • the sense of legitimacy of every walk of life and the deep respect for it;
  • the constructive alternativism concept so "all of our present interpretations of the universe are subject to revision or replacement" (Kelly, 1955);
  • the relevance of the relationship in the developmental process of everyone.

I seek to provide a safe and facilitative therapeutic relationship, within which you feel unconditionally accepted and deeply understood. My own experience as both a client and a therapist has shown me that when people are met in this way, they will find within them the ability to move through difficulty and find their own way forward. I will endeavour to be alongside you whatever you wish to explore.
