Dr. Monica Basta

Psychologist

I am an Italian psychologist who lives here in London and deeply knows the profound meaning of moving to a new country and starting a new life. With my professional and personal experience, I turn to the Italians here in London who feel the need for help to deal with life issues. Being able to do it in your native language makes us feel more protected and understood, while I help you working on your unexpressed potential and internal resources, to achieve your WellBeing and improve your quality of life.

 

My approach

I apply the Gestalt psychological methodology, which consists of a holistic and mindfulness approach to the person with a focus on the "here and now", so with a priority to the present dimension over the past in clinical investigation and therapy and to the interaction between the individual and the environment with the guiding idea of a creative therapeutic relationship that respects the uniqueness of every human being.

I also apply the EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) psychotherapy that enables people to heal from the symptoms and emotional distress that are the result of disturbing life experiences. Once we have identified the trauma together, I proceed to prepare the person for the EMDR treatment, apply it and then once the block is removed, healing resumes. In this way I help the person to activate their natural healing processes.

I am a Chartered Psychologist, Gestalt Psychotherapist and EMDR Therapist.

I have more than 20 years experience working in my private practice and with Italian hospitals, working on the empowerment of personal resources and dealing with major psychological disorders: anxiety disorders, mood disorders, eating behaviour disorders, obesity and bariatric support, couple problems, relational and family difficulties, sense of insecurity and inadequacy, problems of self-esteem. As specialist in eating disorders I apply Psychobiotic, the science of the gut-brain connection.
