Gaia Porcelli

M.Sc. Clinical Psychology in Berlin

As an English and Italian speaking psychologist, I aim to help clients to find their strengths and improve their skills. These will be the best allies to reduce distress and suffering.

About Gaia

I'm a trained clinical-psychologist from Italy, who has spent most of her life abroad. Because of my passion for travel, I decided to learn how to face and help expats to deal with challenges (such as loneliness, isolation, low self-esteem, low self-efficacy, language barriers, and desperation) and, at the same time, to guide them in discovering their strengths and use those proficiently.

My Approach

Though my approach was dynamic, lately I had the opportunity to learn other techniques from different branches, such as counseling, positive psychology, constructivism theories, and gender studies. Moreover, during the past year I´ve started to learn more about Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and I´m actively using some of those techniques. For this reason, nowadays I would say that my approach is more eclectic than strictly dynamic.
My goal is to help my clients to become the best version of themselves, besides labels or diagnoses. The aim is to help everyone to perceive him/her/*self as worthy of being happy, fulfilled, and better since each one of us is unique and strongly valuable.
To reach this enormous goal, in my opinion, is exceptionally important to work not only on what causes the client's suffering but also his/her/* strengths. These will be the real allies in the journey to becoming capable and ready to deal with overcome challenges and difficulties.
Lastly, since everyone is different and some methods are better suited to some people, I adapt my approach based on the individual, the specific problems he/she/* is encountering, and his/her/* goals.
