Natalia Vavassori is an integrative counsellor, who draws on different theoretical models depending on what feels most helpful to the client.
Her main approach is psychodynamic, where she works with the clients to guide them towards a deeper understanding of themselves and help them identifying where they are struggling to find a way to change and live a more fulfilling life. Based on the psychoanalytic tradition, psychodynamic psychotherapy looks at past experiences to try and understand how they might be linked to present struggles in order to overcome them and live a healthier life. Natalia also believes in using humour in her practice.
Natalia has lived in different parts of the world and has been exposed to a range of cultures and challenges. She has worked with people with various different backgrounds. She has worked with people from the financial sector, creative professions, and has helped people with a variety of issues, including trauma, sexual abuse, depression, relationship issues, bipolar disorders, panic attacks, and self-harm.
Natalia has an understanding on the impact of the effects on body image on mental health and self-esteem. She has experience in working with clients who are struggling with their body image and helping them to think about the impact in other areas of their lives to build a healthy body image and positive self-esteem.
Natalia is an integrative counsellor working in private practice at Weight Matters. She has en extensive educational background, with a BSc in Integrative Counselling, a Postgraduate Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and a Masters in Psychology.
