Maurizio Orani

Clinical Psychologist
Gestalt Psychotherapist

I am a Clinical Psychologist and Gestalt Psychotherapist with over 10 years’ experience working in the public and private sector with various issues: abuse, anxiety, anger management, eating disorders, gender dysphoria, obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and depression.

Gestalt therapy recognizes the possibility to change and learn effective strategies to restart a good relationship with the outside world. Throughout this process I will guide and support you to explore all the positive possibilities you have for being happy and satisfied. As a client you are in control of your creative process. I can help you discover your strength, overtake your “pain” and be protagonist in your life.

Sessions with me are supportive, non-judgmental, and at times, playful and fun. I bring both levity and sensitivity to the most delicate of situations. You will become more confident, more comfortable in your own skin. If you’re alive, there’s a place for you in the world. We can create the path to this place together.
