Her approach is integrative: She customises her treatment or consulting approach according to the unique requirements of her clients, drawing from a number of distinct approaches carefully and purposefully integrated to suit their specific needs, with a strong emphasis on the quality of the therapeutic relationship, working through the inevitable phenomenology unfolding within the therapeutic setting.
Adriana’s approach is rooted in psychodynamic theories and practice (mainly stemming from Jungian, relational and Object Relation theories) and integrates skilfully onto such foundations theories, skills and tools deriving from embodied & somatic psychotherapy, CBT and ‘3rd wave CBT’ frameworks – including Schema Therapy, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy and Mindfulness Based Therapy – attachment based, transpersonal, EMDR, somatosensory and trauma theories. She holds a spiritual vision of life and integrates Western psychology with Eastern philosophies, providing a unique, holistic, pioneering and powerful approach in practice to facilitate wellbeing and true happiness in her clients' lives.
Being a researcher with a specific focus on the field of gender studies as well as the impact of celebrities’ media images on females’ identities and sense of self, her main areas of specialty are related to low self-esteem, low self-confidence, identity lability, body image, alexithymia, eating and feeding and gender role issues.
Adriana is also highly experienced with relationship issues, parenting skills and in the treatment of depression, anxiety, trauma loss, grief and life transitions. Moreover, she loves helping people unleashing their most authentic selves, inner strength and resources, exploring their existential questions, facilitating the access to their authentic desire and higher self to achieve genuine, long-lasting and consistent happiness and fulfilment in life and to express who they are in the world to the fullest.
