Claudio is an experienced psychologist who has worked in the field for over fifteen years. Claudio’s experience has involved working in a range of settings within the private, tertiary education, and not-for-profit sectors. Throughout his career, Claudio has managed clinical programs and professional education services. Claudio has extensive experience in providing supervision and training to psychologists, provisional psychologists, and others in helping professions.

Claudio works with adults, couples, and families experiencing a wide variety of issues and concerns. Claudio works from an insight orientated approach based on the theory and practice of psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, and existential psychotherapy.  This approach encourages clients to take the lead in the sessions in exploring what they see as most important, and developing their own concept of change, therefore feeling a sense of ownership around the therapy process. This can help individuals who are looking for more in-depth therapy or would like to explore deeper issues and concerns about themselves or their life direction.

Claudio’s approach emphasises:

  • Client led and client ownership of change
  • Insight and exploration orientated
  • Focus on intrapersonal (internal) and interpersonal (relational) experiences
  • Psychodynamically, Interpersonally, and existentially focused

Claudio works from our Melbourne-based offices at 33 Drummond Street, Carlton.
