Welcome to The International Psychology Clinic

Dr Martina Paglia, our Clinical Director welcomes you to The International Psychology Clinic.

How does therapy work?

Dr Martina Paglia talks about how therapy works. Our Psychologists' involvement starts with a comprehensive psychological assessment of clients’ needs and expectations, which usually takes between 3 to 6 sessions to complete. Following the initial stage of assessment, a case formulation and treatment plan is shared and agreed with the client. Number of sessions required to complete treatment is discussed at this stage and agreed between client and therapist. The psychological intervention that follows, usually between 8 to 25 sessions, is closely monitored and reviewed to ensure best results.

Who goes to therapy?

Dr Martina Paglia talks about who goes to therapy. People have many different reasons to consult a mental health professional. Anyone can seek help for a mental health problem, without barriers of age, gender, culture, ethnicity, sexual orientation, social class and religion. Mental health is more than the absence of mental disorders. Mental health is an integral part of health; indeed, there is no health without mental health.

How do I know I am choosing the right therapist for me?

Dr Martina Paglia talks about how to choose the right therapist for your issues. At the International Psychology Clinic we know how difficult can be to pick the right therapist. It is important to choose a therapist you can work with and trust. The better the relationship between you and your therapist, the more you are likely to benefit from talking therapy. To assist you with choosing the right therapist for your issues, we have created a section dedicated to our Team, where you can find more information about our Associates. All our Consultants are experienced and highly trained, but most of all they are the ones our clients like to work with. Check their profile page to learn more about their credentials and areas of expertise. Click here to meet the Team.

What will happen in my first therapy session?

Dr Martina Paglia talks about what to expect during your first therapy session. In your first session, your therapist will spend some time getting to know you and the issues that brought you into treatment. He or she may use a formal, structured interview, or it may just feel like a more free-flowing conversation. The therapist will ask questions about your presenting concerns, as well as your history and background.
