Dr Martina Paglia
Clinic Director | Psychologist Kensington & Chelsea
I am a highly qualified Private Clinical and Counselling Psychologist in Kensington & Chelsea, with excellent people skills, dedicated work ethic and committed to providing the highest standards of psychological services. I am registered with the leading professional organisations within my discipline and licensed to practise in the UK and Italy and Chartered with The Italian Psychological Society. My training is in Clinical, Community and Developmental Psychology, specifically including models of psychopathology, clinical psychometrics and neuropsychology, five distinct psychological therapies and lifespan development psychology.
My 12 year training qualifies me as a BSc in Psychology and an MSc in Clinical and Community Psychology from the Salesian Pontifical University of Rome, and an MA in Psychoanalytic Studies from the Tavistock and Portman, accredited by the University of East London. I passed the Licensing Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology at La Sapienza University of Rome. I attended a course on working with people with eating disorders and body dysmorphia and a preclinical psychodynamic and systemic training on work with children, adolescents and families at the Tavistock and Portman. I completed a training in Schema Therapy at the Schema Therapy Institute, a training in EMDR at EMDR Academy and a training in Brainspotting at Brainspotting UK. I am currently undertaking a PhD in infant mental health and parent-infant psychotherapy at the Department of Psychosocial and Psychoanalytic Studies at the University of Essex.
My education and clinical experience has provided me with a strong background in both individual and group psychological therapies. I am adept at assessment, consultation, counselling and therapy. I have years of experience working in leading institutions in the City of London, including the National Healthcare System, Local Authorities, Private Practice and Charities. My therapeutic experience covers working with under5s and their parents, children, adolescents, adults, older adults, couples and families experiencing a wide range of emotional and behavioural difficulties.
