Dr. Valentina Faia , MD (Italy)

Specialist Psychiatrist

Dr. Valentina Faia

I’ve always being fascinated by the complexity of the mind-body interaction and, being a Psychiatrist and a Psychotherapist, I always have in mind that caring for wellness means caring for balance.

I have been passionate about and loved my profession from the very beginning of my 15 years of experience. It enables me to establish such a deep connection with every single client in a genuine and meaningful way. I have always been deeply engaged by the unique and truly incomparable experience of accessing the psyche and inner world of my clients. I view each session and consultation as a privileged journey. I used to work in a Psychiatric Ward of a General Hospital while running my private practice and giving Lectures to younger colleagues. Working across many different clinical settings I gained an ever-growing expertise in managing complicated cases.

My aim remains always to help my clients to restore their body-mind balance, giving effective medications and combining medications and psychotherapy psychodynamically oriented when required.
