Psychological support and therapy in English
My name is Claudia Carrara and I offer individual as well as family/couple support and therapy in English at my office in Copenhagen. I obtained my degree in Psychology from Copenhagen University in 2009, majoring in Clinical and Neuropsychology, and in 2013 I completed a Ph.D in Cognitive Psychology.
During the years, my career and my interests have taken three parallel directions: Research on the neural mechanisms that shape different states of consciousness, cognitive psychotherapy and university teaching. I am extern lector at the University of Copenhagen where I teach neuroscience of human consciousness, and I occupy a faculty position at DIS Copenhagen where I teach a number of courses at the department of psychology and neuroscience. Additionally, I currently supervise and coordinate diverse research projects in the area of human conscious and unconscious perception.
Born and raised in Italy, I have lived since 1995 in Denmark where I am married and mother of three children.
My premise is that every individual has unique resources and unique ways to perceive life and its challenges. As a psychologist, I focus on identifying the roots of frustrations and difficulties, and on motivating changes that can lead to improved psychological and emotional wellbeing.
Trust and open-mindedness will be the foundations of our therapeutic relation.
You can talk to me in English, Danish or Italian
