Welcome to psicologoedimburgo.com
A service addressed to the Italians who live in Edinburgh and in Scotland
Italians who live abroad have to deal with several difficulties and one of these is the fact that they belong to a different linguistic background. Thus, finding an Italian psychologist or an Italian psychotherapist in Edinburgh (and more generally in Scotland) can offer a good opportunity to undertake therapy in your own native language, especially for a treatment which is entirely based on communication through words.
When we speak ‘another’ language we experience the foreignness of a language which is not ours, and we can struggle to say what we want and how we want it. The problem of being understood is central when we deal with psychological issues. In this case a word does not work like another, as well as all the shades and expressions we commonly use to express ourselves would not mean the same if translated.
In other words, this service takes into great account the fundamental bound between language and psyche and offers a therapeutic space addressed to the Italian community.
