Dr. Valeria Risoli – Psychologist
As a licensed and experienced clinical psychologist, I offer psychological counseling, assessment, diagnosis and treatment plans for children, adolescents, families, and adults. My goal is to build, together with my clients, a positive, trusting and non-judgmental collaboration to help them look inside themselves, find awareness and their own strengths to overcome any fears and difficulties that may occur in their lives.
I was born and raised in Italy. I hold a Doctoral Degree in Clinical Psychology and a Post Graduate Specialization in Clinical Psychology and Person-Centered Counselling from the University of Parma, Italy.
I am licensed as a Clinical Psychologist in Italy (Albo Psicologi Emilia Romagna) and the U.A.E. (Dubai Health Authority).
I have worked with children and their families since 2005 and gained training and experience dealing with a variety of ages, cultures, ethnicities, conditions, and diagnoses. I have gained specialized experience offering psychological help to children and families for the Seychelles Children Foundation. I have been enriched both personally and professionally through assessing and training children and families at Dubai Centre for Special Needs.
I have been working at Dubai Physiotherapy & Family Medicine Clinic since 2012, offering psychological counseling and help to children and adults.
I adopt a cognitive behavioural approach within a person-centered relational framework and all intervention is tailored to each person based upon his unique and individual traits and needs.
I offer my service in both English and Italian.Make an Appointment
