"Change within ourselves and our context begins with the willingness to confront our internal and external realities with curiosity and compassion for ourselves and others."
Giovanna is a psychologist at OpenUp. Her sessions offer an informal and warm space to explore your personal experiences and circumstances with curiosity and openness. She combines elements of schema-focused therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy and mentalization-based therapy to facilitate deeper understanding and connection to yourself and your context.
To take care of her own mental health, Giovanna walks daily, using nature and music to regulate her emotions and energy and create space for self-reflection and connection to her needs.
Giovanna obtained her Master’s Degree in Clinical Psychology at Leiden University and has three years of experience as a psychologist. She works with a broad range of difficulties, including anxiety, stress and burnout, trauma and mood dysregulation.
Giovanna speaks English and Dutch.
