My name is Elena Venuti, psychologist and psychotherapist. I was born in Udine in 1976, and I knew that I wanted to be a psychologist since I was a teenager. I was graduated in Padua in 2002 and after finishing my internship I came to Spain, to Granada, to do volunteer work.
When I moved to Barcelona I studied the Master in Conflict Management and Resolution at the University of Barcelona, which has allowed me to improve communication techniques and practice the tools of Systemic Psychology in the field of human relations.
For many years I have worked with children, teenagers and adults, being dedicated above all to education and social projects.
But I always wanted to be a psychotherapist and when I felt that I had grown as a person and had matured a lot of experience, I studied the Master in Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy at the University of Girona. In this way, I have been able to delve into psychotherapeutic theory and practice, through the teaching of classical psychoanalysis and the most contemporary currents of psychoanalytic psychotherapy. At the same time, I have started my path of personal analysis with a Didactic Psychotherapist from the Association of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy of Catalonia, with whom I continue to work, because, as S. Freud said: “Being totally honest with yourself is a good exercise”.
I consider the supervisory work and the process of self-knowledge as an integral part of the therapeutic profession, since I believe that only from authenticity and humility you can find the others and help them discover their truth.
Entering IPITIA has given me the opportunity to meet a team of highly prepared, open and motivated therapists. Every day I find this as a very enriching experience.
