Piera Briganti

EMDR Psychotherapist

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

Hi, I’m piera briganti
and I do the most rewarding job in the world:
I give back the smile to people
who suffer from bad experiences!

My Story

In my life I have suffered many tears. Together with my family I had to leave everything I knew and that made me feel safe, to rebuild a life in a different city, with different people. I lived that experience six times during the years. It was really hard, but today I can say that even from such difficult experiences can arise the opportunity for personal growth.

My life has led me to discover at an early stage the pain of emotional wounds, but also to develop an interest in the human mind.

This is why I chose to graduate in clinical psychology and become a psychotherapist.

I wanted to teach people how to stop suffering.

But it was not a simple or linear path, precisely because of the “marks” that my past experiences had left on me. Study and fatigue never discouraged me, because what I studied was my passion, but emotional wounds continued to “bleed” from time to time, slowing my path and making me face so many obstacles.

In the end, after discovering EMDR during my residency, I felt that it was time to take care of myself once and for all, and I entrusted myself to a solid, scientific, safe therapy.

Thanks to EMDR, I was finally able to feel complete at peace with myself and with the rest of the world. So after specialization I decided to take the EMDR training myself, with the EMDR Association for Italy and become an EMDR therapist.

Since a few years I decided to live a life and work experience abroad, in the Canary Islands.

Here I receive patients in my private practice, working with Italians, english speaking and spanish speaking who live on the beautiful island of Lanzarote, but I also believe very much in the potentialities of EMDR online, so I also work with patients who call me from different countries around the world.

My values

Science at the service of health

As a professional, I prefer to practice evidence-based therapeutic approaches, because psychotherapists face a huge ethical responsibility. This is why I fight against the spread of “pseudotherapies” and all those approaches that have not been validatet by solid scientific research.

Constant updating

We have the health of the population in our hands, and that is why it is our duty to keep abreast of new discoveries, studies and new applications of therapies.

The therapeutic relationship

The pragmatic and scientific character of EMDR does not make it a sterile or impersonal treatment, on the contrary. When the key memories of a patient’s existence are brought to light, empathy and respect for suffering are essential healing tools.
