Gabriella Calchi Novati, PhD

Psychoanalysis, Emotional Coaching, DReamwork

I am a psychoanalyst and cultural philosopher based in Zürich, Switzerland. My academic explorations and approach to psychoanalysis are inextricably linked. By working with and through art, I engage with the powerful effects that non-verbal expressions have on those who have encountered trauma in their lives, and the possibilities that personal creativity have for growth and realisation of the self.

I have been working in and through Jungian analysis for more than 20 years, and specialise in both verbal and non-verbal techniques. My private practice is located in the Seefeld district of Zürich, but I also see clients from around the world via tele-therapy (Zoom, Skype, WhatsApp, Facetime, etc.).
