About Carmela Circelli

I have been practicing psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapy for the past 16 years. I am a graduate of the Center for Training in Psychotherapy in Toronto. I came to the practice of psychotherapy from an academic background and have continued to teach for the Philosophy Department at York University. My therapy practice is conducted mainly in English but I have also done work in French and Italian.

Language I work in: English, French and Italian

Challenges you might be facing

I am willing to work with any issues other than severe mental disturbances. Most of my practice and experience has been in the areas of:

What happens in a therapy session

Psychoanalysis has been called the ‘talking cure’. And that is how I view therapy—as a conversation—with the potential to increase awareness of the roots of one’s problems. In so doing psychotherapy can open up the possibility for greater freedom. Therapy is based on the technique of ‘free association’ or expressing whatever comes to mind. In our sessions we work with dream interpretation, writing, art, movement—any form of expression that suits you, and that can be integrated into the conversational experience.

Getting Started

You can generally contact me by e-mail or phone. I offer an initial half-hour, no-charge consultation.
