About me

I am Laura Fontanari, a licensed Psychologist and Doctor in Cognitive Neuroscience.  My professional goal is to help you live a fulfilled life, overcoming the challenges that life surprises you with. 

Through my extensive education and international experiences, I have gathered a wide knowledge of different psychological fields.

After the Master’s degree in Psychology, I got a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience from the International Doctorate School in Cognitive and Brain Sciences (CIMeC).
Through my journey, I have been a lecturer on Biological Psychology master’s courses at the University of Cosenza and the University of Trento and a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Trento and the University of Venice.
I carried out research projects at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour in Nijmegen, at the Department of General Psychology, University of Padua and at the National Research Council of Italy (Padua). 

Subsequently, I worked as a Psychologist for International Cooperation projects, supporting children and women from rural communities in Guatemala and the Philippines.

I moved to The Netherlands to run a co-founded startup in the Digital Health field,  intending to promote personal well-being, through effective, personalised stress management and burnout prevention. 

A few years ago, I started my practice, where I provide individual Counseling and Therapy for adults in English and Italian.
