I, Dr. Melania Duca, am a registered and accredited Senior Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor insured to work in the United Kingdom and abroad. My approach to therapy is called Biocentric Psychoanalysis® or Biopsychoanalysis® which is a form of holistic therapy meaning that I base my selection of treatments and methods on an integrative model. I was trained to apply tools of cognitive (CBT), dialectical (DBT) and rational-emotive (REBT) behavioural therapy within a framework inspired by traditional psychoanalysis and led by the advancement and ultimate accomplishments of neurological science. Because of this, I often rely on technologies such as cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) devices and virtual reality exposure (VRET) combined with biofeedback equipment. I clocked up over 5000 hours of therapy provided to neurodivergent (such as ADHD & Asperger) and personality disordered patients; 68% of my work currently consists in the treatment and management of people and offenders affected by Emotionally Unstable Personality Disorder (EUPD), Borderline Type. I practise as a specialist in two medical clinics, based in Northern Ireland and Italy. I own a limited company and run a private business in the global healthcare sector. Since 2018 I have been teaching students how to become psychotherapists and apply the biopsychoanalytic model of therapeutic intervention to clinical practice.
