Care and aftercare in your native language

When moving to Italy for your work, your passion, or your family, you may feel isolated, far from family and friends, and have little support to draw upon. 

The emotional impact of life abroad – on yourself, your partner, children, or parents – may become a heavy weight to carry on your own. 

You now need someone who understands you, someone who has worked with other international patients, who has experience with adjustment issues, cultural shock, and other common mental health issues that may be troubling you.

DoctorsinItaly helps you find great psychologists and therapists near you, guaranteed to speak fluent English.

I need to find a therapist near me now, can you help?

DoctorsinItaly  is a very fast way to get an appointment 7 days a week, at a doctor’s office or for a home visit. Your request will reach all therapists/counselors nearby within minutes. Available and suitable providers will offer a time for an appointment, so you can pick the first option. If you or someone close to you has an urgent need, is in a mental health crisis, or for other issues that cannot wait for a regular appointment, go to the closest hospital near you, or call 118 or 112 for emergency psychiatric help. These public numbers are fit to manage an emergency and will provide assistance and send an ambulance if needed.  How Doctorsintaly works >

How much will the appointment with a psychologist cost me?

Each psychologist decides the fees to charge, so prices vary depending on who you choose to see. You will know all the prices before booking, so you can select one that is reasonable to you. Generally the cost of a therapy session in Italy goes from about 50 euro up to 150 euro approximately. Doctors in Italy prices >

Can I see a female/male psychologist?

Yes, you choose your doctor. You will know before booking what options are available, so you can select a female or male psychologist, if this matters to you. Find out more about how it works >

Can any psychologist help my child ?

If your son or daughter needs to see a psychologist, make sure to specify their age. Not all therapists see children or adolescents regularly, so you would want only providers who can certainly help to offer an appointment. Psychologists will read your request and will only offer an appointment if they have experience with your child’s age, saving you time and money.

Will I get a prescription?

No, psychotherapists are not medical doctors and cannot issue prescriptions. For a pharmacological treatment see a psychiatrist instead.

When and where are therapists available?

DoctorsinItaly operates 24/7, so you can always send a request. When you send a request through the website, psychologists near you receive it instantly on their mobile phone. You will get their responses as soon as they can reply, so you can choose the time you prefer. Although there is no guarantee that there is a therapist on call, there is a good chance someone will be able to see you. On the platform you can find a great therapist in Rome, in Florence, in Torino, in Palermo, and many other locations throughout Italy.

Can I have an online session for therapy via Skype?

Yes, of course but no need to use Skype. Our proprietary platforms allows safe online consultations. Make a request on our website and answer “Online” to the question “Where do you want to see the doctor”. Many certified therapists, counselors and psychologists are available also for online talk therapy. Although none of them can prescribe medication, if need be they will be able to refer you to a local doctor for this purpose. If this is your preference or if you cannot find a therapist in your area, send a request for an online session. You will receive available times and prices and can choose the provider you prefer.

Psychiatrist vs Therapist. What is the difference in Italy?

The main difference between a psychiatrist and a psychotherapist is that the psychiatrist can prescribe medications. Although psychiatrists and psychotherapists often treat the same conditions, their approach may be different. For severe cases which do not benefit sufficiently from psychotherapy, a psychiatrist is likely to be more helpful. If you are interested only in talking therapy, a psychotherapist is possibly a better fit.
