– Families                                                                        – Couples   

– Older People                                                                – Groups

CIP-UK provides face-to-face and online psychological services to Italian people across the UK.


CIP-UK wants to be a point of reference for the wider Italian community, offering a qualified psychological support in the native language.

Asking for help in the first language is a particularly easy way anytime people are experiencing psychological pain and struggling with life’s challenges and difficulties.

In according to studies, therapy is twice as effective in clients’ native language. The first language is more emotionally evocative than the second one, allowing people to express themselves more naturally, finding out new life directions in the shortest time.
