mood disorders (such as depression and anxiety) and complex post traumatic
disorder and somatic symptom disorders. Dr Ettore Guaia works collaboratively
with young people and their families to undertake a comprehensive assessment of
their needs and in treatment planning. Dt Ettore Guaia is well versed in

Ettore’s main therapeutic approach uses both a solution focussed model and
cognitive behavioural ideas.
