Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist


Dorothy Scicluna is a Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist. She studied French and Psychology at Bachelor Degree level at the University of Malta (1994) then proceeded with a specialization in Clinical Psychology at the University of Padova, Italy (2000) with a special focus on the cultural aspect of eating disorders and obesity. In Malta she furthered her studies by taking up Gestalt Psychotherapy (2005). She has created local awareness about eating disorders and obesity and designed and developed several therapeutic programmes for anorexia nervosa and childhood obesity using an integrative approach. The integration of the behavioural and the humanistic view of eating disorders is a central theme during her lecturing material at the University of Malta. She holds a particular interest in wellness and runs several lifestyle modification group and individual programmes. Her research focuses on the cultural aspect of eating disorders, the understanding and frequency rates of binge-eating disorder in Malta, childhood obesity and on the personality of the anorexia nervosa sufferer in view of better therapy outcome. Finally she believes that people need to tell their tales and it is through the narration of these tales that healing is achieved – this is the work of psychotherapy.
