Discover our mission

Psychotherapy Courses was founded in 2021 by Dr. Alessandro Carmelita, a pioneer of the innovative therapy method, Mindful Interbeing Mirror Therapy (MIMT). Having worked in the field of psychology and with clients for over 25 years, Dr. Carmelita recognised the importance of enriching and sharing knowledge. Determined to create a platform where mental health professionals can come together, expand in their practice and access the best resources, psycotherapycourses.com was born.

Our speakers are chosen by a board of international and expert advisors so that we can consistently provide a variety of events and video courses on topics at the very forefront of the neuroscientific and psychological research fields. We want therapists, counsellors and mental health professionals alike to remain inspired by their industry, equipped to handle the challenges of working with traumatised patients.

High quality videos & resources

A key characteristic of our video courses is the exceptional quality of materials from experts presenting novel therapeutic models and their application. Additionally, many of our on-demand courses address the importance of personal care and support, using established and researched techniques. For our Loyal Members we provide further resources including a monthly mindfulness practice, ensuring your cup is full before you pour from it. We have compiled this combination of expertise to create a resource like no other.

We have a deep motivation to make the world a better place. Caring for the environment is a cause close to our heart; supporting the growth and healing of the world is just as important as that of our patients. Being a body of psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors, social workers and clinicians, we recognise that the quality of environment we’re in contributes just as much as the people within it. We have partnered with Treedom to offset our carbon emissions, planting a tree with every course purchased. Take a look at our blossoming Mirror Forest here.

Over 100 speakers and thousands of customers

With over 100 speakers and thousands of customers globally, our community is rapidly growing (despite being only two years old!). We are so grateful for the support from the psychological community so far and are hopeful that we can continue contributing to the improvement of mental health for everyone.

Let's get to know each other better

Dr. Alessandro Carmelita

Psychologist and Psychotherapist, CEO
I speak English, Italian

I have always wanted to impact how people feel and their mental health. Since childhood, I have been a very sensitive and compassionate person who cares about how people feel and how the world is. As a teenager, I decided I wanted to be a psychologist. When I started seeing clients at the same time, I also started organising events to allow clinicians to train with the best Experts in the world without having to travel to other Countries.

I kept learning from the best Professionals and then I developed the Mindful Interbeing Mirror Therapy (Mirror Therapy) eleven years ago together with Marina Cirio.

Mr. Giuseppe S.

Team & IT Manager
I speak English, Italian, French, Spanish

Originally from the beautiful Sardinia, an Italian Island, I carry with me the passion and energy typical of my land. Committed and stubborn (as most Sardinians are), I started working at 17yo and soon after managed a Webagency working with Italian, Spanish and English clients.

With a background of purely technical education, I had the pleasure to meet Alessandro and commit full-time to combine my technical and organisational skills, to his vision of a great project with the goal of improving the world by sharing knowledge and helping thousands of people globally. It is a professional and personal satisfaction that is unparalleled.
In my spare time after work I like to unwind and take long walks with my two dogs. I also love to travel and I lived in several countries over the last 10 years, to finally return to the quiet Tunisia after a fancy, busy Dubai.

Ms. Ella T.

Psychologist, Staff
I speak English

Expanding the field of mental health to make it understandable and accessible to all is a life goal of mine. I enjoy reading up on the latest research in the field and connecting the dots between what I see around me and what I’ve learnt up to now. My interests were supported by my studies in psychology and biology at Newcastle University.

I am curious about energy flow and enjoy practicing tai chi. When I am not procrastinating this, I practice tai chi. When I am procrastinating this, going down a YouTube rabbit hole is one of my favourite pastimes.

Ms. Poppy S.

Psychologist, Staff
I speak English

Since discovering psychology during my A-levels, I have had a desire to work in clinical psychology to better understand and help people experiencing mental health issues. I completed a psychology degree at the University of Sheffield. I have also mentored vulnerable children, worked as a mental health support worker and have done a research project about social isolation.

Outside work I am interested in physical health; this is reflected in my enjoyment for cooking and exercise – I am a firm believer that finding balance is essential for our holistic well-being. I also like to think of myself as creative after having taught myself to crochet during lockdown (But who didn’t!).

Other members of our team are Giulia M, Eva M, Eleonora M, Filippo S, and other freelancer collaborators.
