My name is Cristiana Carta. I was born and grown up in Italy where I graduated in Clinical Psychology.


In 2011 I moved to Amsterdam which has become my second home. Here I went on developing myself and specialized as a licensed psychologist with the Master in Clinical Neuropsychology. Also I achieved my post-academic studies in Psychotherapie (CBT, EMDR, Schematherapy and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy).


In the last 21 years, since 2003, I have dedicated myself to training, clinical experience, clinical work and specializations in Clinical Neuropsychology, Clinical Psychology and Psychotherapy. I also have a medical training and work experience in the medical field, which I acquired at the Faculty of Medicine of the University of Genoa and at the San Martino Hospital in the same city.

As of Jan 2014 I’ve practiced as a Psychologist in Amsterdam, treating clients in different mental health-care settings.

In October 2018 I’ve decided to found Carta Coaching here in Amsterdam besides practicing as Psychologist.

From 2020 on my practice has been extended to Carta Coaching & Therapy, this way I can provide you with a broader variety of services such as: psychological care, psychosocial therapy and integrative psychotherapy.


My therapies are also partly refunded by the Dutch healthcare insurances and fully by the European healthcare insurances.


All sessions are available in 3 languages: Dutch, English and Italian.



What's my therapeutical and coaching-style about?


I easily make contact with people. Quite soon I notice which are your functioning sides in thinking, feeling and behaving, but also what’s blocking or sabotaging you. An open and direct no-nonsense attitude combined with an integrative approach characterizes my way to work.


My goal is to keep on challenging you and to guide you in developing your own strength. I accomplish this through an initial phase where we get to know each other and get used one to another, also I do apply experiential technics, give you assignments, behavioral experiments and feeedback. All of this with respect, solid professional skills and humor.


My broad experience as a psychologist combined with the application of several evidence-based technics help me in effectively guiding you towards reaching your goals.


Among others I apply these methods:


- Schema-focused therapy

- Sensorimotor Psychotherapy


- Insight-giving therapy

- Cognitive behavioral therapy

- Schema-focused coaching

- Experiential technics 

- Cognitive behavioral-oriented coaching

- Solutions-focused coaching

- Walking-coaching

- Assertiveness training

- Communication-skills training

In case of digital sessions, you’ll get a personal link to the meeting room prior to each session.

You can also find me in the official database of the Dutch insurance companies .


Also important is to bare in mind I have no contracts with the health-insurance companies and that I have no BIG registration that means that my treatments will not be reimbursed from your basic package of the health insurance.

Increasingly, employers and trade unions see the benefit of personal development for their staff. As a result, employees often have a coaching or education budget included in their CAO or their contract. This is a fixed amount which, in agreement with the employer, can be used every year for coaching or career counseling. Wondering if this also applies to you? Then contact your HR manager or take a look into your CAO.


Often Human Resources (HR) departments have a training or special budget at their disposal that can be spent on, among other things, coaching. Coaching is an effective way of personal and professional development and is often reimbursed by the employer.


For entrepreneurs, coaching is deductible from income, corporation and sales tax. Tax authorities do not describe everything equally extensively, so it is important to interpret the requirements yourself. Always check with your own accountant how the rules can be interpreted for your company.
