Ms. Jessica Saliba Thorne is a Gestalt Psychotherapist at Willingness.
Jessica earned her Bachelor's degree in Psychology from the University of Malta. Soon after she began working in the mental health field, which set off an initial interest in psychotherapy. She completed her Master’s in Gestalt Psychotherapy. Through the course, she has had the opportunity to work with various psychological issues giving her the opportunity to explore her interests further. Jessica has since gained further experience in working with eating disorders, sexual assault and trauma.
Jessica is also interested in the link between bullying and the development of mental health issues, including psychological trauma. In 2021 Jessica started volunteering with bBrave Malta's only NGO which deals with bullying. She has been an active council member within the NGO since February 2022.
Given her interest in working with particular vulnerable groups, Jessica is a firm believer in developing the therapeutic relationship. She believes this builds enough ground from where an individual can start opening up safely. She excels at offering containment and support throughout this process. Jessica works primarily with adults, however, she also has experience working with children.
