Barbara Garofoli M.D.


Welcome to the website of Barbara Garofoli, M.D., independent psychiatrist-psychotherapist and psychoanalyst.

After graduating in Medicine and successfully passing the State Examination in order to practice as a Medical Doctor, I completed my training as a Psychiatrist in 1994.

Both trainings (Medicine and Psychiatry) have been accomplished at the Universita’ degli Studi di Padova (Italië), within the Facolta’ di Medicina e Chirurgia; at the same university I also completed the specialization as psychoanalytic psychotherapist.

Since January 1999 I have been recognized as an M.D. and psychiatrist by the Dutch Specialisten Registratie Commissie and am licensed to work as a psychiatrist and psychoanalytic psychotherapist in the Netherlands.

In December 2007 I completed my training as a psychoanalyst, with the Dutch Psychoanalytic Society (NVPA). I have been a member and a psychoanalyst of the International Psychoanalytic Association (IPA) since 2008.

At first in Italy and later in the Netherlands I worked for several psychiatric institutions, both in-patient and out-patient. I have also worked in my own private practice.
