Elisabetta D’Agata, PhD


Elisabetta D’Agata is an expert psychologist in the field of scoliosis, strongly motivated in her work by her personal experience as a patient.

Born in Sicily, Italy, where she got her university degree in Psychology, she moved to Barcelona, Spain and has been living there for 13 years. This is where she completed her European PhD in Clinical and Health Psychology, studying the Quality of Life of Adolescents with Idiopathic Scoliosis (2011).

As a clinical psychologist and a European certified Specialist in Psychotherapy (EuroPsy), she trained in Somatic Psychotherapy (Biosynthesis). She has managed the Adolescent Scoliosis Group for emotional and body expression for 5 years and she has been working in her private practice (including patients with scoliosis) since 2011.

She enjoys giving classes in some important and specific educational programs (organized by ISICO, Scoliosis and Spine Online Learning, Vall d’Hebron Hospital, Private Centers of PTs). She also loves art, nature and traveling.


Elisabetta frequently performs counseling sessions over Skype for patients with scoliosis. If you would like more information or are interested in a session for you or your child, email her at [email protected]. Once her website, psychologyforscoliosis.com, is complete, she can also be contacted there.
