Shirley Buttigieg

Ψ Gestalt Psychotherapist

Gestalt Psychotherapist B.Psy (Hons.); M.Psych (Gestalt)

PPBM Warrant No. 114

Speaks:English, Maltese

Shirley has obtained a Bachelor of Psychology from the University of Malta and a Master’s degree in Gestalt Psychotherapy from the Gestalt Psychotherapy Training Institute of Malta. She has been practicing psychotherapy for almost ten years and through her lived experience as a long-term partner, parent (and ‘student’) of two teens, as well as the child of aging parents, Shirley enjoys working with youth and adults across all ages. 

She is calm, yet challenging, and her sensitive nature provides a soothing presence for individuals who struggle to make meaning in today’s quick changing world and its uncertainties.

Shirley believes in each person’s inherent goodness and potential, and is intent on helping clients reconnect with their true self, discover their unique gifts and purpose, and in turn create a positive difference in the world around them.


Book a session with Shirley Buttigieg

I delight in and treasure the simple joys of life such as reading a good book in the sun, getting creative in the kitchen, being in nature and in touch with its wisdom, watching movies, good company and stimulating conversations. I’m also an avid learner, passionate about personal growth and the power of lifelong learning. I firmly believe in the African proverb: “If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together” and invite you to invest in and take responsibility for your well-being by embarking on the unique journey that is therapy.

Exceptions will be made if the original therapist is unable to see the client or family and the couple or family are referred to another therapist. After referral, the same conditions will apply.

Any sessions not utilised within this period will be lost. This means that a refund will not be given for unused sessions. Start date commences on date of purchase of bundles.
