My name is Luna, I am the founder of Rise Psychology Hub.
I am a warm, empathetic, and down-to-earth psychologist and couples counsellor with a passion for holistic approaches to mental health and relationships.
I started my career as a psychologist after completing my Master's in Health and Clinical Psychology in 2012, at D'Annunzio University of Chieti–Pescara, Italy. I am a registered psychologist in Australia and a member of the Australian Psychological Society.
I have extensive experience in healthcare, academic, corporate environments and private practices where I’ve worked with individuals and couples from a plethora of backgrounds, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and cultures/nationalities, I have additionally integrated my practice with mindful and creative techniques.
"I am a curious, empathetic, and friendly individual with a passion for yoga, coffee, and travel. In my free time, I enjoy drawing & colouring in mandalas, listening to audiobooks, walking in nature, and staring at the ocean".
- Luna Fumagalli
I firmly believe in the importance of focussing on the whole person while providing support to individuals.
Each person has a different experience of mental health and the path to recovery, and I want to honour such differences. I do my best to constantly think creatively about mental health and be “real” to the clients that I’m lucky enough to work with.
I work with people who struggle with stress, anxiety, relationships, low mood, poor self-confidence, and career dissatisfaction. I also am passionate about helping individuals and opposite-sex/same-sex couples repair their bonds and improve their relationships.
I help clients develop skills and learn strategies to regain control over their lives, repair their relationships, overcome challenges and learn how to live a meaningful life, and enhance their own self-worth.

My professional practice draws on multiple therapeutic approaches including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and mindfulness techniques. I select strategies from these approaches depending on the clients’ needs and preferences. My methods also include working with Psychodynamic and Attachment theories.
I provide counselling services in both English and Italian. Having lived and travelled in many countries, I can confidently say that I am well-placed to understand the challenges that culture and life changes can have on individuals and couples.
Thank you for reading about me and the services I am so passionate about offering. It takes great courage to reach out and ask for help. I am committed to honouring that courage with quality counselling and genuine support to help you achieve your goals and thrive.
