My name is Anastasia Gkonti
I am a Greek licensed Psychologist (Aristotle University, Greece) and an Integrative/Humanistic Psychological Counsellor (PGDip, BACP & UKCP accredited course). Having lived in Spain, the UK, and now residing in Berlin, helps me empathise with the challenges faced by individuals from diverse socio-cultural backgrounds.
Previously, I worked for NGOs in Greece and at Bristol City Council's care homes for three years, where I supported children dealing with psychological trauma. These experiences have been invaluable for both my professional and personal development, providing me with a remarkable perspective that I can apply to my counselling work.
During my practice as a therapist in the UK (NAOS charity and private practice), I worked with individuals who experienced developmental and sexual trauma, anxiety, gender dysphoria, as well as those who wanted to better understand their sexuality, identity, and relationships.
My passion for counselling and therapy is deeply rooted in my desire to continuously learn about both myself and the world we live in. By staying socially informed, I aim to provide an inclusive and understanding space. I offer a humble and integrative approach to therapy, which means that I draw from various psychotherapeutic models, with a focus on psychodynamic and humanistic modality, to tailor my support specifically for you.
I believe in creating a safe and relational space where you can explore your thoughts, emotions, and experiences, without judgment. Together, we can work towards your personal growth and well-being. I look forward to embarking on this transformative journey with you.
