Michael Conti

I am a highly experienced, English-speaking psychotherapist and supervisor based in Copenhagen, offering face-to-face and online sessions. I use different therapy modalities including Cognitive-Behavioural (CBT), Psychodynamic and Relational. I offer sessions in English, Italian and French.

I have two main specialisations: trauma and sexuality. As an EMDR therapist I help individuals deal with distressing or traumatic memories. I am also trained as a somatic sex educator. At times I offer the option of combining this with psychotherapy work to help clients better deal with sex, gender and sexuality issues. I am the founder of Orange Bodies where I run workshops and individual sessions in somatic sexuality.

Services

Psychotherapy

Are you’re currently struggling with some aspects of life or want to get to know yourself better? As a psychotherapist I offer a safe and confidential space to deal with these.

Supervision

Are you a psychotherapist or counsellor seeking supervision? I am specialised in offering clinical supervision to both individuals and groups.

EMDR & trauma

Have you experienced a traumatic event that is distressing you? EMDR therapy specifically addresses traumatic memories to reduce the distress they cause.

Sex & sexuality

Is your sexual life causing you difficulties on a personal level or in your relationships? Do you want to live a more positive and integrated sexuality? We can work through this together using different therapeutic approaches.
