A JOURNEY OF GROWTH
Connect with Yourself and Others
In-person group (Gràcia, Barcelona)
This personal growth group is for you if you’re on a journey to explore more who you are and how you connect to the world around you. It’s a space for transformation: you bring your curiosity and your courage; we provide you with a safe and supportive environment to facilitate the process.
During our meeting, we will propose activities to help you deepen your personal awareness and nourish personal transformation. Other activities will focus on exploring a more authentic way of connecting with others. The activities we use vary and include techniques such as meditation, body awareness, sharing circles and other group dynamics. And because this is a space for you to develop new, meaningful friendships, we will spend the last 15 minutes socialising and sharing some snacks!
We offer a space that is open to all and inclusive of all genders, sexualities, races, religions, bodies and other backgrounds or characteristics. What we ask of you is to come with an attitude of respect and openness and to be at least 18 years old.
A series of online courses aimed at helping you live better with yourself by getting to know yourself better and become more embodied in your personal growth.
The series of courses consists of:
- My body as anchor when dealing with stress
- Balancing out my thoughts and my emotions
- Engaging with my fear and anger
- Shame, guilt and our shadow sides
- Our inner critical voice and ‘should’ statements
- Safety, vulnerability and our quest for control
The series of courses compliments the self-development journaling book entitled “Living Better with Yourself – A Practical Guide to Embodied Growth” written by ourselves and described below.
Author: Michael Conti
Embark on a journey of embodied self-development that enables you to live better with yourself. This is an opportunity for you to better integrate your mind, body, emotions and behaviour, while using your body as a primary way for bringing about change within yourself. This book integrates different psychological and body approaches to increase your awareness of how you currently experience your life, offering you the opportunity to better understand how your past has impacted your own development and providing you with tools to further your personal growth. It is also a great resource for accompanying others in their personal growth.
Sex-positive and LGBTQIA+ friendly
I am a highly-experienced, accredited psychotherapist and supervisor as well as an ICF-trained coach offering online sessions primarily in English and Maltese. I also have a very good understanding of Italian and French so it is possible for you to express yourself in your mother tongue if you prefer. I work with individuals as well as with couples or other relationship groups. I am also a trauma therapist trained in using EMDR therapy and use mindfulness as one of the practices for self-regulation.
Areas I work with include:
- Stress, anxiety and depression
- Anger management
- Trauma and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
- Sex and sexuality
- LGBTQIA+ and gender identity
- Personal growth and development
- Shame and guilt
- Self-esteem and confidence
One of my main areas of specialisation consists of working with trauma. I am a trauma therapist trained in EMDR therapy and I help individuals deal with traumatic or overwhelming events. My experience with trauma includes being an assistant director of the Counselling and Trauma Service at the London Fire Brigade.
I adopt a sex-positive and LGBTQIA+ friendly approach and I work with people around issues of sex, sexuality and body. I have done additional training in issues around sexuality and I have worked with people of different sexual and gender identities and sexual practices. I am also a Somatic Sexuality Specialist, where I primarily use the body to work through body or sexual difficulties and enable a better connection to one’s body, pleasure and one’s erotic energy. I am the founder of Orange Bodies where I run workshops in embodiment and sexuality.
I am an ICF-qualified Coach and I offer coaching to both private individuals and small-to-medium-sized businesses. Click here for more information about what I offer in terms of coaching.
As a certified Mindfulness Teacher, I offer mindfulness sessions for individuals and groups. You can read more about what I offer in terms of mindfulness here.
Furthermore, I organise and deliver workshops and training to groups or organisations on matters related to wellbeing, mental health and sexuality. I also offer consultancy to organisations that are interested in putting their workers’ wellbeing in the forefront. Click here for more information about this.
