Michael Conti Psychotherapist coach supervisor Copenhagen

As a psychotherapist, supervisor and coach based in Copenhagen, I offer face-to-face and online psychotherapy, supervision and coaching sessions in English, Italian, French and Maltese. I also have a good understanding of Spanish.

In my work I adopt an integrative approach, drawing upon different approaches according to what is more relevant. These include: Cognitive-Behavioural (CBT), Psychodynamic, Person-centred, Relational, Gestalt and Body psychotherapy.

One of my areas of specialisation is working with trauma and other distressing or overwhelming experiences. As a trained trauma therapist I use EMDR therapy to help reduce the impact of these experiences in a way that they are no longer overwhelming.

Another area of specialisation is sex and sexuality. I am a trained somatic sex educator and I help clients deal with sexual difficulties or adopt a more positive sexuality through body practices; something that can be combined with psychotherapy. I am the founder of Orange Bodies where I run workshops in somatic sexuality.

I also facilitate workshops and training sessions on various subjects related to mental health, wellbeing and sexuality. Because of my experience in mental health services in large organisations I also offer consultancy work for organisations interested in putting their workers’ wellbeing in the forefront. If you are interested in organising workshops or training for a group or an organisation, or if you are interested in consultancy work in mental health, please get in touch with me.

Languages

I work in English, Maltese, Italian, or French. I also have a basic understanding of Spanish.
