Michael Conti

I am a highly experienced, English-speaking psychotherapist and supervisor based in Copenhagen, offering face-to-face and online sessions. I work within the integrative approach as I believe that different people require different things at different times in their life. In my integrative work I draw upon different modalities. These include: Cognitive-Behavioural (CBT), Psychodynamic, Person-centred, Relational, Gestalt and Body psychotherapy. I offer sessions in English, Italian, French and Maltese. You can read more about the psychotherapy I offer in the page entitled: Therapy.

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.

Languages

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