About Anastasia – Hello! My name is Anastasia Mosiou, and I am an expat psychologist coming from Greece. The idea of becoming a psychologist occurred early in my life when I realized my passion for supporting people around me and my sensitivity to individuals who face psychological difficulties. My career in psychology began by pursuing a bachelor’s in psychology at the University of Crete. After completing my bachelor’s studies, getting experience as an intern, volunteer and, finally, certified psychologist, I decided to do my master’s in Clinical Psychology at Leiden University. Since August 2021, I have been living in the Netherlands, aiming to build a career as a psychologist-therapist and support the international and expatriate community.
Being an expat myself, I can relate to the difficulties experienced by people living in a foreign country. Thus, as a psychologist, I am here to support everyone who feels lonely, anxious, depressed, stuck, homesick etc. For me, psychotherapy is creating a safe, compassionate and non-judgmental space for the individual to share, express, acquire new skills and grow.
Having been trained in Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), I usually adopt a more person-centred approach in my practice. However, I individualize each treatment by integrating elements from other approaches, such as Cognitive and Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). Besides, the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important keys to the client’s change. Therefore, I aim to build strong, empathetic connections with clients characterized by genuineness, trust, compassion, and unconditional acceptance.
