HI, I'M LOUIS WAUTERS
Born, raised and trained in Belgium, I decided to make the jump to live and work as an expat in Czech Republic. I am living in Prague, where I provide psychotherapeutic services in English and Dutch.
I am trained in both sexology and gestalt psychotherapy.
I do online and face-to-face sessions with individuals and couples.
I have 7 years of experiences in mental health services and sexology, of which 3 years as a psychotherapist.
My work as a therapist is regularly supervised with a supervisor and in cooperation with colleagues. I am accredited by the Czech Association for Psychotherapy (n°65784528) and by the European Association for Gestalt Therapy.
