We would like to welcome Electra Matsangou to our coworking community!
Electra is a Psychologist and Psychotherapist who arrived at Stone Soup in February. Electra pursued her bachelor’s degree from Aristotle University, Thessaloniki. She then went on the Erasmus exchange program to Nijmegan University in Netherlands. Having loved her six-month experience in Netherlands, Electra decided to pursue her master’s degree in Leiden university in the Netherlands, after which she did the first part of her training in Gestalt therapy at the NSG Foundation in Amsterdam and the second part at the Gestalt foundation in Athens.
Electra loves to travel, explore different cultures and talk to different people and she feels like stalling when she is in one place for too long. Therefore, Stone Soup provides an ideal setting to Electra as she gets to work with a variety of professionals from different fields and nationalities. With such interactions, “new ideas pop-up in my head and encourage me to be creative”. Electra also loves the energy and the work environment at Stone Soup as it is different from a usual workplace for psychologists.
At the moment, Electra is working on a project that will be targeting people with no access to psychotherapy and she aims to do so by establishing a network and providing seminars and training based on Gestalt psychotherapy and in some cases, offer free workshops and seminars to minority groups and to others in need.
