Felipe – Psychotherapist under Supervision
Points of focus:
Born in Brazil in 1998, I moved around every two years of my life, leading me to experience many ways of being, understanding people with different values and backgrounds.
My journey into psychotherapeutic work was very explorative and is very strongly linked to the phenomenological philosophy.
I've written several theses on identity and this topic is central in my therapeutic work, specialising in gender queerness and transculturalism. This has also given me the opportunity to lead workshops on phenomenology and conduct research on non-binary gender identities.
Other work and internship experiences include work at refugee centres in Vienna (Ute Bock Haus, Volkshilfe Wien), and work with homelessness & drug addiction in the streets of São Paulo (Associação Pró-Saúde Mental), as well as work as a psychotherapist under supervision in the Sigmund Freud University Clinic since early 2021.
I am currently employed half time in the Volkshilfe Wien for intercultural advisory & social work.
