Somesh Valentino CurtiMy name is Somesh Valentino Curti, from Torino (Italy). I am an English and Italian speaking psychologist for expats in Amsterdam. Here you can read my biography.

I graduated from the University of Torino as a Clinical and Community Psychologist in 2005. For four years I worked as a psychologist for immigrants and addicts at a non-profit organization in Italy. In 2010 I worked as  counselor and meditation facilitator at Osho Meditation Resort (Pune, India) first and than at Osho Santorini Meditation & Therapy Center (Greece). In 2011 I moved to Amsterdam (NL) and I started working as therapist for expats. I am a member of NIP and Europsy and a certified Relationship and Sex Counselor.

The way I work with people is not only a result of my studies, training and working experience, but also of my experience as an expat, the people I met, the process I went through myself, and the joy, love and freedom I discovered in my heart!

I have also needed to be guided during difficult moments in my life. This experience gave me the possibility to get to know myself better, to become aware of my needs and of what I really want. What I achieved is now growing inside me. I take care of my achievements by watering and pruning them. They became beautiful plants, blooming. I’d like to share the flowers with you…
