About Anastasia Piatakhina Giré
I always felt fascinated by people’s stories. Perhaps it has to do with the diversity in my own story: born and raised in Saint Petersburg (Russia), living and studying in Italy, France, and Great Britain, before moving to Spain and recently to Paris.
These diverse experiences, and my multicultural marriage and bilingual family, make me sensitive to issues experienced by people living abroad, or those who are part of a mixed couple. An expat myself, I am passionate about addressing the challenges fellow travelers experience away from home and family.
I am a qualified Integrative Psychotherapist and hold the European Certificate in Integrative Psychotherapy and the European Certificate of Psychotherapy (ECP). I am now based in Paris where I offer long term and short term therapy. I practice in Russian, English, French and Italian: www.expatstherapy.com
I am currently doing my doctorate at Middlesex University, London. My research interests are evolving around clinical work with displaced individuals and practicing humanistic psychotherapy online.
