Counselor & Health Psychologist
Hi, I‘m Dino! I'm a registered psychologist (BPS) holding a B.A. with Honors in Psychology from Dublin City University and a M.Sc. in Psychology, specializing in Health Psychology from Ulster University, UK. I have training in solution-focused therapy (Iska Berlin) and I am currently in psychotherapy training at the European Institute for Reality Therapy.
I have more than 5 years of clinical, counseling and teaching/educational experience. My approach is primarily encouraging and supportive – addressing behavior change and psychological wellbeing, followed by solution-focused therapy, biopsychosocial elements and systemic counseling. The practice that I offer is safe, non-judgmental, diverse, and inclusive. I'm LGBTQIA + welcoming!
I previously worked at an International Primary School in Berlin as an Integration and Wellbeing Specialist where I gained in-depth knowledge about neurodiversity, cognitive, social and emotional lifespan development. My focus was psychosocial support with an empowering approach to children with additional behavioral, sensory and socio-emotional needs. I was one of the lead creators for getting the title of Schule der Vielfalt/School for Diversity at our primary school and one of the lead creators for transgender, non-binary and intersex primary school policy.
I specialize in: Acute Illness Counseling, Trauma, Eating disorders, Family issues, Gender Dysphoria, Transgender transition, Substance Abuse, Sexual Health, Phobias, LGBTQIA+, Parent consultations and Divorce-Related Stress.
I’m from Croatia and I speak English, Croatian, Bosnian and Serbian.
