About Sylvia Mouzourou
Sylvia started her apprenticeship with a professional energy healer and psychoanalyst in Cyprus in 1997. When she moved to NYC in 2004, she met her next teacher and started learning about Chakra energy healing. In 2009 she completed her MA in Counseling Psychology and has since worked as a clinical psychotherapist with children and adults. She simultaneously received her initiation as a Moon Priestess, an initiation that allowed her to deepen her understanding on ancient healing ways of the Sacred feminine. During this work and based on personal spiritual practice, Sylvia realized that the best way of therapeutic intervention is the holistic approach where body, mind and soul are addressed as a whole and unified in balance. In 2010 her quest led her to Energy Healing School where she completed two years of studies. Her love for Yoga and Meditation served as an inspiration to co-create an oasis, the Anthea Yoga & Healing Arts Center in Long Island City, New York, which has been blossoming since 2012. Sylvia left Anthea Yoga in July 2016. The Guided Healing (2016) is the distilled expression of these experiences and a way to offer this Light into the world. Sylvia’s keen intuition and gentle guidance is what makes this work special and effective. Among other things, Sylvia loves dance, photography and vegan cooking.
Sylvia’s own words regarding therapeutic treatments:
-I certainly appreciate Freud and his innovative at the time, understanding on human psyche. I do love Yung’s deep mysticism and profound writings on archetypes. Winnicott and his research on relational patterns are essential and I find Gestalt therapy to be a beautiful and necessary experiential element in psychosomatic treatment. But the picture was never quite complete until the body was included in the equation, when the practice of Yoga entered my life. The picture really started coming together when the Soul was included in an effort to understand the Soul and its sacredness. The picture really started shining when I found out about ancestral healing and plant medicine teachers and other ancient Earth based practices. This beautiful palette of experience is what I am aspiring to share with the world. With the many people who touched my life and I had the sacred opportunity to touch theirs.
