Martin Gostentschnig works as a psychologist and psychotherapist since 2008 and therefore was one of the first Kink Aware Professionals in Austria. From the start, his cause was to accompany and support people with sexual preferences deviating from social norms and (the wish to live in) alternative relationship models, without pathologising them.
His fields of expertise as a Kink Aware Professional lie in the area of trauma therapy, non-normative relationship modelling and couple´s therapy as well as forging sexual identities. BDSM-topics are welcome in his practice.
In his work as a person-centered psychotherapist Martin Gostentschnig wants to offer a judgement-free space, where clients find room to better perceive and accept themselves and their needs as well as learn how to lead a happy life with fulfilled relationships and uninhibited emotions.
