About Anastasia Goussios

I live and work in Adelaide, South Australia. For over three decades I have been supporting people in my role as a psychologist, eco-therapist, shamanic psychotherapist, teacher and facilitator. I draw wisdom from numerous influences which I have incorporated into my life and work.

I love variety, and feel blessed to have had an interesting and diverse career that has brought many opportunities to learn, travel and assist individuals, leaders and organisations.  My professional experience includes establishing my private practice, working with people in rural and remote towns, and the criminal justice system, speaking at conferences, and facilitating community women’s workshops. Compassion Fatigue Australia is another facet of what I do and is designed to support front-line organisations that provide services to the vulnerable.  It will offer you some more insight into my work.

Over time my focus has evolved into teaching what I love the most; women’s transformational work, the ways of the soul and finding our way back into right relationship with the more-than-human world and the land upon which we reside. For this reason, I have created Soul Praxis.

My Story

I am the first born of Greek migrants. My parents migrated to Australia in the 1950’s.  They came here to create a new life for themselves and recover from the hardships and ravages of the Second World War. 

When I was seven my parents left the religion of their ethnic heritage and joined a fundamentalist breakaway cult. Like other patriarchal religious sects, the demand was one of absolute obedience and control of one’s inner and outer life.  

Freedom and salvation disguised as a life-threatening illness visited me in my mid-thirties. My life now turned upside down. I was plunged into the abyss. What followed was a profound odyssey initiating me into the mysteries of the soul where I was never to be the same again.  I started to reflect on my life from an “I have nothing to lose” perspective and left no stone unturned in my pursuit to deeply know myself, and transform the way I lived my life. Years later it turned out that I was misdiagnosed. I regret nothing!

We know there are no coincidences. Right?  In the early days of the illness, I came upon a book on shamanism which is an earth-based spirituality. Even though I had never heard of shamanism, I was intrigued, and started to teach myself to journey.  From my first journey, I felt something ancient waking up inside of me, a deep remembrance and knowing. I had finally come home. I was thirsting for meaningful engagement with my soul and the earth. These practices were like cool water soaking into my parched psyche. The door to my own soul praxis opened over twenty years ago.  Since then, I have explored and incorporated many soul-making practices into my life and work.
