Hello everyone! I specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, offering support to expats, students, and LGBTQIA+ community members tackling anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and substance abuse challenges.
Hey there, I'm Traianos, originally from Greece but settled in the Netherlands and I am a psychologist. My academic and professional journey has pretty much revolved around the world of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which I've found to be a great, evidence based tool for sparking positive change.
My professional experiences in the Netherlands and Thailand, have offered me the privilege of working with a diverse group of people like expats, international students, and LGBTQIA+ community members from all around the world. They taught me something important: the value of acknowledging and respecting different cultures and perspectives in order to create strong therapeutic connections. I hold these values very close to my heart.
I've had the opportunity to work with different organizations, including a private practice in Amsterdam, Utrecht University, and a rehabilitation clinic where I've gained experience in dealing with various mental health issues like depression, anxiety, substance abuse, self-esteem, perfectionism, procrastination and relationship difficulties to name a few.
In my approach, CBT serves as the primary technique, complemented by mindfulness and solution-focused therapy elements. However, I understand that every person's path is distinct. Hence, each session I conduct is tailored to suit the particular requirements and objectives of the individual I'm assisting.
As a professional, I'm a firm believer in the life-changing effects of therapy. My goal is to help people unlock their full potential and live their best lives.
