About me

I am a licensed Psychologist and a Dramatherapist. I have been working with individuals but also with groups. I studied phycology and dramatherapy in Greece but i continued my trainings abroad because i want to explore different therapeutic approaches.

In the last years of my professional practice i have been working into the therapeutic fields of relationships, social anxiety, depression, anorexia and trauma.

My main fields of research and studying, while working with patients through symbolization, stories, projection, role playing and other dramatherapy techniques, were psychodynamic theories and especially Carl Jung’s work. My last clinical training was on Trauma and Behavioural therapy (CBT) in Jerusalem at the Hebrew university and Metiv Psychotrauma Center. I also have a great interest in working with Mindfulness and Somatic experiencing.

My approach

Studying both psychology at Panteion university and theatre at Theatro Technis Karolos Koun in Greece, i have found myself into the path of dramatherapy and arts therapy. I was impressed and fascinated by the therapeutic effect of arts and mainly theatre and i started to gain interest in dramatherapy rituals during sessions.

After my training in dramatherapy, while traveling, i am interested in trauma and now i focus my clinical interests in the therapy of trauma through CBT. I work also with emotion regulation techniques, mindfulness techniques and somatic experiencing techniques. I want my clients to have many tools towards everyday life challenges.
