I am a Greek Psychologist - Psychotherapist specialised in Cognitive Analytic Therapy and Relational Psychoanalysis. I work with individuals, adults and adolescents (+16yrs), experiencing a wide range of difficulties.

About

I am a Greek psychologist educated in the United Kingdom. My bachelor's degree was in Psychology acquired from the University of Coventry. I then moved to Liverpool where I studied Consciousness and Transpersonal Psychology on a Masters of Science level. I have completed two internships, one in the child psychiatric section of the public mental health centre of Peristeri, Athens and the second in the adult public mental health centre of Chalkida, Greece. Finally I completed a 2,5 years training in Cognitive Analytic Therapy and Relational Psychoanalysis programme in Athens, Greece. For the past 4 years I work at my private practice in the Centre of Athens where I treat individuals with a wide range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, OCD, trauma, dysfunctional relationships, psychosomatic illnesses, anger and those seeking to improve their lives through guided introspection and psychotherapy. I accept clients in my office or for online therapy!
