One of my basic beliefs is that the client carries the solution to his problem/concern in himself. I often help him in the form of a guide or an companion to find the solution for him and to implement it in the best way
Being bicultural myself (German-Greek), born 1974, I studied in Germany and in Greece and completed various educational trainings and specializations. Through these trainings, I developed a great sensitivity to the problems of cultural origin and identity.
17 years of professional experience as a clinical psychologist and therapist in the areas of prevention, counselling, health promotion, treatment, research, and crisis intervention.
I work integrative, combining different methods from different psychotherapeutic schools, i.e. I use the psychotherapeutic methods and techniques that are most effective for the respective patient/client. Through various trainings I try to constantly expand and refine my therapeutic repertoire. My attitude dictates that the man or his self is far too complex and multifaceted to be adequately described and treated only through one theoretical system/paradigm.
