I hold a Psychology degree from Pantion University of Social and Political Sciences (Athens) and a Doctorate degree in Counselling Psychology from Teesside University (UK).
I have worked within the National Health Service (NHS), in secondary and tertiary care services, in an affective disorders community mental health multidisciplinary team, in a specialist psychoanalytic service, in a school based counselling service and in charitable organisations in the UK, including a specialist domestic violence and abuse service.

My clinical experience includes work with people who experience depression, anxiety, phobias, panic, childhood or adult trauma, domestic violence, bullying, bereavement, relational difficulties, personality disorders, mood disorders (e.g. bipolar disorder), adjustment difficulties, self-harm and suicidal ideation, addictions, low self-esteem / lack of confidence, etc.
