Call Now


I am born and raised in Athens, Greece. I feel blessed to be able to do a job that I am very passionate and dedicated to do. The thing my clients claim they most like about me, is how warm and comfortable I help them feel, right from our first meeting. They appreciate how open minded, understanding, honest and straightforward I am. I am lively and energetic and I believe to have a very good sense of humour. I am not distant and just nodding, I can be a little protective and motherly at times, and I will self- disclose events from my own therapeutic journey whenever I see fits. I am flexible but I expect people to respect the boundaries we set and agree to from the beginning of our work. I use my expertise but I don't pretend to know everything. I learn a lot from my clients and for that I am always grateful!

My core approach to therapy is family systems theory. Furthermore, I have studied, personally tried and integrated to my work a number of other evidence - based therapeutic models which I extensively use, depending on the issues I’m treating. Here are some of the most common approaches I use: Mindfulness and Meditation Narrative Therapy Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Gestalt therapy The Gottman's Method for Couples Therapy Ether Perel's transformative approach and techniques for couples Emotionally-Focused Therapy (EFT)

I qualified as a psychotherapist in the year 2000 (Bachelor (BA) degree in Psychology, a Master's (MA) degree in Clinical Psychology and a Diploma (Dip) in Family Systems Therapy). I am a BACP registered member (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I adhere with the Associations' Ethical Frameworks. During those past 22 years, I have gained a lot of experience working with individuals, couples, groups and families. I have also participated and organised various seminars on work & life balance, as part of EAP (Employee Assistance Programs) for various organisations. ​Today the focus of my work is mainly on Individual and Couples therapy while every so often I organise seminars and workshops on relationship issues
