My experience as a counsellor and therapist is founded on years of professional education and training - and of course from working through my own share of life’s challenges! For over 25 years I have helped clients from all walks of life, bringing a broad and varied range of experience and understanding to my work.
My studies and qualifications include a degree in clinical psychology from Ohio State University, and an MS.ED from Northern Illinois University. I trained as a systemic family therapist at the Laboratory For The Study of Human Relations in Athens, Greece (an accredited EFTA-TIC centre for systemic and family therapy training) and qualified as a psychodynamic psychotherapist at Tavistock Relationships in London. I am also a certified NLP practitioner and hold a parenting certificate.
I continue to develop my professional training and personal development; I have been an educator for many years at the Hellenic American Foundation, and am a member of the BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) and the EFTA (European Family Therapy Association).
I look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with you, and accompanying you on your life-changing journey.
