Born in Rethymno Crete in 1981, I spent a large portion of my youth in Lancaster, England, where I graduated from Lancaster Royal Grammar School. I continued my higher education at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki where I graduated from the Department of Psychology in 2005, and went on to do clinical work at the ARSIS Youth Center in Thessaloniki, helping children and teenagers from deprived and traumatic backgrounds.
From 2006 I continued my professional activity in Istanbul, Turkey where I worked as a counsellor and teacher for both the staff and students in international educational institutions such as ‘Dogus University’, Sezin College and Irmak Schools.
I continued my training and education with a Masters in Linguistics from Walton Hall Open University in Milton Keynes, England in 2014. In 2015 I decided to focus further on the study and healing of Chronic Pain as I myself suffered from Chronic Pelvic Pain from 2015-2019 and finished training from the NLP institute in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Chronic Pain. This was then further supported with training in Hypnotherapy using the Rapid Transformational Therapy from the RTT school.
In 2015, and during a very stressful period of change, I was diagnosed with Chronic Pelvic Pain. This was a life changing experience for me, as I directed all my energy and interest in better understanding and developing methods to better deal with chronic pain on a daily basis. It also helped shape my further education and outlook, as I became aware that it is necessary to deal with any condition from a holistic perspective, taking into account the needs and environment of every patient. I have personal interest in helping any and all sufferers of Chronic Pain as I believe that it is possible to improve the overall quality of life with the right training and counselling.
Ι believe that every client’s needs are as unique as the client themselves and that anyone, no matter their background or medical history, deserves a better quality of life.
