I am a senior trainee Core Process Psychotherapist with more than 9 years of experience working with mental health within the Social Care sector and as a practitioner of Naturopathy and Medical Herbalism. My interest in studying psychotherapy developed over many years of therapeutic practice alongside others, and my desire to understand more about myself and the people around me.

I am Greek by birth, perceiving the world and humans from an integrated point of view, as opposed to just looking at parts of it, or life events as being separate. The view that everything in the world is connected is ingrained in the culture I have been raised in, where I gain insights on the importance of the body and mind connection. I find the Greek guiding principle of “Know Thyself” that refers to “Know Yourself” very inspirational. This understanding led me to pursue a psychotherapy training that uses a psycho spiritual approach. I moved from Greece to Edinburgh back in 2013 and I have greatly enjoyed living here since.

I trained in Core Process Psychotherapy on a Master's degree level at the Karuna Institute in partnership with Middlesex University. I am a UKCP registered trainee Psychotherapist and I receive supervision regularly.

It is important for you to feel happy to work with the therapist of your choice, who will be there to listen how it is for you. We will book an initial appointment where we will have a general discussion on the concerns you would like to bring to therapy. I encourage you to listen to your feelings and reflect upon how I can meet your needs. We can then discuss a therapy schedule which suits you. In Core Process Psychotherapy the relationship between the therapist and the client is based on equality where as a therapist, I bring the skills needed for your exploration, and the encouragement when things get difficult. I believe that the journey towards clarity is a shared one, and I also believe that each individual is the only expert of their experience. In my understanding, the state of balance and health is inherent, and as such, it is a state that we can return to. I see the therapeutic relationship as a journey, where my therapeutic presence is a reminder that you are not alone. Sometimes the opportunity to share your feelings with another and have your experience acknowledged, is all that is needed. Core Process has its roots in Buddhist psychology and mindfulness practice. This understanding is merged with the Western theory of psychotherapy, to bring a unique awareness of body, mind and spirit to the therapeutic relationship.
