I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist with over fifteen years experience in private practice and in organisations. I have a doctorate in social anthropology from the University of Cambridge, which has furthered my interest in questions around cultural difference and diversity. The way I practise is eclectic, which means that although I mainly practise within the psychoanalytic tradition, I am open to other ideas and influences, especially those relating to questions around human subjectivity and existence.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have trained with the Philadelphia Associaiton in Hampstead. I have been UKCP registered since 2002. My clinical experience as a therapist has been at various settings such as a therapeutic commumity for those experiencing extreme mental distress, the charity sector and as part of a multi disciplinary team in a hospital. The core of my clinical work though has been in private practice since 2002. I have been teaching psychotherapy and supervising students at a number of universities in and around London I am currently a visiting lecturer of psychoanalytic psychotherapy at Regent's University.

I can offer psychotherapy in Greek and I am fluent in French.

I have a number of publications including three co-edited books.
