My focus is to listen to you and to help you find a way of developing understanding for the issues that concern you. I work mainly with a psychoanalytic/psychodynamic approach making clients aware that problems and distress in the present may have originated in their earlier life experiences. Understanding this is the first step towards achieving a change in awareness, perception and relationships.
If preferred, I can offer sessions in Greek and in French.
