Since I was a teenager, I was curious about emotions and behaviour and their impact on our relationships. This curiosity later became my motive to study Psychology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece. Following the completion of my BSc in Psychology, I continued my studies and obtained a Doctorate in Counselling Psychology, at Glasgow Caledonian University in Scotland. My research thesis was on anorexia nervosa.
My special interest in eating disorders led me to obtain a Masters Practitioner degree in Eating Disorders from the National Centre for Eating Disorders in London (approved by the Royal College of Psychiatrists and British Psychological Society). I am a licenced Counselling Psychologist (registration number 241) and a member of the Cyprus Psychologists Association and of the British Psychological Society.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you prescribe medicine?
No, psychologists do not prescribe medicine. If you are experiencing difficulties which interfere with your daily life you might need to contact a psychiatrist. In many cases pharmacotherapy in combination with psychological therapy proved to be beneficial.
What is the duration of therapy?
The duration of therapy will be determined by a number of factors such as the presenting issue, its severity and if the issue is chronic or recent. Therefore, some individuals might follow a short form of therapy and other individuals a long-term form of therapy.
Is therapy confidential
Any information you discuss with your psychologist is strictly confidential. However, there can be certain legal exceptions where the psychologist is obliged by the law and ethics to break the confidentiality agreement.
