'The only thing of which one can be guilty is of having given ground relative to one's desire'

Jacques Lacan, 1960 

Biographical note

I have studied psychology in Athens (Department of Psychology, Panteion University) and London (MSc Applied Psychology, Brunel University) where I also completed my doctoral studies in psychoanalysis (PhD, Middlesex University).

The subject of my thesis was the conceptualization and treatment of schizophrenia in Lacanian psychoanalysis, in the light of the later Lacanian clinic of the 'sinthome'.

 

My psychoanalytic training took place in the settings of the Instituted of the Freudian Field/ Lacanian Orientation, at the Athens College of Clinical Studies, where I attend the program of psychoanalytic studies since 2007. 

 

I have worked as a clinician in a number of statutory and private settings in Greece and the UK, with a wide range of populations with symptoms of anxiety, psychiatric disorders, autistic spectrum disorders, and other difficulties, like cerebral palsy and special educational needs. I have also worked in private practice as a psychotherapist in Athens and London.

 

Since 2014, I teach in higher education, in undergraduate and postgraduate programs in psychology, psychotherapy, counselling and psychosocial studies, where I also supervise trainees' clinical and counselling practice, as well as their dissertations.

 

I have also written a book and articles in Greek, English- and French-speaking publications about mental illness and its treatment, some of which can be found in the 'Publications' section of this website.
