I was raised in Athens and from an early age, I was fascinated by psychology. I completed my BSc (Hons) in Psychology at Middlesex University London and continued at the same University for my MSc in Health Psychology. Subsequently, I undertook an MSc in Occupational Psychology (achieved Commendation classification) at the University of Hertfordshire with a Master's dissertation focusing on the Psychological Contracts in the workplace. As a Ph.D. candidate in psychology at Kingston University London, I focused on male identity while I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens and at the Centre of Prevention and Counselling in Athens.
While in London I was employed for a number of years at N.H.S.P (East Ham) and worked with people suffering from psychosis (mainly schizophrenia), personality disorders, substance abuse, mood and anxiety disorders gaining valuable clinical experience.
In Greece I worked as a psychologist for the Greek Police at the Amygdaleza Detention Centre for Immigrants, the ''Ulysses'' Prevention Centre (Organisation Against Drugs ) and the Ministry of Education, Research and Religions. From 2016 until 2019 I worked as a psychologist and Mental Health Coordinator for the Greek Delegation of the Doctors of the World (Médecins du Monde) while today I am working for HumanRights360. I am a licensed psychologist in Greece (n. 14718/2011), a graduate member of the British Psychological Society and a member of the Association of Greek Psychologists.
My research interests focus mainly on the discrimination LGBT people face in the workplace. I also write psychological articles according to my research interests and training for various psychology websites and newspapers.
