With respect to professional experience and cultural skills, I have worked in the public sector, namely in the National Health Service (NHS), in Community Mental Health Teams, with adults presenting problems that reflected the full clinical severity. In Greece, I also engaged in private practice. I work mostly from the cognitive behaviour therapy perspective informed with person-centred principles conducting both individual and group therapy. I have also extensive experience working successfully with an ethnically diverse range of colleagues and clients, reflected in my practice both in Greece, the UK and in New Zealand.
I am a Registered Psychologist (Counselling) with the New Zealand Psychologists Board, a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, and an Associate Fellow of the British Psychological Society, as well as a Registered Practitioner Psychologist with the Health and Care Professions Council in the UK. My research interests have focused on Mental Health and Well-Being in youth, particularly on the theory and practice of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and in the associations between dysfunctional cognitive processing and psychopathology in youth, including diverse cultural groups, as well as in characteristics of adolescents who have attempted suicide.
Dysfunctional cognitive processing and psychopathology in youth; low intensity CBT interventions; adolescent suicide attempts; professional practice and ethics.
