A few words from me

As a professional psychologist, hypnotherapist and biofeedback therapist, I have worked with a large number of people and collaborated with various institutions. My understanding of the term psychology and therapy is characterised by scientifically sound expertise and evidence-based intervention and support. Using specially designed software with corresponding devices that objectively and reliably measure the psychic effect on the body, all approaches provided in my practice lead to an accurate assessment of the problem and a controlled course of therapeutic or counselling intervention. One of the main purposes is the combination of psychology and therapy with modern technology. For this reason, I introduced corresponding equipment in Greece to provide the mental health professional with an additional tool for his work ( I created together with a foreign company the Verim lab software, which makes the accuracy of each intervention extremely accurate. Of major importance is psychoeducation. I believe and invest in my work in essence retraining functions of the individual or group that entrusts me, utilizing the latest development of science in this field. The philosophy underlying my work is that each personality is unique and therefore in need of individualized support. Every individual has endless potential and endless resources. I individually seek to mobilize these potentials and sources of energy with anyone who trusts me. In the context of cooperation, mutual respect is a prerequisite as it leads to a relationship of trust.
