Theoretical Approach:

Trained in Athens at the Hellenic Institute of Vegetotherapy and Character Analysis, basically in the Reichian Body Psychotherapy but also in contemporary body psychotherapy modalities.

Character Analysis, Vegetotherapy, Reichian and Biodynamic Massages and Gestalt psychotherapy, are the basis of my approach but also I use other techniques from different Body Psychotherapy Approaches, such as biodynamic, bioenergetics, and biosystemic.

Friendly, humanistic, empathetic, professional, and qualified, I bring into the therapy room, security and acceptance, so the clients to feel trust to open up themselves.

My background to Theatre, Drama and to Creative Arts [energy theatre founder and artistic director since 2001] is helpful when is needed with body exercises, role play, psychodrama, and improvisations.

Also, I coach performers and artists, transforming their blockages into creativity, inspiration and confidence.
