I grew up in Greece in a family of academics and diplomats and had an immediate affinity for Choirs, Musicals and Opera. I have been on stage since the age of 6, but it wasn't until later when I realized that the integral element of my personal growth did not lie in the music or the applause, but in the coming together of talented, creative individuals and their personal and collective transformation through the artistic process that made these projects valuable and irreplaceable.
I was trained as a clinical psychologist at the Aristotle University in Greece while studying classical singing at the Conservatory of Contemporary Music. My dissertation encompassed Mental Techniques that were being examined at the time in regards to battling Depression and Memory Loss for institutionalized individuals in nursing homes and prisons. After successfully graduating both disciplines, I was invited to continue my studies as a member of the Young Artist Program of the Maryland State University, USA, receiving my Masters in Opera Performance. Unable to still the impetus for further academic advancement, I read for a Doctorate in Vocal Performance at the same University, researching and performing works on the subject of Children by 25 composers in eleven different languages.
Upon my return to Europe, I relocated to Berlin / Germany, where I furthered my quest for a holistic approach to the human condition. My aspiration was to combine Psychology and Music and develop my own method of relieving fears of exposure, building core trust and integrity of choice.
I completed my NLP Master's Practitioner (Neurolinguistic Programming) in the IKS Institute of Berlin in 2011 and immediately went on to becoming a clinical Hypnotherapist and EMDR Specialist at Centre de Thérapie Brève in Belgium.
Since then I have been instructing workshops on Performance-, Test- and Public Speaking Anxiety and have been teaching Masterclasses in 5 languages in many European Universities, Colleges, Academies and Theatre Companies, as well as in the Management Sector. *(For more details, please go to the Reviews). I have been actively coaching individual clients that are eager to live meaningful lives, enjoy successful careers, overcome personal hurdles and expand their self-awareness.
I am still deeply moved by compassionate people.
