I received my main degree in Psychology from Panteion University, Greece, and my masters’ degrees in Clinical Psychology and Health Psychology from the University of Leiden, The Netherlands. I earned my PhD in Psychology at Panteion University, Greece.


As a researcher, I am interested in

understanding the aetiology and prevention of suicide and related behaviours in people with adverse childhood experiences, and severe mental health issues (depression, anxiety, OCD, PTSD), and developing new or refining existing treatment protocols for treating these or relevant mental health problems.


Clinically, I am passionate about the delivery of high quality care for those people who have mental health problems, including anxiety, depression, OCD and/or have survived childhood or other traumas. 


I am currently Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of South Wales where I teach behavioural models of psychopathology and research methods. I am the coordinator of the Behaviour Therapy Clinic at the University of South Wales for people who are presented with everyday psychological problems, including mixed anxieties, depression and related problems, low self-esteem, and modest self-management skills.
