About Me

I am a UK qualified and HCPC Registered Dramatherapist with over ten years’ experience of working creatively with children, young people and adults across the globe. Originally from a small Greek island but having grown up in England, my professional life has been mainly based in London, however my passion for travel has allowed me to live and work within various cultural communities, including South East Asia and Aboriginal Australia (and now Lisbon!). Experiencing such diversity has widened my understanding and appreciation for the individuality and uniqueness of every human being. I believe that creative expression can empower people in the process of their own development and healing.

I have worked as a Dramatherapist with both children and adults, providing sessions in schools, the community, psychiatric wards, and now online. My work is client-led, meaning that what happens in a session depends on the specific issues each individual brings and we will work together to find the most appropriate approach. A combination of my theoretical psychological understanding along with my experience in healing through creative-arts, forms an integrative therapy-style. At the heart of my practice is an awareness that the therapeutic relationship is paramount to aid healing and change.
