Clinical Child Psychologist
I graduated from the Department of Psychology, the University of Crete in 2001, with distinction. Afterward, I continued my studies to a postgraduate level. In 2005 I earned a master’s degree (MSc) in Clinical Psychology, Department of Psychology, the University of Crete with distinction. In 2006, I earned the MSc in Child & Adolescent Mental Health from the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College, London, with merit. Since then, I have been working in private practice as a clinical child psychologist with infants, children, adolescents, and their families. In 2014, I earned certification from the University of Manchester in assessing the quality of parent-child attachment. In the last three years, I organize and run parenting groups aimed to empower parents in their role and to support the development of parenting skills. Currently, I am conducting a Ph.D. thesis (Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) on attachment and its role in children’s’ adjustment after the diagnosis of chronic illness. I am also studying the development of babies through Infant Observation (School of Infant Mental Health, London). My special interests emphasize the importance of parent-child attachment and its effects on the psychological development of infants, children, and adolescents. I am a licensed psychologist and a member of the Hellenic Psychological Society.
