Psychotherapy Leiden

I'm currently unavailable.
Please contact another counsellor on this website.

I am a registered psychotherapist and the last years I have been working with expats in different mental health organisations in the Netherlands. Therapy is possible in Greek, English and Dutch. 

Adjustment and integration into a new country can be challenging, especially if someone is dealing with past unresolved issues. If you feel stagnated in life, it might be an indication that you need to find a new balance.

Through a therapeutic process you can get helped to transform psychological pain into psychic growth. Along with the reduction of (sometimes long lasting) symptoms your resilience can be increased and your personality can furhter develop. 

You can start therapy with me if you are dealing with difficulties related to the following:
Adjustment and integration into a new country, depression, grief, anxiety, trauma, long lasting difficulties in relationships, self-image and identity, life changes, sexuality and lgbt issues.


About me

I studied psychology in Greece (Panteion University) and completed a MSc in the Netherlands (Leiden University) and a postgraduate training in psychoanalytic psychotherapy in Belgium (KU Leuven).


In addition to long-term psychoanalytic psychotherapy I am trained in Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT), Dynamic Interpersonal Therapy (DIT), Traumatherapy (EMDR) and in client centered psychotherapy. For the past few years I have been working with adult expats and immigrants in Dutch mental health care organisations.

If you want to know more or make an appointment, feel free to contact me.


Online therapy

It is possible to have therapy online. However two or more face to face sessions are necessary to see which is the most suitable therapy setting for you (mixed face to face and online, only online or only face to face).

Psychotherapy is covered by the insurance companies.
