I was born and brought up in Greece, where I acquired some of the skills that opened up new worlds for me: I learnt to read Ancient Greek, to speak English and French, to read music and play the piano.

Before doing a Ph.D. in Philosophy, I took a degree in Psychology. I trained and worked as a psychotherapist for children and adults, and I was member of the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Unit of the St-Sophia University hospital for Children in Athens, Greece.

I have lived and worked in Greece, France, the Czech Republic, and the UK. Although philosophy is a form of homesickness, as Heidegger liked to say, quoting Novalis, I have in the past few years found my home in London.
