A few words about me
My name is Zoi and I am a systemic therapist trained in the Integrative Model of Systemic Therapy. I offer therapy to English-speaking and Greek-speaking individuals, couples, families and groups in person and online. I have been living in Brussels since 2008 and I have been offering my services since 2018.
I have always been curious about and interested in human nature and relationships. I am fascinated with the way people perceive the world around them, interact, and relate with one another. Before I landed to psychology and psychotherapy, I embarked on an educational journey which consisted of studies in international and European affairs, translation, language sciences, theatre, and improvisation comedy. I travelled around the world, I learnt seven languages, and I took courses in mindfulness, meditation and energetic healing. I am a motivational public speaker and a writer. I am a certified systemic counsellor and an official member of the European Association for Counseling and the Hellenic Association of Counseling. I work and I live in a holistic way, that is, I combine academic achievements (University degrees), lifelong learning (seminars, trainings, congresses, conferences) and mindfulness to enrich my practice and be shaped as a person and as a therapist.
My specialization in the Integrative Model of Systemic Therapy makes room for a holistic approach in practising therapy. There is no fixed agenda. You introduce the topic you wish to process and we decide together what the best course of action for you is.As humans, we are multidimensional and have multifaceted personalities and talents. Therefore, there is no “one-size-fits-all” in therapy. To this end, my training in therapy has equipped me with a wide range of tools, techniques, theories and interventions which I tailor to your very personal needs and requests.
I am skilled at listening and concentrating on your own agenda, potential and strengths. We collaboratively decide on what suits you best and we accordingly plan the next steps for our sessions. I embrace diversity and my practice is informed about and friendly to groups of people vulnerable to exclusion (e.g. LGBTQI+, disability, migrants…).
The holistic approach that I practice sheds light into people’s unique personalities, stories and life situations. Therapy offers new insights on how to know ourselves better and relate with others so that relationships become a source of joy, inspiration and fulfillment.
