HERE'S WHERE IT BEGAN:
I was fascinated with the mind and human psychology from a very young age, and at 18 I began my deep self-discovery journey with group therapy. I dedicated many years to this program where I was working on every aspect of my life including, of course, unhealthy family dynamics. Like many of us, I didn't grow up in psychologically healthy home. Difficult childhood environment often pushes people to grow, expand and strive for the better, and so it did for me - my motivation for "figuring it all out" never ceased to exist. I am glad that I started my journey with group therapy, where I've seen practical Psychology and Psychoanalysis at work, not just theory which we learn in universities. Later on in life I did, of course, obtain Diploma in Psychology, but by that time I already practically learned how complex we all are and the importance of deep individual approach.
In 13 years in this field I attended every coaching / psychology / self development program that I could get my hands on. I always had this natural drive to learn about our human mind. What can be more fascinating? Absolutely nothing! I craved to learn how it works and what makes us all who we are. It was an obsession, an obsession with knowledge. I was that kind of student who would travel the world for the next training, leave the classroom the last and attend the same seminars multiple times to get the most out of it. If I was not in the class - I would read, if I didn't read - I would listen to a podcast. The word "obsession" is not an exaggeration :)
THE MOMENT THAT WILL EVENTUALLY MARK MY LIFE AS "BEFORE AND AFTER",
but first I need to tell you the pre-story...
There was a period in my life where I felt a huge need for more nature and alone time. I started spending a lot of my days alone on the beach or hiking, I started practicing meditation, and also I felt the need to minimize animal products in my diet.
Around that time I immersed myself into completing the training in hypnotherapy and thought that I finally found my professional niche. The last stages of this program were spiritual / metaphysical studies, which made me extremely uncomfortable. I always prided myself on having an evidence-based mentality and logical approach to life. Even though I always thought of myself as a very open minded person, it was almost painful for my brain to digest all the new metaphysical perspectives given on the training. I even thought to quit the last level of the program after already completing the first 4 stages and investing so much time, money and effort. Apparently life has had different plans for me: I was offered scholarship to complete the training and continued diving into spirituality, energy work and metaphysical studies.
Relentless work on my self, craving for understanding our human consciousness, a lot of nature in my life, a lot of alone contemplating time, a lot of meditation, a lot of time spent under hypnosis, following plant-based diet, and being acquainted with radical (for me at that time) spiritual and metaphysical perspectives on life -
- all of that heightened my sensitivity and created a build up in my psyche that led to opening up my psychic perceptions.
Later on it got even crazier. I started channelling information that I couldn’t have any previous knowledge of. I started to experience lucid dreaming and out of body phenomena. I would see, feel and know things that others wouldn't. I received visions of the future in my meditations and other experiences that are hard to put into words.
I was so extremely sensitive that living in an overpopulated country like Hong Kong made me feel overwhelmed by the amount of hectic energy. That’s when I decided to visit a monastery in Thailand where my psychic gifts could steadily progress. Thanks to such natural and calm environment I could meditate and embrace spiritual dimensions in silence.
As much as this can sound mesmerizing, it also came with downsides. Balancing between my real life and this new spiritual journey proved to be too much for me to handle. I eventually had to end my 8 years career of international modeling, moved to the country side of Greece and dedicated myself to writing a blog.
FIRST ATTEMPT TO TURN IT INTO CAREER
Later on I started practicing the art of Reiki energy healing and had my first clients. However these distant energy healing session quickly became channeling information sessions instead. My psychic gifts were becoming increasingly active through this process which led me to burn out, and after each session I would need to rest for 2 days straight. I had to stop practicing this kind of work due to enormous pressure on my psyche. That is when I decided to take a spiritual trip to Mexico where I was surrounded by dozens of spiritually gifted people, shamans and healers.
I then finally came back home where I obtained my Family Constellation certification, learned how to use metaphorical cards in therapy sessions, obtained Psychology Diploma and Life Coaching Certification.
IT WAS NOT ALL UNICORNS AND RAINBOWS
Looking back at my journey I am amazed...
It is difficult to list and put into words all the spiritual experiences I went through such as: lucid dreams, hallucinogenic experiences through meditations, consciousness-transforming experiences like chakra activation, out of body experiences, receiving information through trance states and meditations, foreseeing the future, dreams with applicable guidance. My tireless work on myself, my own blocks and limiting beliefs led me to extrasensory experiences. It seemed to me that what I was experiencing was something that an absolute minority felt and that I was opening doors to parallel realities or other dimensions. It was amazing, a feeling of delight that I cannot convey in words.
Even though what was happening to me was very special, it was not what made me special.
Judge for yourself - I grew up as a completely ordinary girl without any special talents, had average grades in school and lived in a family of ordinary people. In fact, I have never had any interest or cravings for the study of esoteric or extra-sensorial subjects. On the contrary, I have always prided myself on my ability to think logically and my sharp analytical perspective on life.
It might sound like my journey was all about unicorns and rainbows, but in reality I went through all the imaginable and unimaginable difficulties that you can think of. Envision a child who, over a short period of time, absorbed a life perception of an elder. The child's brain isn't prepared for such change, the child doesn't know what to do with it, and surely isn't equipped with necessary life skills and knowledge to embark on the journey in the smoothest way. I lost sleep and developed panic attacks. These intense struggles were pushing me towards deeper healing on all levels, strengthening connection to myself and the universe. I had to teach myself to live in the present moment, create a support system, take full ownership of my life, and now I am here to help those who are going through life difficulties.
WE ARE ALL GOING THROUGH SPIRITUAL AWAKENING
I am convinced that psychic sensitivity is our inevitable future, the direction that our consciousness is taking towards further intellectual evolution. And I am here, as Psychologist and Spiritual Awakening Coach to assist you wherever you are on your journey. I provide therapy & coaching sessions to people that are ready to take the next step into their new, expanded and pleasant reality. I don’t identify myself as a specialist in one category. I work with all sorts of traumas and crises, relationship issues, depression, creative and sexual blockages, relationship with money, addictions and people who are going through new consciousness altering metaphysical experiences.
I am an intuitive therapist and I guide clients towards uncovering and releasing any problem that they are facing. Moreover, I use an integrated holistic approach which encompasses logical psychoanalysis, psychology, methodology and of course, understanding spiritual principles and our inextricable connection with the universe.
We work with the mind which is wired to make logical sense of everything and we work with our unconscious which encompasses the metaphorical abstract world of pictures, symbols and associations.
I am very invested in my passion, in fact, I consider helping others an honor and a mission.
Everything I have learned about human psyche, universal laws, spiritual practices, therapeutic techniques and psychology overall helps my clients to experience a deep shift in consciousness even just within one session.
It is not an exaggeration that my approach helps to expedite the healing process by 4-5 times in regards to a regular "speaking therapy". I take pride in the fact that my work doesn't imply weekly sessions because it is usually not necessary since one session makes deep impact that needs to be digested over longer time. Even though it means less work and income for me, that's fine, I am a giver in nature and my biggest motivation is providing a lot value and creating sustainable subconscious shifts.
THERAPY AND SELF-DEVELOPMENT CAN BE PLEASANT
Every person is beautiful inside. No matter what you’ve been through and no matter how long you’ve fed the “wrong wolf” - the core of who you are is entirely good, beautiful and innocent. Walking through shadows doesn’t always have to be an uncomfortable and ego-poking process. No matter how deep you dive into the core of your issues, the right type of therapy would always end up directing you to a pleasant destination. My therapy is not about "ripping off the masks". On the contrary, we use your “light” to navigate you towards self love, lightness, acceptance, bigger picture perspectives, empowerment and heightened intuition.
Modern holistic therapy approaches help to bypass the mental health stigma and make this process fun, rather than scary and uncomfortable. Therapy and coaching is not for the 'ill' or 'weak' - it is for everyone. The metaphorical cards that I use as the main tool makes my sessions a pleasant, fun and entertaining experience. This tool will take you on a wonder journey and each of my clients has been absolutely fascinated with it, no exclusions :). The whole experience of my service makes people leave the sessions with lighthearted optimistic state, no matter the circumstances they come to me with.
Life does not have to be about coping with problems. Your new reality should be about living happily aligned with your highest good. I can show you how to get there. Let's take you back to magic!
MY FIRST METAPHYSICAL EXPERIENCES
I started to feel that something strange was happening to me, something that I had not experienced before. At first it felt like heightened empathy, but then things got much more interesting and I began to have my first psychic experiences. One night I decided to meditate focusing on my third eye (for the first time) before going to sleep. The next day I was walking back home from work and the middle of my forehead suddenly started to pulsate. The next moment I felt as if I entered wonderland, everything I looked at was moving in shapes and colors. I looked at the floor, trees, sky - everywhere I saw a constantly changing movie made of objects, people, faces, animals, everything. The moment I would fixate my sight on something - it would quickly change. It felt incredible, it felt like I have entered a dimension of consciousness that no one has ever entered before. Of course I was wrong :) We are all psychic and we all have access to the magic that this life has to offer.
