Fotini Giannakis, MA
Mental Health Counselor
My name is Giannaki Fotini. I grew up in America specifically in New York and later in my life I came to Greece. I studied at the American College of Greece (Deree College) where I obtained two degrees. My first degree is an associate degree in arts and the second is a B.A degree that specializes in Psychology.
Then my great love and my dream was to study Clinical Psychology and I studied at the University of Indianapolis in America where I obtained my Masters. Abroad I did several workshops and seminars on the clinical part of psychology. I have visited Riley children’s Hospital (Indiana U.S.A. 2008), and I have had a seminar at the American Red Cross for people who have suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder.
I have worked for six years with children with neoplasmatic disease advising them and their families. I have done eight months of practice in a psychiatric hospital in Attica where I worked with patients suffering from schizophrenia, mania, bipolar disorder, phobias and anxiety disorders.
I have eight years of experience in child psychology. During these years I have done several educational seminars as far as teenagers are concerned, couples’ counseling and ways to manage stress.
I have been certified on subjects on positive psychology and Chinese philosophy on subjects such as the path of joy of life from Harvard University (Harvard ex).
A year ago I obtained my degree in life coaching from Aegean College where I work on these systems for people who want to manage their daily lives with a program that suites their way of living without feeling stressed.
I am also a Reiki Master-Teacher with extensive experience in the application of holistic methods for the treatment of psychological disorders.
