Images as Prompts

Each postcard is the product of a specific story which is written for a client or a colleague. The stories may be connected to different people with unique life events, but we all identify ourselves with parts of the story or the images. The postcards can be used independently. They have written quotes on both…

The Polka Dot Skirt

I dedicate this story to my dear colleagues from the Functional Analytic Psychotherapy community who reinforced  my authenticity and showed faith in me:   “Be careful of your outfit. What you are wearing is not appropriate for a psychologist”.   This remark made my polka dot skirt shrink. I was not dressed up in a…

Song, lyrics and a smiling heart

Thursday the 21st of June 2018. Athens, 21.30 in the night. Listening to “Whole Lotta Love” by Led Zeppelin, while waiting on skype to be examined orally by Robert Kohlenberg.
