I am originally from Montreal, Canada of Greek descent and had the good fortune of living and working in Canada, Greece and now live in London, United Kingdom and speak English, Greek and French.
When I was 20, I helped a friend, who asked for help, and she eventually realised that she (unknowingly) was sexually abused by a parent, who was taking medications and an assortment of pills including anti-depressants. She quickly abandoned the pills and the frequent visits to her doctor and psychiatrist. It was an amazing experience for me at the time, to know that I can help another human being, after she specifically said to me: "You helped me more than all the doctors and pills combined!"
That give me the 'AHA' realisation and understanding that this was my calling. The journey was not an easy one to get here today, quite bumpy actually with many detours and falling down and having to get up again, again,...and again.
I was awarded a BA in Psychology, a MSc in Psychology and Counselling and a Graduate Diploma in Human Resource Management (MCIPD) from Manchester Metropolitan University and a Diploma in Psychology from The Open University. Afterwards, I became a Master NLP Practitioner from the Society of NLP (being taught and trained by both Paul McKenna and Richard Bandler, co-founder of NLP).
During my training as a counsellor (and counselling psychologist), clients' issues ranged from depression, physical, sexual and substance abuse (e.g. drugs and alcohol), relationship matters, addictions, fears, phobias, procrastination, including making the right decisions for their business and career, on the next steps forward toward their progress and growth.
After a career as a generalist HR (Human Resources) professional and having worked as a business consultant travelling to many countries in Europe, Africa, United States of America and Canada, I focused on recruitment, which I believed was the best part of HR, because of the interaction and being of service, to many internal and external clients.
After a successful career as an internal recruiter, life offered a huge professional challenge to change, adapt and become resilient, due to a changing marketplace, because of downsizing and the advent of Linkedin. I can tell you, it was an enormous and incredible struggle and challenge to reinvent myself back into the marketplace.
I then also trained to become a Change Management Practitioner, Facilitator and Project Manager and eventually gaining the APMG Change Management Foundation and Practitioner level, CHAMPS2 Foundation, PRINCE2 Foundation, MSP Foundation and the DDI Facilitator Training Accreditation.
I also taught personal development at the University of Arts London (School of Fashion), as a guest lecturer and was a guest speaker at various professional events.
I am mentioning this, not to impress you, however to emphasise my lifelong commitment to helping and serving people live happier, healthier and more fulfilling lives that bring them closer to their goals, dreams and potential.
One of my virtual mentors, Tony Robbins, stated that "to truly feed your spirit, remember this: The secret to living is giving'.
He meant that our lives have greater meaning, when we contribute and make a positive difference for the benefit of others.
He also stated that where focus goes, energy flows. This is key and this is the foundation of what I do with my clients: to help them focus their mind (and turnaround their mindset), body and energy on what they do want in their lives.
Within this purpose and pledge is to help you, as an entrepreneur and business owner, own and lead your mind, life and business and guide you to mastering new tools, that will bring you closer to the outcomes that you want and desire in your life, for you, your loved ones, employees and your community.
My life lessons, combined with my professional experience and training, have showed me who I am as a man, as a social human being interacting with others and have prepared and blessed me to offer you the experience, knowledge and tools to lead the life you wish and desire.
