About Angela O.
I have a BA in Psychology (with distinction) from the American College of Greece, an MSc in Foundations of Clinical Psychology from the University of Wales in Bangor and I am a Registered Member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS).
I have been trained in the Rational Emotive and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (RECBT) established by Dr. Albert Ellis and I am a holder of the European Diploma in Trauma Therapy with the EMDR Method. I have also completed the specialisation offered online by the University of Pennsylvania on Foundations of Positive Psychology.
I have a passion for understanding people and uncovering the thoughts, emotions and patterns that make us all get stuck in self-defeating behaviours at times. Having been to therapy myself, I can truly appreciate the difficulty, the fear and the exposure one can feel while on this journey. I can also attest however to the incomparable gift that is knowing yourself, understanding yourself and loving yourself!
