ME-for-NEEW-WEB

… so, in two words, it doesn’t matter so much that I do not know what is coming next – however, I am not at all in the quest for any kind of universal and hidden “eternal truths”.
Simply, I respectfully bow to the Vast Unknown and I really do hope, thankfully, that there will be enough time just for still many miracles to be experienced…

I was born in Thessaloniki, Greece, and live here. Today, a big part of my interest is in the concept of psychotherapy.
I am member of E.A.G.T. (the European Association for Gestalt therapy) and accredited byE.A.G.T. supervisor. 
Moreover, in Greece and abroad, I am an external co-operator (in training, supervision, postgraduate and other Programs),  at various Centres and Institutes of training and psychotherapy (in Gestalt therapy or other modalities). 

However, as anyone else, I had and I have several other aspects.
My first degree was related to the medical field. 
Also, before my studies in psychology and psychotherapy, I have been a professional composer for about 17 beautiful years.
And, presently, I often get involved with the praxis and training in Playback Theatre, with the workshop of creative improvisation “Polytechno”, while I keep some activities related to music. 

Since 2006 I integrated several ideas and inspirations and I devised my approach PSP (Process-Stage-Praxis) – an adjunctive skill and a complementary tool with several application possibilities (psychotherapy, art, education, work).

In whatever I am doing, I am by now philosophically based mostly on our fundamental existential givens: loss, futility, loneliness, responsibility of choice. 
I am also focusing much on relationships of eros, sexual desire and love. On such themes I gradually structured a Program of lectures and experiential workshops, entitled: “The eyes in which I was mirrored”. 

On the activities mentioned above, I still find meaning and enjoy much in doing videos and write books and texts (in Greek and in English). My writings are both theoretical as well as of a literary style (mainly prose-poems or short stories).

19-22 September 2019, participating and facilitating a workshop in the EAGT Conference (Budapest)
The title of my workshop is "Body: the fertile bridge from nothing to something"

The basic idea of this workshop has to do with the processes of our experiential figures composition, on the level of their microstructure.
“Down there”, the conscious and mental understanding of such figures is meaningless because the “language” on these deep layers consists only of micro-emotions (affects) produced through a unique co-operation of body and brain.
Thus even when I the macro-scale of our minds we perceive “nothingness” and the emptiness of being, in the micro-scale of our being there is always “something” happening.
The same happens during the fertile void phase of contact – no mater how it is experienced, it always holds deep, non-conscious and literary “fertile” processes.
Such ideas, about interweaving of “conscious/mental” and “non-conscious/bodily/emotional” streams of experiential elements in any “meaning” in life, are in our days more and more firmly supported by Gestalt therapy theorists (Frank Staemler, Garry Yontef, Peter Philippson and others) as well as by the broader new convergence of neurosciences and phenomenology as it manifests in several contemporary works (by Daniel Stern, Shaun Gallagher, Dan Zahavi and others).
This workshop unfolds through alternating zones of very brief introductions on its coral ideas, experiments and sharing, in an overall existential “atmosphere”.

"The Hereticals I": A series of live-videos
"The Hereticals I" - my live videos on concepts that are horribly abused in internet, fb and by pop-psychology

This series of my live videos is SUBTITLED in ENGLISH. From September 2019 I shall start “The Hereticals II” which will be VOICED in ENGLISH.
The idea of doing “The Hereticals”, emerged as I reached the red line of my patience being bombardised by the huge trash in the internet about important concepts in psychotherapy, philosophy, relationships, life.
By no means I claim that I say in these videos any “correct” meaning of such concepts. I simply declare openly my thoughts about their abuse and I suggest my personal approach, which is based mostly on the existential aspects of the philosophy underlying the Gestalt therapy principles.
I know that subtitles is not something convenient, but in September 2019 I shall start doing these videos directly in English.

Inventory

… Into the wild, weird and wonderful of this world, I wish to all of us to have the courage and the skill to always find in the “inner” as well as in the “external” subjective reality things that are precious and worth to celebrate for them – even if and when we have to grieve for them…
