Anastasia Sapouna

Anastasia graduated from the University of Essex with an honors BA degree in Psychology (first class). She then worked as an apprentice therapist with children and teenagers with autism and developmental deficits and with severe mental health patients in a community health centre in London. She continued her studies in Brunel University where she did an MSc in Counseling and Guidance in Education, with particular focus on counseling adolescents.

Upon returning to Greece, she collaborated with psychotherapeutic centers to gain further experience as a counselor and worked for the National department of Secondary Education, where she conducted numerous educational seminars on adolescence for public and private secondary school teachers. Following her passion on counseling and empowering adolescents, she undertook a diploma on becoming a vocational guidance counselor and since then she has been working with teenagers on a freelance basis and as an associate to Platon private school and IEPAS (Institute of Career and Professional Development). Through out her work with adolescents she appreciated the underlying emotional difficulties that hindered their schoolwork and family life and guided her therapeutic work towards enhancing emotional health and stability.

In 2010, she joined the professional network of EDO the Hellenic Bipolar Organisation and BipolarLab.com and she has focused all her clinical work on adolescent emotional health. Anastasia in collaboration with Dr. Malliaris have developed diagnostic and therapeutic (individual and group) programmes for teenagers (14-18) with emotional difficulties who may also have a parent or relative with bipolar or depressive disorder. These teenagers represent an important high-risk population for developing a mood disorder. As the latest evidence indicate early psychotherapeutic input is vital for preventing the development of a future bipolar or depressive disorder.

Anastasia provides her services as a Mood Monitoring Facilitator and also psychological support counselor in English and Greek.
