Olga Konstantinou, Ph.D., is a clinical psychologist and psychotherapist working in the independent and public sector. She first started her undergraduate studies in the field of Pedagogy (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Department of Primary Education). She was then intrigued by Psychology and continued her studies in this area. She holds a degree in Psychology (Bsc) and a Msc in Health Psychology from Middlesex University, London. She also holds a Ph.D. in Psychology from the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens, Department of Psychology. She has been trained in systemic psychotherapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and trauma therapy (EMDR and CRM). Her clinical work has been with adults in a drug addiction setting in the public sector for the past twenty years. She also works as a psychotherapist in the private sector with individuals, young people and families. Her practice includes therapy, training and writing.
She is excited by social constructionist ideas, research and new ways of doing systemic inquiry. Of particular concern, is the use of fairy tales as a way of enriching dialogical practices in therapy and the use of transformative ways of writing in constructing new narratives. She is also interested in the resilient stories revealed in the narratives of trauma survivors. She has translated and edited in Greek language Peggy Penn’s book Joined Imaginations which can be found in the Taos Worldshare free books series.
