The founder

Joanna Makridou was born in Thessaloniki. She completed her postgraduate studies in Psychotherapy (Master in Integrative Counselling & Psychotherapy, Middlesex UK) and in Mental Health Counselling (COSCA, Counselling & Psychotherapy, Scotland UK). Her personal interest in the mental and spiritual dimension emerged through her participation in groups exploring various philosophical trends of thought and spiritual traditions. By staying in relevant centers in England and India, she pursued the synthesis of Western and Eastern thought and obtained skills and techniques that she uses in her groups. She has completed Postgraduate Programs in Therapy Gestalt (San Fransisco Gestalt Institute & Ecole Parisienne de Gestalt) and Trauma Therapy and Post-Traumatic Stress (PTSD), and gains specialist skills in programs such as: Psychogenetic System for couples therapy, Redecision Therapy, AIT (Advanced Integrative Therapy) and an annual seminar of clinical psychopathology (Eginitio Hospital) etc. She is the founder of the group «THERATREE», which aims to awaken the Senses of the Soul (Awakening the Senses of the Soul) primarily through experiential work with archetypes and ancient Greek myths. «THERATREE» is located in Kolonaki, an area of Athens, where she works individually and as a group facilitator.
