My name is Despoina Kairi. I was born in Athens, Greece and moved to the Netherlands in 2011 after having completed my BSc degree in Psychology at Panteion University.
In the Netherlands, I completed the Master's program in Clinical Psychology at Leiden University.
In 2014, I acquired a Certificate in Existential Life Coaching and Well-Being from KU Leuven University.
Receiving continuing education and training is a crucial aspect of my professional development.
Since 2015, I have completed the Level A of training for Emotion-Focused Therapy, (EFT-I and EFT-II) as well as the basic course on Client-Centered Psychotherapy (Basis Clientgerichte Psychotherapie, Apanta Academy). In 2018, I will be undertaking the training of supervised EFT practice (Level B), towards the accreditation of EFT-therapist by International Society for Emotion-Focused Therapy (ISEFT).
Lastly, I have also started my training on EMDR, which will be completed in the end of 2018.
For the past years, I have been working with expats as well as with students as a counselor at Webster Counseling Center (WCC).
At the moment, I am living in Amsterdam and working as a psychologist at my practice "InnerPiece Psychologie Praktijk", where I offer individual sessions for psychological support. My offices are in Vondelpark, Amsterdam and in Leiden (FrameOffices). In addition, I have been working at Webster university in Leiden, as an adjunct faculty, where I teach undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
