I qualified as a Speech and Language Therapist in Greece in 2009. In 2010, I was awarded a 3-year full time studentship from the Greek State Scholarships Foundation (I.K.Y.), after scoring highest in the nationwide speech and language therapy examination. In 2011 I completed my Master’s studies in Speech difficulties at the University of Sheffield. In April 2012, I began my PhD studies at the School of Psychology in the University of Birmingham.
At present I am an honorary psychology assistant at the Birmingham Children’s Hospital.
I have been working in the Speech and Language Therapy department, practicing sensory desensitization techniques in newborns with cleft palate and toddlers who have been tube fed and face difficulty in moving to mouth feeding.
I am also working in the Psychology department of the Birmingham Children’s hospital with children who present with behavioural eating problems.
