Hi - I'm Lina Papista and I work as a Clinical Lead in Community Mental Health Services.
I qualified as a chartered Clinical Psychologist in 1998. Since then I held a number of jobs in Greece with the most substantial one being in the Hellenic Army (civilian staff).
After moving to the UK I worked with the British Psychological Society (BPS) and I was supported by Manchester Clinical Psychology program (ClinPsyD Doctorate in Clinical Psychology) and gained my Statement of Equivalence in Clinical Psychology by the BPS in 2008.
I have been working as a Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist for the last 15 years across different Specialist NHS Services. I have also worked in Specialist Autism services and in neuro-rehabilitation.
I have a very wide range of experience in complex psychological assessments. I have extensive experience in bespoke psychological therapy and in schema informed therapy.
I work closely with the local doctoral Clinical courses offering supervision and support trainee Clinical psychologists.
