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.
