Dr. Eleni Miltiadou

Clinical Psychοlοgist

Dr. Eleni Miltiadou’s education began in the United States, where she completed her undergraduate studies at the State University of New York at Stony Brook, obtaining a Double Degree in Psychology and Sociology. She then attended the London School of Economics and earned a Master of Science in Social Psychology. She continued her postgraduate studies in Cyprus, where she holds a Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Cyprus.

Throughout her studies, Dr. Miltiadou was trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, specifically one of the third wave therapies, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) by esteemed professors, including Dr. Steven Hayes, the founder of the theory itself. In 2012, she received a scholarship for training in Behavioral Activation at the Center for Addictions, Personality, and Emotions Research at the University of Maryland. She was also trained and certified in Parent-Child Interaction Therapy, a method she examined as part of her thesis with parents and their children in Cyprus.

Her clinical practice encompasses clinical assessment and intervention, both individually and in groups, addressing symptoms of depression, addiction-related issues (smoking, substances, alcohol, gambling), personality disorders, anxiety disorders including panic disorder, problematic behaviours, psychopathic symptoms, and eating disorders.

Dr. Miltiadou worked as a research scientist at the Developmental Psychopathology Laboratory of the University of Cyprus for 8 years, where she contributed to research programs dealing with behavioral problems and psychopathic traits in children, adolescents, and adults. Her thesis focused on examining three therapies for children exhibiting problematic behaviour and psychopathic traits.

Since 2018, Dr. Eleni Miltiadou has maintained a private practice as an applied clinical psychologist, offering psychological services tailored to each clinical case. Scientific research has pointed to the efficacy of various types of therapy for specific emotional, cognitive, and behavioral problems. Grounded in the Science-Practitioner theory — the coexistence of knowledge provided by scientific research combined with the bio-psycho-social factors of each patient case — a foundation is provided for more effective therapy.

As an applied psychologist, continuous education and lifelong learning are integral to her profession, as knowledge is constantly evolving in terms of new research results as well as the practical application and development of therapies.
