I am Eleftheria, or you can call me Elfie.
I am from Greece and currently, i live and work in Zurich, Switzerland.
My journey starts in Athens, Greece, where i studied Physiotherapy.
Very active and passioned about sports but also very interested in human body injuries and pain, i followed the path of physiotherapy and alternative therapies. My working experience helped me to develop an interest in the coaching field, after years of treating people with acute and chronic injuries, pain and stress caused by chronic pain and disabilities. I have realized that patients can adapt better when i coach them how to deal with their injuries as a whole than just doing a rehabilitation exercise plan. This is why i decided to expand my knowledge and study more about Health, Wellness and Life coaching. I strongly believe in a holistic approach in every aspect.
Qatar was a stepping stone for my career. I worked for Aspetar, the first Specialized Orthopedic and sports medicine hospital in the gulf region, FIFA accredited and research reference center.
Dealing with Elite athletes in sports is a challenge. It’s not only about their rehabilitation after an injury, but also about their well-being.
As Diogenes, an ancient Greek philosopher once said:
“Healthy mind, in a healthy body”
My goal is to guide people to find the right path and help them understand and adopt a mindset that will easy their daily lives, either when it comes to an injury, pain, stress and anxiety but also even if they want just to improve their health habits. Working with Elite athletes, i found goal setting and focus, as the key to achieve and pursue any target and dream in life.
Moreover now, under the pandemic. Helping and encouraging each other is more important than ever before. It is true that we, humans, have great potential to adapt to stressful situations, but we are still humans and there are times we need support.
I have lived and work in four different countries in Europe and the Middle East and what i realized, is that people, no matter where they are coming from, have the same needs. Support, understanding, encouragement.
Together we can!
