About the researcher

Hello everyone. I am a medical graduate from Cyprus who is currently doing a Master's course in Brain Sciences at the University of Glasgow. I am interested in mindfulness and other forms of techniques that alter the state of human consciousness and provide people with mental tools that can help them cope with negative emotions.
