My name is Konstantina Pantoulia, Mental Health Consultant and Life Coach. My studies are around the field of Psychology and Coaching. In 2000 I graduated from the Department of Philosophy, Pedagogy and Psychology of EKPA and continued with the Postgraduate in Organizational Psychology at the City University of London from where I graduated in 2003. After that I was intensively trained in Adult Education, Vocational Guidance for Adults and Adolescents, in Effective Parenting.
In addition to these trainings, I specialized in a series of trainings and tools such as Life Coaching, Team & Leadership Coaching, NLP techniques, Multiple Brains Integrative Techniques, Provocative Coaching, Transformational Coaching. I believe in lifelong learning and I do not stop training in anything that interests me and I believe that it will help support my clients. I am certified as a Professional Certified Coach (PCC) by ICF and as a Senior Certified Professional Coach by the Coaching Transformation Academy.
I worked for about 15 years in the largest private higher education organizations, mainly organizing and directing the department of professional counseling and support of students and their graduates. In 2017 I left this beautiful chapter to focus on what called me and inspired me the most, individual counseling with Coach’s approach.
I started Ugrow where my vision for empowering people finds a home, as I can design and implement teams, projects and ideas that suit my values and purpose. In this process I collaborate with people we meet, where our values and our vision meet and we create with a common breath and joy.
In 2018 I had the honor to start my collaboration with the Hellenic Society of Positive Psychology. Together we designed the innovative and expanded training program for Diploma in Positive Integrative Coaching coaches. It is the first time in Greece and one of the few times internationally, that the scientific psychological community collaborates with coaching to highlight an innovative and without stereotypical approach to empower and support the people. The program has created its own community of people and runs successfully.
For me, Coaching is not a profession, it is part of my human mission. I have over 800 hours of personal sessions and have implemented about five personal development teams. I love to see people who trust me succeeding in changing themselves and discovering new ways to exist. A new way of doing things where at first they seemed hopeless. A new way to relate to themselves and others. I stand by them uninterruptedly, unaffected and completely supportive.
I greatly value the coach-coachee relationship and create the right field of trust so that a dynamic coaching relationship can be created. Coaching is the most effective way to discover your strengths and use them to your advantage at all levels of your life. My favorite quote is:
“If we do not change direction, we are liable to end up where we are headed”, Lao Tsu
