Miscellaneous Information

My name is Lia and I am from Greece. I lived in the UK for about 8 years and in August 2010 decided to return to Athens. I am now working as a Counselling Psychologist and Psychotherapist.

I attended WYSE ILP a long time ago and found it a unique and unforgettable experience. I believe WYSE offers young people (and older ones too) the opportunity to explore themselves and their wishes for their lives and the world around them.

A few years later when I felt I needed a boost of WYSE energy I attended the Advanced programme. Another thing that makes me passionate about WYSE is that it is always there when you feel you need it!

WYSE brings together people that care about what happens in the world and wish to be part of it.


Support us

You can support the future of our global community by sponsoring a participant and helping them develop the capacity to realise their dream of making a difference.
