Christine Kritzas

Psychologist

EDUCATION DIRECTOR

Christine Kritzas

I enjoy working with individuals from all walks of life, and I strive to create an environment where people feel free to express themselves and explore possibilities

I am committed to exploring and developing every person’s individuality and unique potential in a collaborative therapeutic relationship. I treat every intervention in a holistic manner whereby I adapt my approach to accommodate the needs of the individual who is seeking professional help. I am informed by systemic, narrative and cognitive-behavioural therapies and I hold the belief that the correct choice of treatment modality for each individual is essential to ensure a good response to the intervention. 
 
Prior to joining The LightHouse in 2016, I was a practicing psychologist in South Africa for 8 years where I worked extensively with children and families in distress. During that time, I created and developed a board game which aims at facilitating emotional expression in children. Smart Heart Board Game ® is manufactured in South Africa and distributed internationally (www.smartheartboardgame.com).

I recently attended the online Val-YOU workshop, led by Christine Kritzas, and highly recommend it. The workshop gives you the tools and frameworks to create your own, authentic vision board and to overcome the obstacles that stand in the way of achieving your goals. The workshop empowered me to take control and start living my life by design, and also helped me regain my self-confidence. Thank you so much Christine for taking the time to host this wonderful workshop, I look forward to attending more workshops hosted by The LightHouse Arabia in the future.

I attended the ValYOU2020 workshop hosted by Christine Kritzas and it was a wonderful experience! I would recommend this workshop to anyone wanting to learn practical skills to achieve your goals. Christine takes participants on a journey to have a deeper look at what they value in life, to identify their core values and develop the courage to take control over their vision for their futures. I look forward to attending more workshops from LightHouse Arabia.

Christine’s workshop “Materializing your dreams through visualization” has inspired me to cultivate selfawareness and to make sure that my inner critic has less air time. She helped me remember that inside of me was also a gentler, more compassionate voice. I left feeling more empowered and with the perfect 
tools to create my very first vision board. All in all, it was fun, enlightening and inspiring and I look forward to more!
