lternative Therapist Xenia Aidonopoulou

Xenia calls this site “Yes! We Are Stars!” because she now knows it to be true. She felt quite the opposite about herself for a long long time… Her unique journey from illness to health led her to understand that she is a unique, amazing and wonderful human and individual, as we are all… If you don’t know and believe this about yourself, it is because, as Xenia’s teacher Petrene says, “your fear, pain and wounds are standing in the way… you simply need to heal…” and you are definitely in the right place to do that!

Strength, motivation, knowledge…

Xenia’s healing journey has been to overcome and heal deep and debilitating depression that almost became the reason that she ended her own life and which she battled with for over 15 years…

Xenia tried every conventional treatment open to her at the time – counsellors, psychologists, psychiatrists. medication – and also many alternative forms of treatment and spiritual practises, without finding any real or lasting help. In total despair, balancing as she was, on a razor’s edge, it was as if by miracle and simple dogged and instinctual determination to survive and live that she was able to finally find her true Teacher, World Class Psychic, Healer and Author Petrene Soames and finally get well…

Finding her first real ray of hope and grounding in years in their first session together, Xenia has worked with Petrene on a weekly basis ever since first contacting her in 1999… She has since also gone multiple times to be with Petrene in the USA, both to clear and heal herself and then to study and become certified in the amazing healing methods that helped her heal… Petrene remains and will always remain for her, the highest evolutionary path and is indeed, “a doorway to all that is”. Xenia considers herself her apprentice…

Healing the world, one person at a time…

When Petrene told Xenia in their very first session together that she was suited to working with people and helping them to heal, she could literally not imagine anything further from the truth! Some time later and after having her mind blown by actually beginning to come out of that disabling depression with the help of Petrene, the first thing that Xenia did was to go on to study her methods and techniques.

Xenia first became certified in Counseling and in Healing, Clearing and Balancing and a little later on in Rebirthing… In doing so, she works with people as the unique individuals that they are she is not simply following theory or techniques…

She has been helping people to heal since 1999. In that time, she has helped hundreds of people get over depression, panic attacks, let go of anger, connect with themselves, learn about themselves, connect with life and healing… She has helped people have ever greater health, joy, happiness and get ever closer to the life they have always wanted. She feels so very grateful to be able to do what she does and she cannot imagine anything more important, meaningful, satisfying, exciting and suited to her than to continue doing so…

Xenia is always touched by and enjoys all of the kind words and testimonials clients have given her for this website, just as she is by their real life transformations… She wants to give people who need and are looking for healing every chance and encouragement to get it and she welcomes these testimonials and comments as it allows readers to know that there really is genuine help available

Therapists and healers cannot really help you or give you or teach you something which they themselves don’t already have, know and deeply understand. When you work with Xenia, all of her work, knowledge, dedication, all that she has been through and all of her many good qualities will be with you every step of the way.

You don’t need to go through what she did in order to get to where you would like to go… There exists a much shorter path to healing for you, because she has been through it herself already…

The simple, happy and full of joy life that it seems like all of us dream of, have read about, felt inside of ourselves and long for, can be attained and it doesn’t need to take a lifetime to do so…

Innovative… Xenia is a trailblazer…

When Xenia began her work in Greece, there was no “code” for “Alternative Therapist” at the tax department and so she had to improvise 🙂 By having sessions with Xenia you will be benefiting from and taking advantage of some of the most cutting edge and effective healing practises that exist at this time!

By nature ahead of trends and deeply committed to healing and transformation, Xenia was the first therapist to set up a practise for Rebirthing in Athens, Greece, bringing the unique and powerful form of Rebirthing created and taught by Petrene Soames.

This groundbreaking form of Rebirthing needs only 3 sessions to be complete and is the most advanced and complete form of Rebirthing that currently exists. Xenia is actually also the only therapist in Europe who is offering this form of Rebirthing as well as the advanced healing methods and self healing approaches that she does.

Xenia has made appearances on television to present her work and at one point hosted her own TV show on the local Athenian ecological and vegetarian channel “Tilefos”.

As an author, Xenia has written many articles, many of which have been printed in magazines and alternative newspapers. Xenia also takes part in many Alternative Health and Healing Festivals, presenting talks and workshops.

Xenia works in many places within Greece including Spetses, Kalamata, Pilion, Sifnos, Thessaloniki, Mykonos, Santorini and others… Also overseas, in the USA, Cyprus, Copenhangen, London, Australia and more… She is always open to creative work ideas and suggestions so please contact her with suggestions and invitations to your area! Xenia works with individuals, small groups and larger audiences.

Her roots, the Past…

Xenia is Greek-Australian. She was born in Athens, Greece and lived there until she was 10 years old. She moved to Melbourne, Australia with her mother, after her parents divorced and lived there for around 15 years before returning to her homeland, Greece…

You can hear that Xenia is multi-cultural from her accent, which many say can’t be placed… Actually, Xenia speaks both Greek and English fluently and sessions with her can easily be done in either language…

Animals…

Xenia has felt compassion and love for animals all of her life… Beginning with the stray kittens that she regularly saw abandoned in boxes at the small park near her childhood home in Athens and continuing on with images of the horrendous cruelty of medical and cosmetic animal experimentation that she was exposed to on TV as a young child in Australia…

She currently lives with quite a few amazing cats and 2 adorable dogs, all of which have been saved from the inhospitable and deadly to animals city streets… She would save even more animals if time and space would allow. What she gives to these animals is only a fraction of what they give back and she always encourages people to adopt an animal in need when they can… “Adopt, don’t shop” is her motto and there is much healing and balance that can be achieved for humans and animals in this way…

Diet & Nutrition…

Continuing on from her natural love for and awareness about animals, Xenia became vegetarian when she was 16 years old. She remained so for a few good years until, in the depths of depression, having lost all confidence in herself and her judgement and desperately wanting to fit in with everyone else in the hopes of regaining some semblance of “normality”, she went back to eating “like everybody else”.

She became vegetarian again at the beginning of her healing path with Petrene in 1999 and has been vegan since the year 2000. During her time as a vegan she has been a raw foodist for 7 years and a strict fruitarian for 5 of those. While she definitely does not recommend a raw vegan or a fruitarian diet to people, she did learn a great deal about what to do and what not to do from her time eating that way….

Coming from a place of bad health – depression, mental and physical weakness – Xenia has put a great deal of time and passion and got a great deal out of researching around diet and nutrition… The knowledge she has amassed is broad; it goes beyond book learning and the established norm and continues to evolve… She understands that everything is a process, so tries very hard not to be dogmatic when talking about diet with others.

She most definitely, wholeheartedly and with no reservations recommends a simple, whole foods, Vegan or plant based diet. She knows and has experienced that diet and nutrition can be an important part of healing and awareness. Diet and issues around eating are one of many aspects of life and healing that can be looked at during a counseling session and Rebirthing therapy is also something that helps greatly with emotional eating issues.

Dance and physical movement…

It is never too late to discover and do what you love to do! Just as she found her work and healing path at age 27, after almost giving up on ever finding either, so at 35 she “remembered” and re-discovered that she loves to dance and move her body…

To her utter amazement, as she was never encouraged and helped as a young child to take on any physical or athletic skills, she began to realise that she could learn, get better at and above all else love, get lost in and completely enjoy a whole new art-form which was also a physical and athletic skill…

She began with Argentine Tango which she danced for 5 years and is now in her 9th year of training in ballet, and contemporary dance. Having passions and physical and creative outlets outside of work and relationships are an integral part of a happy life and healing. She can help you find yours…

Early Learning and Commitment…

In the years when we are under a great deal of pressure to supposedly decide on a lifelong career, Xenia was deeply troubled that she, unlike everyone else it seemed to her, did not know or have the confidence to decide what she wanted to do.

She felt she had no choice but to go to university and in an effort to find the meaning of life and a way out of her as yet undiscovered depression, she began a Bachelor of Arts, majoring in Philosophy but also studying subjects like Art History, Cinema Studies, English Literature, Women’s Writing and African American Writing.

While unable to complete the degree due to her depression progressing, these studies led her to finally conclude that there is nothing more important than artistic and personal expression. She found out many years later why… Depression actually = Suppression and Expression is the opposite of and therefore in essence… The cure for depression…

She was accepted via a personal portfolio into photography school which she however also sadly discovered was not for her. It was with a great great deal of joy and relief however, that after many years of suffering and not giving up on finding her own creative and artistic outlet, she discovered her talent and passion for jewellery construction. She was able, despite her depression, to complete and receive her Diploma in “Jewellery and Metalsmithing” as one of the top students in her class…

Quite practical, technically minded and fiercely independent, Xenia also loves computer code, knows a little about HTML and CSS and has created as well as updates this website herself…

A final word…

Xenia is always developing and moving forward. She wants the same for you…

Xenia loves to learn and is deeply committed to evolution in whatever she does. She seeks out and strives to find the best possible teachers for her as she knows how important they are…

A true student of life, she passionately gives everything she has to learn, study and to keep building and enriching her life and herself with the things that are important to her… Her clients, her work, her art, self expression, self awareness, harmony, health, happiness, good relationships, nature and animals are just a few of those things…

Xenia can definitely help you to get closer to all of these things and more… She will work with you as the unique individual that you are and will help you find these things for you, in your own way and in and of yourself…
