About Me

ABOUT ME

Please see the description in "my home" and the rules which apply. During the time of the year that my children are attending school, I am NOT AVAILABLE to spend much time with or chat with couchsurfers, as my children come home at 4.15pm and I need to take care of my son who is disabled. During the week, when they have school, you should wake up at 7:00 AM, and leave the house at 07:30 AM, at the latest (We cannot be late for school nor for work). This does not apply during the weekends of course. In July and August my children don't have school. I do have a family and we have "normal" working hours... which means that we have normal sleeping hours. We go to sleep around 23:00 (11:00 PM). That's why I cannot host people who will come back to the house later than this, But if you love going out AND can be back at 23:00 (or earlier), you are very welcome.

Hi, I'm a spiritual psychotherapist (& also a spirit medium) and I'm a woman. I'm married and I have two little children. I love RPG, reading, and watching movies (mostly American ones), but I do not really have time to do this 'cause I have to take care of my children !

Web site : www.athinaodias.com

Generally speaking, I'm very curious and I aslo love discussing certain "secondary" topics (except for the one I have written below) : military, armies, RPG, politics, economy, fair trade, vegetarianism, death penalty, societies, Paris' sightseeings, news, some movies, etc.
Keep in mind that I do love my job, but I'm OK with people who are not fond of esoterism, life after death, reincarnation and karma, I have other subjects to speak about, fortunately for you.

I kindly would like you to not ask me for a FREE fortune telling reading with tarot cards, since it's my job and people PAY me to have this session. I think you can easily understand why.
If I can give you free psychological advice, I will NOT give you a psychotherapy session for FREE.

I'm not hosting now, (Εκτός από για τους Έλληνες), (кроме русских тоже).

PHILOSOPHY

( Greek )

"Θάνατος μαύρος αδερφός,
Θάνατος θα γίνω αθανατος"
(Ήρωες)

Requests in PM will be denied if they do not have the key works written in my description ("my house"). If you don't even try to know me a little, why should I spend time to host you for free ? This is called "respect" and it goes both ways. I am not a free hotel.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I often host, not surf.
But I can host SOMETIMES last minute emergency couch, but you need to ask and put a request before on the group which is dedicated about (Paris last minute emergencies only 72h before or less) and have not received any answer.

I think CS is a great website to know better the heart of the people, and how they really are, without having to spend money for a bed.
Even if you do not want a couch but only to meet locals, I will not answer any message if it's not containing the keywords (yes, you need to read all my profile and my house also).

Interests

Helping people is my job, but I love also talking with my friends, going to the restaurant (whenever I can) and playing RPG. I love medieval and ancient history. I also loving reading about psychology which is not only part of my work but my passion. I'm very interested in military and polemology.

My first "love" is all about reincarnation, life after death, the life of the soul and so-called karma. I'm writing (in French) a book on this subject. The fact that it has to be published is another problem which I didn't solve yet ! :) And that I must also finish it...

I have a Phd in History, a Masters in Psychology and another Masters in Modern Greek interdisciplinary studies.
