Who’s writing

Maria Meramveliotaki-Simon

maria meramveliotaki simonI am a psychologist and psychotherapist with more than 10 years experience in providing therapeutic services and almost 6 years experience in trading Forex. Living in Limassol, Cyprus which is home to more than 100 forex and binary options brokers, I  am often involved in conversations about trading. People like talking about the importance of  a trading plan as well as the importance of a trader’s psychology. There are plenty of online articles about how we must manage our emotions in order to succeed.A  lot of these articles do not offer advice that would really help traders because they focus on trying to control or eliminate emotions. But as modern psychological research suggests, struggling to control emotions is the very problem in life and therefore in trading. All the existing misconceptions about trading psychology have inspired me to write my views on what would help traders to trade most effectively. These views are strongly influenced by Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), a powerful therapeutic approach that combines acceptance,mindfulness and behaviour change strategies . I truly aspire to assist traders in mastering their psychology and increasing their trading performance.
