Personal profile


Lefteris is a counselling psychologist and lecturer in psychology and counselling at Monash University. In his counselling practice, teaching and research, Lefteris adopts the framework of intersectionality whereby individuals' multiple identities intersect to create novel experiences of mental health and illness while operating as both protective and risk factors. As a psychologist, Lefteris has worked extensively with clients with issues relating to migration, grief, trauma and LGBTQI+ identities. He has also worked with clients with a variety of mental health issues, court-ordered parents and their children, and individuals and couples pursuing artificial reproductive treatment. Lefteris has a particular research interest in the wellbeing, grief and belonging of LGBTQI+ young people and adults and migrant populations.

Lefteris is the course leader of the Master of Counselling.

Lefteris is a member of the Australian Psychological Society (APS), a fellow of the College of Counselling Psychologists and a member of the Diverse Genders, Sexes, and Sexualities Advisory Group at Monash University.
