Holiday Facilitators: Ged Smith

skill, experience, warmth

Biography

Dr. Ged Smith is a consultant systemic psychotherapist with over 30 years of experience working in both adult and children's services in the UK. He has been published in many peer-reviewed journals as well as presenting workshops, conferences and supervising all over the world.

Ged is known for his engaging and humorous style and demystifying complex academic theories to make them more easily accessible to everyone. At Skyros Ged uses this experience and style to help participants make sense of their lives and stories in ways that make a positive difference to how they go forward, let go of negative narratives holding them back, and challenge the critical, judgemental voices that so many of us carry in our heads.

Travel

To travel to Skyros Island you must go to Athens. We have organised transfers from Athens (detailed below) to take the stress out of your journey.

Domestic Travel (Athens – Skyros, return)

Flights to Skyros island are limited so we recommend booking as soon as possible with Aegean Airlines. For this session we recommend – 

  • OUT: Departing Athens on the 7th July at 2.35pm, arriving to Skyros at 3.15pm
  • RETURN: Departing Skyros on 21st July at 3.35pm, arriving to Athens at 4.20pm

If the flight to Skyros sells out for these dates we will organise an overland transfer. 

International Travel (to/from Athens)

  • OUT: Arrive to Athens Airport on or before 12.35pm on the 7th July in time to catch the connecting flight to Skyros. Many choose to arrive the day before (on the 6th July) for a more relaxed journey. 

For those arriving in Athens on the 6th July we have an organised transfer including an overnight stay in Central Athens. If many arrive into Athens at a similar time we will arrange a courtesy coach (minimum numbers required) departing Athens Airport to the hotel where you can relax and meet others joining the session. The following day the bus will return to Athens Airport in time for the flight to Skyros. To join this transfer, select Single/Twin Share at the Dorian, Transfer to Athens Airport & Transfer to Skyros Centre when booking. 

For those arriving in Athens on the 7th July you will only require a transfer from Skyros Airport to the Skyros Centre. To secure this please select Transfer from Skyros Airport to Skyros Centre only when booking. 

  • RETURN: We have an organised transfer from the Skyros Centre to Skyros Airport in time for the flight to Athens. To join this organised transfer, select Transfer to Skyros Airport when booking.

We recommend allowing at least two hours in Athens Airport by booking an international return flight after 6.20pm on 21st July.
