Vassilis Maoutsos M.D studied Medicine at the University of Athens. He continued his studies where he worked as a Registrar in Psychiatry at Addenbrooke’s and Fulbourn Hospitals of Cambridge University. Among other things, he was involved in research on ‘endorphins’ and the biological component of the ‘unconscious’ – issues he dealt with from very early on in his career. At theUniversity College London he experimentally investigated ‘REM sleep’ and coexisting bodily changes during sleep. His studies were inspired from the outset by the ‘metapsychological’ foundation of “psychoanalysis” which he developed comprehensively, always based on what is described scattered on the subject in the works of Sigmund Freud. In the historic psychotherapeutic unit of the Ingrebourne Centrehe served as Consultant and delvedfor long on ‘psychoses’. At the same time he wrote and published many psychodynamic texts of clinical and theoretical significance and was awarded the ‘Lady Balogh Award’.

He was elected member of the steering committee of the British Association of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. As a founding member of the London Freud Forum, he chaired it. He served as a permanent member of the standing committee of the London Rugby Conference, dealing for a long time with the study of the theoretical and clinical development of the relationship between Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy as well as with the necessary legislative differentiations between them. At the Hellenic Association of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy he had been elected Training Analyst and President of its Educational Committee. He became Full Member of the International Psychoanalytic Association (IPA), the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC), the British Psychoanalytic Association (BPA), the British Psychotherapeutic Association (BPF), the European Psychoanalytic Federation, the Institute of Classical Psychoanalysis (ICP) of which he remains Training Analyst and Supervisor.

He often undertakes various educational tasks as a psychoanalyst and has written extensively presenting his clinical and theoretical workin conferences and work-groups internationally. He has served as editor-in-chief of psychoanalytic journals (‘Clinical Psychodynamics’ and ‘Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy’). His work on ‘Metapsychology’ has decisively enriched the classical theses upon it especially those referring to‘Narcissism’ and the ‘Oedipus Complex’. His first book was published in 1981 under the title ‘The Invisible Human Brain’, New Horizon Publications, London. In 2016 ‘Metapsychology’ Volume I (369 pages) was published, in 2019 ‘Metapsychology’ Volume II (477 pages), in 2023 ‘Metapsychology’ Volume III (510 pages). For 2025, ‘Metapsychology’ Volume III is under publication.He works in Athens privately as a psychoanalyst.
