Yolanda Koumidou started writing poetry at 10 years old. Her first poetry publication was entitled Kypros 1974 which she published in Greek as a young teenager in Cyprus, dedicating it to the lost soldiers of the 1974 war on her homeland.  She continued writing after immigrating to the United States in 1975. By the next two decades Yolanda published two more books of poetry entitled, My Wavy Life and Poems of Yolanda Koumidou. In the meantime her poems continued to appear in various poetry magazines. The late Cypriot Nobel nominated poet, Kostas Montis, wrote about Yolanda “…The poet talks to us with sincerity and the directness and compactness of her verse does not affect its simplicity.”

Yolanda lives in New York and for more than 30 years she has been maintaining a private practice as a psychotherapist.  In addition, she runs International Retreats for Inner Life Exploration in Europe, Asia, South America and Australia.
