About Me

Hello, I'm Foteini

Thank you for visiting my profile and I hope that my services can be of help to you.

I am a relational, integrative psychotherapist practicing from my online consulting room, seeing clients who live in the UK and around the world.

My aim is to help improve the quality of my clients’ lives. The individuals that come to see me often note a persistent feeling of not belonging or fitting in, even when everything seems to be ok on the surface. Others describe spending years feeling not good enough or unlovable.

I have worked extensively with clients that suffer from trauma and loss, anxiety, depression, feelings of emptiness and inadequacy, co-dependency issues and self-destructive behaviours. My experience also includes supporting individuals who are identical or fraternal twins.

At the heart of my work lies the conviction of the healing power that human connection holds. Our primary need for relationships are indispensable to a healthy sense of self, so when our world of relationships becomes neglectful in childhood or non-reciprocal in adulthood, then our mental well-being becomes thwarted. In this sense, whilst relationships can cause human suffering, they can potentially heal and restore that which has been neglected or broken within us.

Utilizing the hopeful message that “no matter what has happened to us in the past we can heal in the presence of a safe and supportive other”, I strongly believe that finding the right therapist, who can provide a nurturing, holding space, can help you resolve emotional pain, traumatic memories, grief and sadness.

I follow a strengths-based, de-pathologizing approach in my work, as I believe that self-destructive behaviours are in actuality creative forms of communication and coping, that are trying to give voice to what has happened to us, in an attempt to resolve painful and traumatic experiences that do not yet feel resolved.

If you feel that my words resonate with you in some way, and would like to see if my services can be of help to you then I encourage you to contact me by email ( to schedule an initial assessment that will give you the chance to see if you feel that we are a good enough fit to work together.

I look forward to meeting you.
