I am an Accredited Clinical Integrative Psychotherapist, Counsellor & Cognitive Behavioural Therapist registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP). I offer evidence based therapy to individuals in both Greek and English. Sessions can be carried out face to face and online and booked as one off, time limited (6, 8, 12, 24 sessions or open ended).
People’s reasons for therapy vary from anxiety, stress, and depression to trauma and relational difficulties. Still others are curious to discover more about themselves and keen to enrich their relationships and inner lives. Whatever your circumstances, therapy can be the first step in an empowering journey of self-awareness and transformational change.
I started working as a therapist in 2006 with adults who face a wide range of difficulties eg. feelings of depression and anxiety, low self-esteem, difficult relationships and workplace problems to PTSD, OCD, cultural difficulties and diagnosed mental health conditions. Since then I have gained extensive experience working for Primary (Improving Access to Psychological Therapies IAPT Services) and Secondary Care in the NHS, University Counselling Services as well as charitable and private organisations. I have delivered therapy through the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP), run well-being groups in UK and Greece, designed and delivered wellbeing and recovery workshops to groups according to NICE guidelines. I have extensive experience delivering face to face and online therapy to adults.
