Hello, and welcome to my profile! I really appreciate you considering me as your therapist. Looking for someone to share your concerns with is a really great step towards your mental health. It is also a very brave thing to do!
My main focus is building a strong and empathic relationship with you, so we are able to explore all aspects of your self and your experience, and what they mean for you. Together, we can find ways to enhance your sense of well-being, and help you become your fuller self, however this might look like for you.
During the sessions, you are welcome to share anything you would like about past, present, or future. I am also happy to ask you questions and give insights about what you have already shared. Oftentimes, something that happened during your week, and the way you process how you felt about it, can open up a discussion about your coping patterns and way of relating to others. This in turn can help us understand yourself better, as well as how it is that you would like to live life, and how to achieve that.
I provide weekly psychotherapy sessions (currently over Zoom) at a standard time and day of the week that we can agree on together. I usually work on an open-ended, long-term basis. However, I am happy to offer shorter term contracts, at minimum six weeks, if you feel that this is what would work best for you and your situation.
I am an integrative psychotherapist, which means that I draw on a variety of psychotherapeutic approaches in order to best suit your needs. The main approaches that I utilise are: Humanistic, Psychodynamic, and Internal Family Systems.
I can provide therapy in both English and Greek.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
