My name is Foteini and I help people who want to journey from surviving life to enjoying and embracing life to its fullest.
At the heart of my work lies the conviction that no matter what has happened to us in the past, we can heal in the presence of a safe and supportive other. In this way I endeavour to honour your struggles and accompany you during challenging and searching times. I work collaboratively as I believe that clients have deeper wisdom they need to listen to and my role is to support you to tune into that wisdom, as you move forwards in seeking out more mutually satisfying relationships.
I am a relational, integrative psychotherapist and draw from an array of ideas that may be useful to understand how past experiences might be casting a shadow over the present, prohibiting you having a more fulfilling life and deeper relationships. Of equal importance to me is the present and how your immediate world of others is a cause of joy and happiness or sadness and regret. Furthermore, I am curious about the future, in terms of how your future might be drawing you to make choices in your life that will bring greater fulfilment and help you move forward in your life.
Therapy is a potential transformative journey. Whether you decide to work with me on a short or long-term framework I will offer you a safe, caring, non-judgemental space where you can explore your thoughts, reflect on your emotions and try out new ways of being and relating.
I am experienced in working with twins and have extensive experience of working with clients who suffer from anxiety, depression, feelings of emptiness, worthlessness, and inadequacy, as well as clients with symbiotic and co-dependency issues.
I offer counselling and psychotherapy to adults and young people from my consulting room in Woking, Surrey (GU22). I am bi-lingual and can provide therapy in 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.
