About me and my therapy practice

I am a qualified humanistic counsellor who has experience in working with a variety of clients. I use the Person-centred approach as well as other humanistic approaches such as Gestalt and Transactional analysis. I have experience of a wide range of areas, including mild to moderate depression, anxiety, trauma, loss, bereavement, divorce, relationship issues, domestic abuse, self-esteem and work-related issues. Furthermore, I have experience working with adults, elderly people , young adults and children. I work ethically and comply with the BACP ethical framework. I am bilingual and I offer counselling in English and Greek.

I hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and have been practicing since 2016. In addition to seeing private clients, I have extensive clinical experience from working within the NHS, Mind, Cruse Bereavement Care and Woman's Trust charity focusing on survivors of Domestic Abuse.

Practice description

There are many reasons why you might be looking for talking therapy. Perhaps you can't talk to anyone about your feelings or that you feel that people close to you wouldn’t understand or be able to help. Whatever your reasons are, my professional training and therapeutic experience can help you to examine your issues. A therapeutic space with me can give you the opportunity to open up and explore in a safe and confidential space. In my experience, exploring the issues you have and their causes can help you to resolve them and show you the way to positive and long-lasting change in your life. 

My first session

I am aware that finding the right counsellor can be challenging and that booking your first counselling session with me might be daunting. I would like to reassure you that you are not making any commitment just by getting in touch. I offer free 30 minute telephone  consultation so that I can give you the opportunity to decide if I am the right counsellor for you.

 Additionally, I may be able to offer you a reduced fee if you are a key worker ,on a low income, unemployed or a student.
