About me and my therapy practice
Addiction specialist. Free initial 30' consultation. Rooms in Hove and Brighton. Flexible working hours, including evenings and weekends.
I have been trained extensively by CGL as a Substance Misuse Specialist and by Breakeven as a Gambling Addiction specialist. My BsC is in Psychology and my PGDip in Humanistic Counselling and Psychotherapy (University of Brighton). I have worked in the field of psychoeducation, as well which had as a primary target to help families and individuals develop a healthy lifestyle so that addiction is less likely to occur.
If I were to describe the way I work in a few words I would say that the client is guiding the course of therapy and together we work towards finding the best way to improve the client's life.
I do not believe there is a recipe on how to live life to the fullest or a universally accepted right or wrong way to do things. Therefore, much like a problem is specific to a person, the solution should be tailored to them.
I encourage existential exploration, through which the client can unpack and understand their beliefs, qualities, processes, values and in general the way they relate to people and things.
A client can expect from me empathy, genuineness and sincerity as well as unconditional positive regard. I will also put aside my assumptions and let the client reveal themselves to me, honouring their individuality.
For couples, I provide a platform for them to explore their relationship. I aim to help both sides find their individual voices and re-evaluate their roles.
In general my goal for my clients' therapy is to make myself redundant by helping them understand their lives, discover themselves and create their own coping strategies.
I am bilingual (English/Greek) and I can do therapy in both languages.
