I hold an MSc in Therapeutic Counselling. In the past, I have worked at a University counselling service, a mental health day centre, a local Mind counselling service, a specialist therapeutic service for problem gamblers, and an NHS Specialist Psychotherapy Service. I am currently teaching counselling at a London University. I have completed a two-year mother and infant observation study, and I am in further training in intensive Jungian psychotherapy.
I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and I abide by their code of ethics. I have completed my training at the University of Greenwich and I have a certificate in specialist counselling with problem gamblers. I have received extensive mindfulness training, and specialist training in working alongside transgender, non-binary and gender non-conforming people.
I am familiar with working with the following types of distress or areas for personal development: depression, anxiety, bereavement, difficulties with food, relationships, abuse, low self-esteem, bullying, work-related stress, drug and alcohol misuse, compulsive, destructive or self-harming behaviour, gender, sexual and relationship diversity, race and racism, HIV and sexual health, family problems, parenting, spiritual or cultural issues, anger management, and domestic violence, among others.
I have also worked in many different media, including traditional face-to-face counselling, as well as online counselling. I usually encourage clients to meet me face-to-face first or to have a brief discussion to assess the suitability of online therapy before commencing this kind of work.
I am able to offer short-term, long term or open-ended therapy. Therapy can be offered both in English and in Greek.
