My therapeutic approach is based on the idea that all of us have an inherent capacity to grow and change. Sometimes this capacity is ‘blocked’ by difficult life events or certain beliefs that prevent us from making meaningful changes.
During therapy I endeavour to create supportive space that will make you feel safe and comfortable, so that you are able to explore your difficulties and identify possible ways to deal with them. I believe there are multiple ‘truths’ in each story, therefore there are multiple solutions. As a therapist, I try to help my clients balance the need to become aware of, and accept things in life that cannot be changed, while simultaneously working on the things which can change to improve their emotional well being and overall quality of life.
Finally, I strive to make sure that therapy is based on one’s strengths, rather than their vulnerabilities. Based on this idea, I aim to help my clients develop alternative ways of dealing with stressful life events and continue growing.
I have been trained in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectic Behaviour Therapy (DBT), psychodynamic therapy and person-centered counselling.
I see my way of working as versatile, I draw upon different therapeutic approaches, depending on my clients’ goals, their needs and the length of therapy.
At the first stages of therapy, I will work with you to understand your difficulties, your current life circumstances and your strengths. Together, we will then develop a unique therapeutic plan for you, based on your goals, and how best we can help you achieve them.
My eagerness to understand the world and people around me made me start a career in psychology. Having spent several years working as a therapist, I remain curious and interested in the human psyche and the ways people relate with each other. I learn a lot from my clients and I think it is a privilege to be able to ‘sit’ with them in their darkest times.
I am a Counselling Psychologist with many years of experience working in the mental health sector, in different roles.
I have worked with clients dealing with a wide range of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, panic attacks, obsessive-compulsive disorder, personality disorders, trauma, bereavement and relationship difficulties. For the last three years, I have been working in the NHS, with people experiencing enduring mental health conditions and personality disorders.
When I am not working as a psychologist I love being near the sea, travelling to explore different cultures, and running.
I am able to offer therapy in English and Greek.
