Eftychia 'Fay' Kalapoda
I am a qualified Cognitive Behavioural therapist, specialized in Rational Emotive Behaviour therapy (REBT), which is a leading CBT approach.
During this type of therapy you will learn to change your unhelpful feelings and behaviours through exploring your thinking about past, present or future life events.
Rather than focusing on what is outside your control you will learn valuable tools and techniques on how to help yourself by changing what is within your control.
We can work together on relationship issues, self-esteem issues and emotions such as depression, anxiety, stress, anger, shame and guilt.
CBT is a time-limited therapy and often within 6-8 sessions you will see significant results.
My goal as a therapist is for you to leave therapy having build a tool-kit for life and having the confidence and know how to help yourself in the future and cope effectively with life's challenges. I have experience helping clients deal with emotions such as depression, anxiety, guilt, shame, anger, jealousy and so on. I also have experience working with relationship problems as well as low self-esteem/confidence issues.
