Frosso Souldouri - Psychotherapist, Rg.MBACP, MPBsS
Welcome. I am an experienced therapist, committed to show warmth, acceptance and empathy and a focus on you and your story.
I am an Integrative practitioner with 16 years of experience working with individuals, couples and young adults in a range of different professional settings.
Why therapy and how I can help?
Therapy can be a challenging but satisfying journey that can help you to be more giving, to grow, to learn, to be more responsive to your environments, to learn how to interrelate and to improve your mental and emotional wellbeing.
My work involves to help you explore difficulties that may be causing you distress and to make changes in life that you feel would be beneficial. It can also provide an opportunity to become more aware of yourself and your 'place' in the wider world.
You may wish to explore a specific issue or you may have a more general feeling of discontent or distress. You may be experiencing depression, anxiety, or having difficulties at work place or with personal relationships.
Whatever your issue, I commit to offer a safe, confidential and a non-judgmental space
where we can explore the challenges and opportunities in your life in order to relieve psychological symptoms, generate change and bring a greater sense of wellbeing. With these goals in mind I offer short term individual and couple counselling and long term psychotherapy, tailored to suit clients’ needs.
What to expect in your first meeting.
At times it might feel very daunting contacting a psychotherapist; however I seek to offer a warm, engaging and empathetic environment and a trusting therapeutic relationship. In our first meeting I seek to gain a greater understanding of your presenting difficulties and to explore with you a therapeutic contract that would enable us to facilitate your journey towards a greater degree of self awareness and happiness.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a BSc in Psychology and an MSc in Integrative Therapeutic Counselling. I am a registered member of BACP and BPS. In addition I hold a PG Diploma in Psychodynamic Supervision by the WPF accredited by BPS. I adhere to the strictly code of Ethics both from BACP and BPS.
Integrative therapy is a combined approach to psychotherapy that brings together different elements of specific therapies such as Psychodynamic, Person Centred, and Cognitive Behavioural Modalities.
In my practice I consider each person as a whole and I tailor my therapeutic approach to their individual needs and personal circumstances. My training is important to my practice and experience as I strongly believe that there are many ways in which human psychology can be explored and understood - no one theory holds the answer. The integrative approach also refers to the infusion of a person's personality and needs - integrating the affective, behavioural, cognitive, and physiological systems within one person, as well as addressing social and spiritual aspects. Essentially, in my practice I am not only concerned with what works, but why it works - tailoring therapy to my clients' and not the client to the therapy.
As a counsellor I have developed high level of skills and experience in dealing with people presenting a complex level of psychosocial needs. I provide a high level of containment for people in distress and I have substantial experience in risk assessment and management. In order to keep my practice rigorous and up-to-date I attend regular supervision. There I can reflect on my work and explore the best ways to serve my clients.
