I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist and a registered member of British Psychological Society (BPS), a member of the British Association of Cognitive and Behaviour Therapists (BABCP), a member of HCPC (Health and Care Professions Council) as well as, National Council for Hypnotherapy (NCH).
I hold a Bachelor degree in Psychology, a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychoanalytic Studies and a Postgraduate Diploma in Applied Systemic theory. My final and main trainings are in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) were I was awarded with an Advanced Practitioner Diploma in Counselling Psychology and a Diploma in Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy. I am very interested in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy as well as, Compassion Focused Therapy.
I practice Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and Cognitive Behaviour Hypnotherapy (CBH). Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is an evidence-based treatment proven to help people with a variety of problems such as depression, anxiety, self-esteem and confidence. The main principle is that our thoughts affect our mood and consequently our behaviour. In therapy, you will learn how to identify and modify your thoughts, which quickly results in you feeling and acting differently. You will learn techniques and coping strategies to help you deal with and manage difficult situations outside the therapy room. In CBT, the client and therapist have an equal, collaborative relationship working towards the client’s best outcome.
Cognitive Behavioural Hypnotherapy (CBH) is a technique that can help you change your feelings, thoughts and behaviour quickly. It can help you to either stop a behaviour, for example, binge eating or to enhance a behaviour, for example acting more confidently. CBH combines hypnosis with the theory, applications and principles from CBT. Hypnosis is a very pleasurable and safe experience. We have all experienced natural states of hypnotic trances without even realising it. For example, when we are absorbed in a film or when we are in a meeting but our mind flies away to something else. These are both forms of self-hypnosis.
I work collaboratively; we will explore your difficulties and I will help you by giving emotional support and practical advice about how to resolve them. In therapy you will learn how to manage and change your negative feelings and thoughts so that they are not so overwhelming. You will learn new tools and techniques to deal with practical problems. Life can be challenging at times. However, in my experience, change is possible. Using creativity, encouragement, compassion, humour and honesty, I commit with you on this journey.
I work in private practice both in Harley Street and Marylebone. I offer long and short term therapy, Skype and telephone consultations, both in Greek and English.
I am registered with Bupa, Aviva, Simply Health, AXA, Pruhealth, Cigna and Allianz.
My areas of expertise are in self-esteem and confidence, anxiety and relationship problems.
