Alice Seferiades, UKCP Reg. Psychotherapist & Supervisor
I am an Integrative Psychotherapist, in the NHS and in private practice in North London. I have over ten years of experience of helping adults find their way through a wide range emotional difficulties. I provide a safe, calm and respectful therapeutic space where we work at your pace towards your goals.
I trained to be an Integrative Psychotherapist, gaining knowledge and skills in the main theoretical models of psychotherapy (Psychodynamic, Person Centered, CBT and Existential). I am able to draw on different theoretical models and techniques in response to my client’s preferred ways of working and individual difficulties.
Individual psychotherapy is about creating a relationship where you, the client, can feel safe enough to express and explore your feelings, thoughts and experiences. Some of these may be very painful and difficult and others might even be outside your everyday awareness. You will choose what you want the focus of our work to be. I will listen and then help you explore, link and make sense of experiences and feelings. In my experience, this process often brings emotional relief, clarity and makes change possible.
My clinical experience
I have experience of working successfully with adults of different ages, cultural background and sexual orientation, who are experiencing distressing emotions, manifesting as depression and anxiety.
For some, a recent event may be a trigger, e.g.
loss of a job
illness or accident
life stage transition
For others, these feelings are linked to old experiences or traumas, e.g.
relationships with parents
childhood abuse (verbal, physical, sexual, neglect)
race & cultural differences
low self-esteem and low self confidence
Our first meeting
At our first meeting I will ask you to tell me a bit about what has brought you to therapy and how you hope therapy and I can help, and ask me any questions you may have. Most importantly, you will get a sense of me and what it would be like working with me. You will then be better able to decide if I’m the right psychotherapist for you.
If you decide to continue working with me, we will discuss fees and appointments, which usually take place weekly at the same time.
I am bilingual in English and Greek and work in both languages.
Skype & Telephone sessions
We can discuss having Skype or telephone sessions for exceptional sessions (e.g. travel) within the context of ongoing face to face therapy.
If you think you would like to work with me, you can call me or send me an email. I will call you for a short conversation to discuss any questions you might have and arrange a first appointment, if that is what you decide.
