Dr Anastasios Argyropoulos
We all face life’s adversities, paradoxes and challenges and the ways in which we deal with these can be invaluably informative. Therapy can help us become a creative source of possibilities, conscious and active in the shaping of our life-stories.
I am an experienced therapist and working with you I will aim to create a containing therapeutic relationship-a 'safe space' as we often call it- so that past and present, feelings, emotions and thoughts can be explored empathically in-depth. Authenticity, openness, compassion and creativity are things I strive for and value. Respect of your autonomy is of paramount importance in the process.
I have substantial clinical experience having worked in Psychiatric and Third Sector organisations as well as in Consulting and Higher Education. Through my Private Practice in Central and West London i work with adults on short and long term contracts.
The initial consultation with me in a non-judgemental, friendly environment is an opportunity to talk about your difficulties and expectations, and to explore what may feel like an appropriate way to work (fees, frequency of sessions and suitable interventions are discussed). If I assess that my way of working is not appropriate for you, I will endeavour to refer you to a colleague. I am a recognised Professional by most Health/Insurance Providers (in the UK & globally).
Online therapy: I also specialize in online and remote treatment, seeing clients internationally and offering continuity of care for people on the go and for those in remote locations who may not otherwise have access to quality care.
If you are a busy professional, you can contact me to enquire about the weekend and pre-work (early morning) clinic.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a counselling psychologist chartered with the BPS (British Psychological Society) and an experienced counsellor/psychotherapist with 20 years of clinical experience in the U.K. and abroad. In parallel with my private practice, I am a tutor in various academic courses and I work in the NHS where I supervise the work of other colleagues. In addition, I am an active researcher involved in the wider applications of psychology and psychotherapy in society and I am regularly contracted by organisations to consult on behaviour and change management.
I have been trained in different psychotherapeutic modalities which these inform my integrative/relational approach to counselling. I am a member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and of the British Psychological Society and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC, Registration number: PYL37243).
