Andreas Economides MA MBACP
Hello, I'm Andreas and I am a qualified integrative therapist. My therapeutic approach is relational, which means my focus is on building a trusting relationship where you can feel safe enough to talk about your concerns.
You may be thinking about getting help because you have a particular problem such as anxiety, depression or relationship issues. You may, however, feel that something is not quite right in your life. Whatever your reason, therapy can help you explore and process difficult thoughts and emotions to build greater self-awareness and make more sense of your problems.
Before becoming a therapist, I worked in management and teaching, so I know how hard it can be to struggle with personal issues while working in demanding environments.
Choosing a therapist and finding one you can work well with can be difficult. Please message me if you'd like to arrange for us to have a short discussion over the phone, there's no obligation.
Training, qualifications & experience
I hold a BACP accredited Masters degree in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy and a degree in Psychology. I am also a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and therefore abide by their Ethical Framework and Professional Conduct Procedures.
As an integrative psychotherapist, I have trained in various therapeutic models, which I draw upon depending on the client’s needs. I describe my way of working as relational because there is an emphasis on the relationship between the client and therapist, which I believe is the most significant factor for psychological change.
I've worked for a number of years in the NHS, charities and in private practice, so I'm experienced in dealing with a wide range of psychological issues. I have previously worked in management and teaching, so I am also familiar with workplace issues and conflict resolution.
To ensure I meet continuing professional BACP requirements, I receive monthly clinical supervision, I maintain professional indemnity insurance and I have a valid enhanced DBS check. Additionally, I attend regular training and professional development courses to broaden my therapeutic skills.
