Anna Koutelieri, Adult Psychotherapist and Counsellor, Pg Dip, UKCP
I am a UKCP registered psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor, with over 10 years' clinical experience of working with people with a wide range of emotional difficulties. Working in central London, I provide a confidential and secure environment in which you can explore your thoughts and feelings about problems and areas of conflict, as well as the difficulties of everyday life.
Embarking on a counselling or therapy process can feel like a big step, but counselling and therapy can be helpful in allowing you to increase self-awareness and to identify self-destructive patterns of behaviour. We will work together to help identify and reflect on areas of your life that are problematic for you. However, counselling and therapy also involve the emergence of difficult feelings; my role is to help you to explore the issues you feel are important for you at your own pace, and in a way that is contained.
You are welcome to telephone or email me at any time. I treat all enquiries with complete confidentiality.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am registered with UKCP and abide by their ethical code.
My training as a psychodynamic counsellor and therapist was at WPF Therapy. I have an Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice and a Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Studies from Roehampton University. I am committed to continued professional development, and have full-cover professional indemnity insurance.
I have worked in a variety of mental health settings with adults with a very wide range of problems and difficulties.

Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme

Areas of counselling I deal with
I operate a sliding scale of between £65 and £85, depending on your financial circumstances. The fee that we decide on together is dependent on your income, and on whether the appointment is in the daytime or in the evening. I have a limited number of appointments for clients on low income.
I charge £70 for the initial consultation meeting. This first meeting usually lasts between 60 and 90 minutes.
