About me

Welcome! I am a well-qualified and experienced psychotherapist, counsellor and parenting advisor. I work with individuals, couples and families in private practice in Wimbledon, London.

As a therapist, I take a personal interest in each and every one of you, my clients. My goal is to inspire and support you in your journey for a fully active and enriched life. Connection with our inner strength and alignment with our intuition is the cornerstone for an authentic and fulfilled life.

People come with a wide range of cultural, ethnic and family backgrounds, religious practices, values and experiences. I respect diversity and adapt treatment to cater to individual needs.

Training, qualifications & experience

I studied psychology at the Ohio State University and completed my MSed at the Northern Illinois University. My training as a systemic family therapist was at the Laboratory for the study of Human Relationships (an accredited EFTA-TIC centre for systemic and family training in Athens Greece). I also trained as a psychodynamic psychotherapist at the world-leading centre, Tavistock Relationships, in London.

Being an educator for many years at the Hellenic American Foundation, I bring to my work my broad experience and a deep interest in the well being of children and their families.

My experience comes from continuous professional education and training and lifelong personal development, many years of working with clients and of course working through my own share of challenges and learning from lessons that life constantly brings to our path.

I can work with you on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to enhance your life and to live it wholeheartedly.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
