About me

My name is Antony Constantinou. I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist working from my consulting room in the Kings Road area of Fulham and Chelsea. I also work with clients online on Skype, Zoom and offer walking therapy on request from Wimbledon and Wandsworth.

I studied In Psychodynamic Counselling at London’s Birkbeck College University and then went on to train In Person centred counselling at Middlesex University. After an extensive amount of experience within the NHS, charity sector and private sector, I went on to establish myself in private practice.

I continue to train and commit to continuous personal development to keep up with the code of ethics set by the BACP. I then undertook many pieces of training such as clinical assessment, drugs and alcohol abuse, anxiety and depression and personality disorders. I am currently completing further training at the renowned NHS Tavistock and Portman trust where I expand my knowledge and practice of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy.

I have been working from my practice In Fulham for over a year now where I meet with clients from all walks of life. Before this, I established my practice in the Covent Garden area of London where I met with clients who worked from the city and beyond. In addition to my clinical work in private practice, I provide professional consultation, group counselling and conducted health assessments within the private sector.

The initial consultation

The initial consultation is the first step you will make when contacting me. This is to help you have a clearer idea of what you are looking for, what the various kinds of therapies are, or even whether a talking therapy is right for you. Sometimes it can even be hard to know what is wrong, or whether your concerns are valid. The consultation will support me in understanding you and the best possible path forward through Psychodynamic exploration and assessment.

Why Counselling and Psychotherapy?

People decide to come to therapy with me for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, lack of confidence or are simply feeling stuck. In other situations, they are grieving the loss of a loved one or are struggling with a traumatic event.

Often, people want to learn new ways to manage their stress. This is especially true during periods of change and transition in their lives, such as marriage, pregnancy, parenting, moving, divorce, change of career, illness, and other major life moments.

I work with you to help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and inner conflicts. Key steps include identifying unhealthy, repetitive patterns and making connections with early life experiences. This will enable you to make positive changes and healthy decisions, reinforcing your strength and confidence.

Please contact me by phone or email to set up an initial meeting or if you have any questions or concerns which you would like to discuss in further detail.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Further information

My Approach:

My therapy practice is informed by psychodynamic psychotherapy, which involves an exploration of a person’s emotional and inner world, and seeks to understand the unhelpful patterns of relating and behaviour that can interfere with living a productive and meaningful life. In our work, together I will encourage you to explore emotions, behaviours, significant events and relationships, and consider the underlying roots or causes for your difficulties.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

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.
