Antony Constantinou Counsellor and Psychotherapist
My name is Antony, I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist working from my private practice in South West London.
I believe that all of us at some point in our lives experience difficulties, it may be due to a painful event such as bereavement, relationship difficulties or a more generalised feeling of low self-esteem, depression or anxiety. Sometimes sharing difficult feelings with friends or family doesn't seem like an option for fear of judgement or shame, and struggling alone may not enable a positive resolution.
Life can present us with many challenges which may make us feel overwhelmed and unable to cope. These can interfere with our day to day living, create problems in our relationships and may lead to anxiety, low self-esteem, depression or other problems that can affect our well-being.
I offer a warm, friendly and confidential space for you to talk through any problems you may be facing and help you make sense of things. I will support you in gaining a better understanding of yourself whilst supporting you with the changes you wish to make.
So, if you want to feel differently, and wish for a happier and more fulfilled life, exploring your difficulties through counselling and psychotherapy can lead to helping you in a powerful and profound way.
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.

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.

Concessions offered for
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.
