Aris Papaefstathiou - Counselling for trans-identifying individuals

About me

I offer counselling to individuals who identify as transgender, non-binary, gender-queer, gender-questioning and gender-fluid. I work with anyone wanting to explore their identity, regardless of whether they are considering or undergoing transition.

My practice also caters for partners, family members or anyone close to someone who is exploring their gender identity.

I provide a confidential, accepting and safe therapeutic space to explore any discomfort, confusion, distress and curiosity around gender identity. I believe it is also important to celebrate identity in a supportive environment.

I am a qualified, BACP-registered counsellor based in London and Greece. I am a trans man; my preferred pronouns are ‘he/him/his’.

Currently based in North East London, I offer sessions in-person, or online / remote sessions, over secure video-conferencing. Sessions can be in English or Greek.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have completed a BA (Hons) and Diploma in Person Centred Counselling at Metanoia Institute / Middlesex University, London (BACP-accredited course).

I have worked as a counsellor at Brighton & Hove LGBT Switchboard and at Metro, London.
I am receiving regular clinical supervision; hold full professional insurance.
