Avraam Karagiannis MBACP(Accred), MA, Cert. Supervision.
I am a fully qualified BACP accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist. I have been working clinically with clients since 2010 and offer counselling/psychotherapy to both individuals and couples. I provide a non judgemental environment which enables clients to explore the issues they are facing in a space where they feel safe and supported. I will help you to untangle your thoughts and feelings, to make sense of who you are as a person so that you are better able to address the issues which are troubling you.
We sometimes use words such as anxiety, depression and stress when we are trying to describe how we feel but the reality is that these feelings affect each person in a different way.
The circumstances which have caused us to have anxiety, depression or stress are so unique to our own life and exploring those in therapy could help to understand their impact on us and our relationships.
If you are unsure about something please feel free to drop me a line and we can explore together how to move foreword and to discuss how counselling may help.I am currently working as an independent practitioner and in addition to my clinical work I teach counselling at Anglia Ruskin University in association with Renew Counselling.
I am also a qualified supervisor and provide Clinical Supervision for healthcare professionals and Professional Supervision with a particular focus on the Education sector.
I practice from Suffolk IP14.
Training, qualifications & experience
The fact that you are looking at this website suggests that you are well on the way to making the first step in getting better. It is a big thing for some people to admit that they need help and that they are suffering from issues such as depression, stress, anxiety or having relationship difficulties.
Choosing the right counsellor is very important and therefore taking the time to find a therapist that you will feel comfortable with is crucial. It may be that you want to meet a couple of therapists before you make a decision.
What should you be looking for? Its important you chose a counsellor who is qualified, experienced and a member of an organization such as BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) or UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy). I offer a safe and confidential environment and as an Accredited member of BACP I operate to their ethical and professional standards.
I work with all ages from 16 upwards, male and female clients and couples.
