Christina Grekioti, DipHE, MA, MBACP Registered Counsellor in Sheffield
Counselling can be of great help during times of upset but also when we feel stuck with a particular problem. Engaging in talking therapy can help you gain valuable insight into yourself and the situations you find yourself in. Counselling creates a safe, holding space for you to access your inner resources and bring forth your potential.
My aim is to offer you a space where you can express yourself without worrying about being judged or criticised. I will work with you to facilitate your growth and development, to assist you in finding the best ways that suit you in dealing with the difficulties in life.
I am an Integrative Counsellor, in this school of thought the therapist is trained to work with more than one approach and thus tailoring techniques and knowledge to the individual needs of the client.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have a BACP accredited Diploma in Integrative Counselling and an MA in Philosophy. I am a registered member of BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) and I work within their ethical framework for good practice.
My counselling experience alongside with my work in Mental Health spans over 10 years and covers a wide range of issues such as anxiety and depression, anger management, relationship and work related problems, low self-esteem and assertiveness.
I have worked extensively with individuals suffering from depression and suicidal thoughts, acute anxiety and phobias as well as people who have experienced abuse and trauma at some point in their lives. I have completed further training with Babette Rothschild on the "The Mind and Body of Safer Trauma Therapy".
My studies in Philosophy allow me to work with existential struggles, such as loss of purpose in life, bereavement and life threatening illness. Having worked as a volunteer for Cruse Bereavement Care, I have completed a sixty hour course to further my awareness and understanding of the issues experienced by those in grief.
In addition, I have 6 years extensive experience and training working with people affected by problem gambling as an associate counsellor of GamCare; a charity that offers support to people affected by problem gambling.
Finally, I have a keen interest in practicing and incorporating mindfulness into my work by offering a grounded and open presence and when appropriate offering mindfulness techniques.
