About me

My approach to therapy is based on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) principles and theories. I work in a person centered way which is tailored to the needs of the individual. My focus is to build a therapeutic relationship based on acceptance, unconditional respect and positive change.

Every day living can be overwhelming at times. Being in a distressing situation as such, can allow you to start accepting who you truly are and to reach out to the life you want.

We will work together to make sense of these experiences and how you can use them in order to make the changes you want. The desired outcome is to be more kind to yourself and utilize the skills to become your own therapist.

I am currently working in a NHS specialist psychotherapy service that offers treatment to people with chronic and complex presentations. Over the last seven years, I have worked with individuals with common difficulties around depression and anxiety. I have worked in a variety of different psychological services in the National Health Service and well- known charity organisations.

I work hard in delivering evidence- based Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I treat adults with a wide range of mood and anxiety disorders and every day psychological issues, including:

  • Mild, moderate, severe and recurring depression
  • Anxiety (Panic, Generalised Anxiety, Social Anxiety, Health Anxiety, specific phobias)
  • OCD
  • PTSD
  • Stress
  • Bereavement
  • Self- esteem
  • Chronic pain

I am a warm-natured person and I have passion for the work I do. I am genuinely interested in listening to you and working together towards reaching your goals.

I offer therapy in English and Greek.

Please contact me for my current availability.
