A. Katerina Alexandraki
Hi! My name is Katerina Alexandraki, I am a Clinical Psychologist and Art Psychotherapist living and working in London. I take a flexible approach with the people I work with, using psychological models that feel most suited for each individual. I enjoy being helpful, thinking together how to have more meaningful, happier lives. My focus of my work is relational: my standpoint is that psychological distress and pain are always connected to our relationships to others.
As a trained Art Therapist, I encourage my clients to explore their creative expressions and ideas – but this has to come from them. There are many people that prefer to use talking therapy only, and that is perfectly fine with me!
My private practice is in North and East London. I invite my clients for weekly sessions, for either brief or long term interventions.
I also offer online sessions, given the recent circumstances.
If you are interested in individual therapy sessions with me, please get in touch. I suggest we have an introductory discussion on the phone, before we meet in person.
Fees: £60 for online offer / £70 for face to face.
