Katia Costa Demetriou: MBACP & Arts Psychotherapist (HCPC registered)
07985 630 260
Are you feeling stuck, lost, confused or isolated?
Are you struggling with symptoms of anxiety or depression?
Are relationships with family, friends or colleagues becoming more difficult to manage?
If so, Creative Psychotherapy provides a supportive space for you to express, explore and make sense of your feelings. What you share will be accepted without blame or judgement. You will be supported to develop greater tolerance and acceptance of your feelings, yourself and, by extension, others.
In addition to ‘talking therapy’, I offer opportunities to engage with the arts, breath and body work. These creative processes support our evolving wellbeing by facilitating greater flexibility and flow in our thoughts, feelings and behaviour. No previous experience of working with the arts is necessary.
As a qualified, experienced, integrative and creative, therapist, I have worked collaboratively with individuals of all ages, from diverse backgrounds, with a range of difficulties including anxiety, depression, bereavement, disordered eating, low self-esteem/confidence, work stress, loss, trauma, childhood neglect and abuse, anger, parenting and relationship issues, as well as the challenge of negotiating life stages and transitions.
