Margarita Amvrosiou Psychodynamic Counsellor MBACP
I am a qualified practitioner with a broad range of experience, working in private practice. I offer once weekly individual Psychodynamic Counselling for adults which can be open ended, long term work or I offer short term, time limited sessions. I provide a warm, non-judgemental and confidential therapeutic environment for individuals to explore their thoughts, feelings and everyday challenges.
I work in an empathic, relational way and provide a safe space for the exploration of thoughts and feelings in order to develop a therapeutic relationship based on trust and security. Together we can make links to your past experiences with the aim to make the unconscious more conscious, leading to more self awareness and ultimately to significant changes enabling you to live a more fulfilled and satisfied life.
How counselling can help
You may be seeking therapy because you are experiencing difficult feelings and emotions such as stress, anxiety, anger or low self esteem. You may have relationship difficulties or work related issues. You may have had a recent bereavement or are experiencing the impact of abuse, either as a child or as an adult. Our work together will be confidential and is a way of giving yourself time to reflect, process and make positive changes in your life.
I believe that psychological well-being is important for people in order that they can lead full, satisfying and creative lives. My aim is to help each individual to reach a healthy outcome. In this way I support clients to develop clarity and insight into their difficulties, whilst enabling them to have the skills to deal more effectively with the challenges they are facing.
The values of my practice are founded on the principles of respect, inclusiveness and providing appropriate support, tailored to the individuals needs and I achieve this through integrating practical and theoretical approaches.

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
