Marie-Louise Katsikare MBACP
I have an extensive professional background in private practice and in the NHS which has given me experience and insight into personal, family and professional difficulties.
As a person-centred therapist, I facilitate the sessions by listening without judgement and acknowledging your experiences and emotions you are feeling. I will guide the therapeutic process without interrupting or interfering with your process of self-discovery.
I also follow a psychodynamic approach to explore any childhood experiences that might affect your current thinking and behaviour. By looking at past experiences we will be able to make connections that will enable you to make informed choices about what behaviours you would like to change.
I primarily hold sessions face to face, but I also have availability for Skype sessions.
I am fluent in Greek and advanced in German and able to hold sessions in these languages.
I am bound by the ethics of good practice from the BACP and as such require ongoing supervision and continual professional development.
Training, qualifications & experience
Diploma in Attachment based Counselling.
BACP Registered member.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
