About me

Welcome to my profile. Below you will find some information about me and how I work. Please get in touch via e-mail to arrange an initial telephone consultation. My approach to psychotherapy is integrative and shaped by my professional as well as personal experiences. I am influenced by psychoanalytic, relational, and community psychology ideas and have an interest in 'the body', where some of our experiences are stored in non-verbal form. I believe that ultimately a therapist and a client co-create the healing potential that therapy has to offer.  I maintain a critical view of diagnoses and believe that therapy can help people understand themselves in social contexts such as the family unit, the workplace, and culture. This means that I try to resist what has been called ‘fast food therapy’, which would have us believe that the answer to all our problems is to be found exclusively in our childhoods or our heads. I have a specialist interest in working with dreams and narratives (i.e. stories we tell about ourselves and others tell about us) and use a variety of methods in my clinical work.

I am a Chartered Psychologist and an HCPC Registered Counselling Psychologist, currently working as a Senior Lecturer in Counselling Psychology at UWE Bristol. I abide by the BPS and HCPC codes of ethics and am in regular supervision for my clinical work. I am trained in humanistic, psychodynamic (Jungian, object-relations, relational strands), cognitive-behavioural (CBT), dialectical-behavioural (DBT), and multi-systemic (MST) models of therapy. I am currently training in Narrative Therapy and EMDR. Previously, I worked in NHS mental health services, a university student counselling centre, a psychoanalytic psychotherapy department, and a charity for young offenders and their families. I have worked clinically with people presenting with a wide range of mental health concerns and from many different backgrounds.

Finding ‘the right’ therapist is a very important part of the process and to that effect we can review our work together after 4-6 sessions to decide if and how we will continue working together.  I also offer more focused short-term work, which is usually around 8-12 sessions. The length of therapy depends on many factors, but generally speaking longer term work helps people that have experienced early childhood trauma, those who find themselves repeating problematic patterns of behaviour, and/or people who experience chronic distress, such as debilitating indecision and negative affect, without an obvious reason. Short-term work tends to benefit people who want a more ‘skills-based’ type of intervention, or those who have had therapy before and have a better sense of what type of help they need.

My fee is £65 for 50 minutes and I practice at the Bristol Talking Therapy Rooms (https://bristoltalkingtherapyrooms.co.uk) in central Bristol. EMDR sessions last longer and I tailor this intervention to your needs after an assessment. I have limited spaces for clinical supervision. I also offer therapy in Greek.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
