Dr Nikolaos Souvlakis (BPS CPsychol, MBACP Accred. & Reg., EAC acc)
There are times in our life that we feel that challenges and problems have begun to take control over our lives, we feel stuck, confused, in crisis, during these times it is good to make a regular confidential space in our lives to talk to a psychotherapist.
As a psychotherapist and analytically trained I strongly believe that there are many options and possibilities in order to move forward as there is not a fixed map. Sometimes this lack of fixedness might seem like a void, like a trap.
In our work together we will explore stories you bring about yourself and others; what they might be saying or not; what you return to in them that inspires you or troubles you. Often people find healing through the process of talking to someone in confidence for the first time results in a considerable better well BEING and mental health. I do not believe that one type of person or life style is less important or valid that another and I do not sit in judgment in any kind.
I would encourage you to see a period of therapy as a time in your life where you devote a significant period to in-depth work on your thoughts and feelings about yourself, your place int he world and your spiritual life.
I would love to hear from you so please feel free to phone, text or email me to discuss amd arrange an Initial Assessment.
An Initial Assessment is arranged at your convenience and lasts about an hour. During the assessment you can talk through your issue(s) and we can assess your needs together and also ask questions about the process.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
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.
