Nikolaos Souvlakis ( MBACP Accred. & Reg., EAC acc, MBPsS)
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 si goof 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 firt time results in a considerable better well beaing 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 signitificant period to in-depth work on your thoughts and feelings about yourself, your place int he world and your spiritual life.
