For the past 23 years, I have been working as a Relate licensed practitioner and independent counsellor/psychotherapist to enable couples and individuals to resolve issues over a broad spectrum of relationship difficulties - both emotional and sexual.
People who find themselves unhappy or who wish to change their stuck or unfulfilled relationships, often seek a safe and confidential place to explore their concerns. Trying to identify these issues with friends and relatives can be difficult. In these cases it is important to find a supportive professional who can draw on their knowledge and experience, and offer the possibility of informed choices for the future.
The process of counselling/psychotherapy is very personal to each one of us, depending on the reasons that make us embark on this journey. These can include:
- anxiety and lack of motivation
- lack of communication with partner and a sense of isolation
- sexual difficulties, incompatibility with partners, loss of desire
- issues around pregnancy, birth, post-natal depression
- unresolved issues with family of origin
- relocation to a new country, cross-cultural issues
- professional stress and its emotional impact
- aftermath of separation and bereavement
- life transitions
Training, qualifications & experience
I originally trained with Relate as a psychodynamic practitioner. Over the years I have drawn on a number of additional trainings at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships (TCCR), leading to an MA in Attachment, Psychoanalysis and the Couple Relationship, 2011. My work has been published in Couple and Family Psychoanalysis, Vol 1 No.1.
My psychosexual training was with London Marriage Guidance (LMG) and I am a member of COSRT. I have worked extensively with heterosexual and same sex couples, and with individuals.
I am a Senior Accredited Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and a Registered Member of UKCP. I abide by their ethical and professional guidelines and have professional liability insurance in place.
I am fully bilingual in Greek/English and offer workshops/trainings in both London and Athens, where I also practice. During the last few years I have been a researcher at the Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships studying for a Doctorate in Couple Psychotherapy. I have a particular interest in working with couples facing particular life transitions, and who do not share the same cultural or ethnic background.

When you contact me, either by phone or email I will offer you an initial consultation free of charge. This will give us an opportunity to meet, to explore current relationship concerns, and to make a decision about whether to begin working together.
It is not unusual for prospective clients not to be able to formulate clearly what changes they want to make, or to identify the exact cause of their unhappiness or feelings of being stuck. This initial consultation is often very helpful in order to gain a different perspective on the problems.
Should we decide that counselling/psychotherapy is the way forward, my fees vary depending on whether you wish for a daytime appointment or an evening appointment and whether you will be attending as an individual or as a couple.
I am able to offer a limited number of daytime sessions at a reduced rate for students and trainee counsellors. My fees are subject to review.
Session fees range from £60 - £120.
My consulting room has disabled access. It is very easily accessible by public transport. The nearest Underground station is Finchley Road (Jubilee, Metropolitan lines) and numerous buses pass by.
