Dr Panagiotis Bouzianis
My name is Panagiotis Bouzianis (Panos), I am a registered and Chartered Counselling Psychologist and a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
I will help you identify what maintains your difficulties, keeping you stuck, but also what drives, strengthens and motivates you. I work through a psychoanalytic and a cognitive behavioural model to help address practical problems arising from anxiety and depression but also to identify unconscious patterns of thoughts, emotions and behaviour.
My special interests include gender and sexuality, relationship ruptures, trauma and resilience, meaning in life, and working with the unconscious.
I specialize in evidence-based, contemporary Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
I have specialist experience in the psychological treatment of Eating Disorders.
I work with young people, adults and older adults.
I offer sessions in English and in Greek.

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.

Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
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.
British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies
The BABCP is the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in the UK.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in the practice, theory or development of CBT. BABCP also provides accreditation for CBT therapists.
BABCP accredited members adhere to the Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics in the Practice of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies, and are willing to be scrutinised in this adherence as required.
Accredited register membership
Accredited Register Scheme
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
Areas of counselling I deal with
My fee for an initial assessment is £65 and it can last from 45 to 60 minutes. Initials assessments are always face-to-face.
My standard fee for weekly on-going sessions is £80 but concessions may be available. Sessions can last from 40 to 60 minutes, depending on the material explored each time. Sometimes session duration might need to vary in order to punctuate a particularly important question, dilemma, or point of stuckness.
Remote sessions may be offered on a case-by-case basis.
Fortnightly sessions are costed higher than weekly sessions.
There are concessions if you are a clinical trainee.
You may be self-funding or covered by private healthcare insurance - I work with AXA and AVIVA.
Initial assessment fees are paid either online prior to the session or by cash at the start of the session.
Cancellations/ Missed Sessions Policy: To avoid being charged for the session, please contact me at least 48 hours before the appointment time. If you miss an appointment or cancel within the 48 hour period you will still be charged for the hour unless I have another hour slot available within the same week.
I accept referrals from GPs, psychiatrists and other mental health professionals.
Please visit my website for up-to-date information.
For an initial session (an assessment) you can call me on the phone listed or send me an email. During this session we can talk about what you want to get out of your counselling or therapy and which issues you wish to tackle. From then on we can set up the frequency and date of your sessions.
