Dr Panagiotis Bouzianis
My name is Panagiotis Bouzianis (Panos), I am a registered and Chartered Counselling Psychologist and a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist.
I work from within an overarching psychoanalytic model of therapy in order to help unconscious ideas and feelings emerge. This way you can explore the meaning behind your symptoms and what drives you as a person by linking significant past experiences to your current difficulties. I also work with cognitive behavioural interventions which help address immediate problems arising from stress, anxiety, avoidance, obsessions and compulsions. Both approaches approach how problems or symptoms start, and what keeps them going.
My special interests include disordered eating, negative body image, relationships, trauma and resilience, and working with the unconscious.
I specialize in evidence-based, contemporary Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.
I specialize in the psychological treatment of Eating Disorders.
I work with young people, adults and older adults.
I offer sessions in English and in Greek.

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.

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.
