Dr Patapia Tzotzoli, BSc (Hons), MSc, MPhil, DClinPsy - HCPC & EuroPsy reg'ed
I imagine a world where we understand and openly embrace mental health in our lives, because the relationship with our mental health determines the quality of our lives and those of others. For years I have dedicated every day of my life to understand and improve people’s psychological health and wellbeing. Let’s take on this task for you together.
I am a Clinical Psychologist specialising in adult mental health and couples therapy. I specialise in assisting people to overcome difficulties, to work towards optimal personal effectiveness, and to improve their overall quality of life. I am particularly interested in difficulties that stem from relationships (with self or others), work or studies. Always evidence-based, I develop therapeutic plans tailored around your personal circumstances. Together we work in a relaxed friendly atmosphere for either short- or long- term therapeutic sessions. Your contribution will guarantee an adventurous and rewarding journey through the world of thoughts, emotions and behaviour.
To date, for my services I was honoured with the Mental Health Psychologist of the Year 2016 award by Medical LiveWire and the Mental Health Psychologist of the Year UK & Best CBT Practice UK by the Global Health and Pharma Magazine Awards.

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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
I teach psychology and counselling students through live cases, where appropriate, and I offer clinical supervision to trainees and experienced psychotherapists, psychologists and counsellors who want to further the quality of their services and improve their personal competence.
