I am an award-winning Consultant Clinical Psychologist, associate fellow and chartered psychologist & scientist of the British Psychological Society, and registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and the European Federation of Psychologists' Association. For my services I won the title Mental Health Psychologist of the Year 2016 by Medical LiveWire. My professional expertise in offering psychological services is based on firm academic and clinical knowledge. This has been gained through a rigorous education from reputable universities alongside research, lectureship and extensive clinical experience within the NHS and other private health care centres in the UK and Greece. (See more details here: http://myprivatetherapy/about/)
In my work, I focus on adolescents, adults and couples. 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 studying and physical health. I love working with business professionals, highly successful executives, students, as well as medical patients alongside their families or caregivers.
I specialise in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and tailor each intervention to an individual client by complementing this with techniques from other approaches, such as mindfulness, motivational interviewing, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT), and schema therapy. My expertise in neuropsychology provides me with a valuable additional method of assessment and the ability to offer specialist advice where cognitive weaknesses, such as memory and attentional difficulties, trouble individuals in their everyday life.
I enjoy a reputation of warmth and informality during my professional work, while achieving effective outcomes for my clients.
I strictly abiding by the standards of conduct, performance and ethics of HCPC and BPS.
