Philip Panayiotou MBACP (Accred) Counsellor/Psychotherapist. Counselling for men
I am a qualified BACP accredited Integrative Therapeutic Counsellor and Psychotherapist. This means I use different theoretical models to suit each individual, using mainly Psychodynamic, Person Centred, CBT and Transpersonal methods.
I have a specialist interest and experience in working with men and men's issues. I fully understand the pressures faced by men today and how opening up and talking about problems can be very difficult. There is a reason 8 out of 10 suicides in the UK are men, I believe this is because we as men are not talking about our struggles because of the tired old messages to 'man up' and 'boys don't cry', this leads to suppressing our emotions which can have devastating consequences.
I have worked with many people who have experienced low mood, feelings of anxiety and depression, stress, feeling totally overwhelmed by life, low self-esteem and problems in their relationships as well as many other issues.
I am also experienced in working with addictions including substance misuse and process addictions such as codependency. I have experience working in residential addiction treatment centres in Surrey and Centrel London where I delivered group therapy and one to one personal therapy.
We will focus on how having a healthy relationship with yourself will enable you to have healthy relationships with others. Helping a person practice self-love and self-care to establish healthy boundaries is a big part of the work I do so you can start fulfilling your potential and become more content in your life.
I also run a Men's Therapy Group, which is an 8 week programme exploring men's issues. Each week there will be a suggested topic such as Masculinity, Sex & Sexuality, Fathers & Fatherhood, Vulnerability and Attitudes Towards Women. For information about dates and fees please contact me.
