Psychotherapist and Counsellor

About me

A warm and creative Psychotherapist and Counsellor, with years of experience working with issues like anxiety, depression, self-harm, eating disorders and other. My approach is Integrative, which means that I draw on a range of therapeutic thinking and models (Humanistic, Psychodynamic, CBT etc) in order to accommodate the individual needs of the person I work with. In addition, my foundation was on Art Psychotherapy which gave me the ability to use tools such as Drawing, Music, Sandtray and other in my work, if that is something you would be interest to experiment with (you do not have to be an artist, I am not!).

Part of my training has been Child and Adolescent orientated, which gave me the skills needed to work with children, adolescent and young adults. And I feel that this part of my training gave more depth to my work with adults.

My style is open and respectful of my client and I hold a space for them, where they will be heard and where they may explore any issues they bring, at a pace that is comfortable for them. And as a strong believer in race, culture, gender, sexuality and relationship diversity and equality, I welcome people of all ages and backgrounds in my practice.

I can work with you in English or Greek, face to face at Finchley Central or online via Zoom. I also offer One-Off Consultations and Single Session Therapy. Please give me a call if you are unsure which service will be best for you.

*If you are in crisis and need immediate support please contact Samaritans at 116 123. The calls are free and the service is available 24 hours 7 days a week.*

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Accredited register membership

Key details

DBS check

In England and Wales, the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS, formerly known as CRB) carry out criminal records checks for individuals working with vulnerable groups, such as children. To find out more, visit gov.uk , or contact this professional directly

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

I am happy to come to you in case your circumstances make it difficult to travel, within reasonable distance.
