Thomais Pelekanou BSc (Hons), PGDip, Psychotherapist-Counsellor BACP (accred)
Life’s many challenges can cause us to feel lost, stuck and unable to cope. A sudden loss, debilitating illness or traumatic experience can turn our lives upside down. Parenting issues, financial pressures and mental illness can jeopardize our families’ wellbeing. Relationship problems can cause anger, depression and loneliness. And work-related issues can lead to decreased satisfaction, burnout and poor performance. Whether short-term or deeply entrenched, our problems can rob us of our peace of mind, self-esteem and ability to create rewarding lives.
Now imagine how your life would change if you could
- overcome traumatic experiences
- create a more loving and cohesive family
- build more fulfilling relationships or
- better manage workplace issues.
As a Psychotherapist and Counsellor, I can help you make sense of your feelings and what you’re going through. We will work together to identify emotional triggers, understand unhelpful patterns and behaviours and decipher conflicting messages in personal and professional situations. We will also identify the things you can change and develop ways to change them.
I have nearly 20 years of experience helping people from diverse backgrounds solve their problems and reach their full potential. I also help employees in the financial sector manage the circumstances—such as high-stress levels, long work hours and excessive demands—that can have a detrimental impact on their physical and psychological health. I provide a safe and supportive space where clients’ individuality is respected, and I use a tailor-made, holistic approach to help them reach awareness and resolution.
Things might be hard right now, but healing and growth are within reach. I can help you regain your power and realise your goals. You can call me at 074 07062 736 or send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a consultation.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority.
