Yanni Spiro PG Dip (MBACP) - Couple and Individual Psychotherapist
I am a fully qualified individual and couple psychotherapist offering relationship counselling and psychotherapy.
I offer a safe and non-judgemental space where I aim to help you reach a better understanding of yourself and your relationships while developing a more creative way of relating which allows room for lasting change.
I believe it is important to balance the here-and-now with the conversation with the past; paying attention to old material and repetitions which impact on our present. In this way we can consider the conscious and unconscious processes which are being manifested.
I offer online counselling for individuals and couples who are unable to attend face-to-face sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained and worked at the Tavistock Relationships (previously known as Tavistock Centre for Couple Relationships), a world renowned institute in the field of relationship therapy.
I completed a PG Dip in Couple and Individual Psychodynamic Counselling and Psychotherapy (TR and UEL). I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (MBACP). I also completed the Infant Observation module of the MA Psychoanalytic Couple Psychotherapy.
I am very experienced in short term solution focused as well as open ended work and have worked with a diverse range of clients including many individuals and couples from the LGBTQ community.
I have worked with issues including difficulties communicating, high conflict, fear of difference, infidelity, grief, loss, infertility, the impact following the birth of a child, sexual difficulties, parenting issues, empty nest syndrome, depression, trauma, anxiety, identity, sexual identity and fluidity.
I offer a place of holding and containing in a safe and non-judgemental space. I am empathetic but also challenging.
