Yanni Spiro PG Dip (MBACP) - Couple and Individual Psychotherapist
I am a fully qualified individual and couple psychotherapist offering face-to-face and online 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 work with issues including difficulties anxiety, depression, 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, trauma, 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.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
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. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
