About me

Has the Covid-19 global pandemic affected your mental wellbeing? Are you are feeling stuck, and panic and depression have taken over your life?  Are you experiencing anxiety, or are you having relationship or family issues?  I’m here to help. I’m a highly trained and experienced psychotherapist and counsellor who will work with you to help you face challenges and overcome negative situations.

How I can help:

I provide a safe and confidential space to work regularly together to gain insight about the issues causing you concern. I can work with you on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of enabling you to live your life more fully. I am an experienced therapist with consulting rooms in Bow (Mile End) next to the City and Central London.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at WPF Therapy, one of the most esteemed counselling and psychotherapy institutes in London. I also work for the NHS (Newham Talking Therapies) as a psychotherapist and I have worked at The Prince’s Trust as their Mental Health Advisor for the UK.

Further information

My approach

My focus is to listen to you and to help you find a way of developing understanding for the issues that concern you. I work mainly with a psychoanalytic/psychodynamic approach making clients aware that problems and distress in the present may have originated in their earlier life experiences. Understanding this is the first step towards achieving a change in awareness, perception and relationships.

If preferred, I can offer sessions in Greek and in French.

Accessibility

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.
