Dr Argyro (Iro) Ioannou - CPsychol, HCPC, UKCP
I am an experienced and fully accredited Counselling Psychologist (CPsychol & HCPC), Psychotherapist (UKCP reg.) and Clinical Supervisor.
I am currently working as a psychotherapist in the NHS, with clients that face life-changing health issues, and in my private practice. I am also providing clinical supervision to trainees of Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy programmes.
Over the last ten years I have worked in a wide variety of counselling settings, both in Athens and in London, including the public mental health sector, charities, private clinics, university and forensic settings.
I have completed the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy, from Middlesex University, and I am committed to continuously pursuing my personal and professional development by attending seminars and workshops, such as in Mindfulness and Focusing, as well as specialised training for various mental health issues.
I have extensive experience in working with clients facing a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, traumatic experiences, addiction, eating disorders, bereavement, obsessive and compulsive disorder, personality disorders, social and relational difficulties, confidence and low self-esteem issues, and more.
My training is integrative which means that I draw upon a range of different therapeutic models, such as CBT and Psychodynamic, but is essentially Humanistic and Existential.
I believe that supervision is an opportunity for the therapist to reflect on their work, to become more aware of the therapeutic processes and relational dynamics, and to gain greater confidence in their theoretical knowledge and practical skills.
I offer sensitive, respectful and ethically aware supervision sessions, and I actively support the trainees' professional development.
I offer online and telephone supervision sessions. The sessions last 50 minutes and the fee is £60 per session.
