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.
British Psychological Society
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.
