Welcome to my website!
I am a Counselling Psychologist, registered with the HCPC and a member of the British Psychological Society.
I work with clients with a wide range of difficulties, including anxiety, low mood, mood swings, self-harm, medically unexplained aches and pains, relational and interpersonal problems and life transition. I offer both medium and long term therapy in English and Greek.
My training in Psychology means that I can draw from a number of different modalities, such as psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural and humanistic, and offer an integrative approach to my clients.
I will tailor my approach to each client and offer an individualised therapeutic experience.
I am particularly interested in language, the words we use to describe emotion or to talk to ourselves, as well as the bodily experience of emotion.
I have extensive experience working with a variety of clients in diverse settings, such as addiction treatment services, local GP practices, private psychiatric units, the NHS and the charity sector. I am the Head of Psychological Therapies at Mind in the City, Hackney and Waltham Forest, one of the largest local Mind associations, leading a large team of counsellors, psychotherapists, psychologists and trainees.
Outside of my work at Mind, I practice privately and I am interested in research, particularly in areas regarding body image, sense of self, embodiment and self harm. My latest study was focused on the experience of marks and scars as a result of self-harm.
