I am a fully qualified REBT[1], CBT[2] and EMDR[3] psychotherapist. I am also HCPC Registered Psychologist. I offer therapy in English and Greek.

Due to the Covid-19 crisis , I am also able to offer remote therapy.

This includes online and telephone sessions.

I work with individuals and groups at the Priory Psychiatric Hospital offering individual and group therapy for a wide range of emotional problems such as Depression, Anxiety and Panic Disorders as well as PTSD[4], OCD[5] and Eating Disorders.

I adhere to the HCPC BPS (British Psychological Society), BABCP (British Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Psychotherapies), AREBT (Association of Rational Emotive and Behavioural Therapy) and Association of EMDR ethical framework of good practice and I am committed to offering a high standard of professional therapeutic care. I work using the Rational and Cognitive behavioural approach as well as psychodrama approaches to psychotherapy. I am a member of the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science. I have been trained extensively in ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy). I can guide you to develop cognitive, emotional and behavioural strategies that will contribute towards preventing any further psychological problems as well as being more positive. Psychotherapy is a challenging but life changing process which is based on empathy, unconditional acceptance and understanding in a safe and confidential environment.
