Approach

I work in a non-judgemental way and I firmly believe that emotional distress is often the mind’s way of coping with the many stressors, fears and difficulties that happens in life. As a clinical psychologist, I work empathically but with clear direction and with an active approach to therapy. Therapy takes work and commitment, and this can feel difficult and scary at times, I understand that. We will work at a pace that feels both comfortable and productive. Treatment will always be tailored to you and your specific needs, hopes and goals. I abide to clear codes of conduct and only offer therapies that have a strong evidence base.

Experience

I am an experienced and friendly Chartered and HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist who enjoys working with children, adolescents and adults. I have a particular interest in working with people who have relationship difficulties (with parents, siblings, partners, peers or children), who experience neurodevelopmental difficulties, anxiety, anger, depression within their relationships, and people who may have experienced difficult, harmful or unfulfilling relationships, and perhaps continue to do so. I have many years’ experience assessing and treating different client groups with mild and complex mental health and emotional difficulties. I have worked in numerous settings in the NHS, education settings and private practice. I am fluent in Greek, English and French and therefore I can offer therapeutic work in these languages if required.

So that I can offer a broad choice of treatments, I have completed additional training in Mentalization based Therapy (MBT), psychodynamic psychotherapy and Trauma Focused CBT which means I can offer help for symptoms of trauma, personality issues and relational distress. I also regularly apply Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Systemic models in my clinical work. I am able to draw on a range of different therapeutic models and treatments to best suit your individual needs.
