About me

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 and research base. 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 experience neurodevelopmental difficulties, emotion dysregulation, gender dysphoria, eating disorders and people who may have experienced difficult, harmful or unfulfilling relationships, and perhaps continue to do so. I have 17 years’ experience assessing and treating different client groups with mild and complex mental health issues and emotional difficulties. I have worked in numerous settings in the NHS (CAMHS), special 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 (MSc), TF- CBT, Compassion Focused Therapy and gender dysphoria. I'm also an ADOS-2 trained clinician therefore I can undertake specialist ASC assessments. I'm also a BPS’s Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisor (RAPPS). I regularly apply Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) skills, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) skills and Compassion Focused Therapy in my clinical work.
