I am originally from Cyprus, and have been living in the UK for over 21 years. My first experiences of therapy were deeply transformative, profound and healing, and benefitted me greatly. It was during this period that I realised that I wanted to become a counsellor myself. I trained as a counsellor four years ago and have worked and volunteered in many charities such as Mind (within an NHS setting) and Cruse Bereavement Care. I am currently working for the Woman’s Trust charity focusing on victims of domestic abuse.
I have experience of offering short-term and long-term therapy to clients from diverse backgrounds, race, class, gender and sexual orientation; and of working with individuals with complex issues.
I hold a Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling and I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). I abide by the BACP Ethical Framework and I am deeply committed to my on-going professional and personal development. I go to conferences for career progression, regularly attend supervision and have my own therapy.
I have experience of working with a wide range of clients with various issues including anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and self-confidence, relationship issues and difficulties, trauma, loss & grief, work-related issues, domestic abuse and gender and sexuality issues.
