I work full time as a psychotherapist in the NHS and in my private practice in Soho, Central London. I have extensive experience delivering individual therapy to adults suffering from mild to severe mental health issues. I have worked in various settings offering short and long term therapy in both English and Greek.

I am registered with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and accredited with the British Association for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (BABCP), and I abide to the Code of Ethics and procedures of both organizations. In order to maintain my work at high standards I am regularly supervised by accredited professionals. I also keep myself up to date with the most recent research in the psychotherapeutic area and regularly attending seminars and workshops. 

In addition to being a therapist, I am also a speaker promoting mental health and wellbeing.  I have been one of the main speakers on ‘Ascertaining the psychosocial needs of refugees in order to facilitate recovery and rehabilitation’ which was organised by Syn-Politeia 2017, Vulnerable Social Groups: Synergies and Perspectives, Xenios Polis and the representation of the  European Commission to Greece. Furthermore, my research thesis on ‘Therapist’s Experience of Client-Initiated Termination in Long-term Therapy’ was chosen by the BACP Counselling and Psychotherapy Research Conference and was presented on the 23rd Annual Conference in 2016. Throughout the years, I have been awarded by the Chief Executive and the Trust's Chair of Camden and Islington NHS Foundation Trust for providing Outstanding Care in 2015 as well as from Westminster MIND for upholding the quality of the service in 2009.
