My focus is to listen to you and to help you find a way of developing understanding for the issues that concern you. The work is mainly done with a psychodynamic approach (see below), making clients aware that problems and distress in the present may have originated in their earlier life experiences. Understanding this is the first step towards achieving a change in awareness, perception and relationships.
If preferred, I offer sessions in Greek and in French.
What is psychotherapy?
Psychodynamic psychotherapy is a therapeutic process that helps patients understand and resolve their problems by increasing awareness of their inner world and its influence over relationships both past and present. It differs from most other therapies in aiming for deep-seated change in personality and emotional development (British Psychoanalytic Council).
Do you need counselling or psychotherapy?
Counselling and psychotherapy are often considered to overlap in a number of ways. The key difference between the two lies in the recommended time. Counselling usually refers to a brief treatment that centres around behaviour patterns. Psychotherapy focuses on working with clients for a longer term and draws from insight into emotional problems and difficulties.
