"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us" 
Marianne Williamson



Therapy is a potentially transformative journey.

Whether you decide to work with me on a short or long-term framework I will offer you a safe, caring, non-judgemental space, where you can explore your thoughts, reflect on your emotions and try out new ways of being and relating.



I practice from my online consulting room, seeing clients who live in the UK and around the world. I work with adults and young people (18+), in English and Greek.

I abide by the Code of Ethics of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and the Code of Ethics of Metanoia Institute London.


how I can help you

My aim is to help improve the quality of my clients’ lives. The individuals that come to see me often note a persistent feeling of not belonging or fitting in, even when everything seems to be ok on the surface. Others describe spending years feeling not good enough, or unlovable.

For more than 14 years, I have been privileged to support clients in their journeys and witness their profound strength and resilience. Some of the issues that I have helped clients with include anxiety and depression, trauma, bereavement, shame and low self-esteem, feelings of emptiness and inadequacy, co-dependency issues and self-destructive behaviours.

I hope that I will be able to help you too to overcome whatever is stopping you from thriving in life, and live in a loving relationship with yourself, along with supportive and nourishing relationships with others.


therapy for identical and fraternal twins

In my years of practice I have also been privileged to work with, and support individuals who are identical or fraternal twins, and who have found this to be a source of happiness, or distress, or challenge.

Twins go through unique developmental processes. The most important of these relates to the way their identity is formed: firstly, through the special bond with their co-twin (twin identity), and secondly, through the attachment that each twin forms with the parents (individual identity). This is an important juncture in a twin's life, as it will become the blueprint of the way that he or she relates in life with others.

My aspiration, alongside any other goals that my twin clients have, is to support their process of finding the balance between developing an individual, different sense of self, without losing the special bond they share with their twin.


If you would like to see if my services can be of help to you, please feel free to contact me either by phone or email for an initial meeting.

I look forward to meeting with you.
