Dr Iro Ioannou, CPsychol (HCPC, UKCP reg)
Life is often described as a journey which, while at times can be interesting and joyful, at other times it can leave us feeling lost, lonely, depressed and/or anxious. The focus of our work will be to explore the issues and concerns you might have towards your life, in a safe and respectful environment. We will work collaboratively, and I can help you gain a better understanding of this journey, and how you can choose to live it more fully and with greater contentment.
I am an experienced Chartered Counselling Psychologist (CPsychol & HCPC), Psychotherapist and Supervisor, registered with the UKCP. I am currently working as a psychotherapist in the NHS, with clients that face life-changing health issues, and in my private practice. I am also providing clinical supervision to trainees of Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy.
Over the last ten years I have worked in a wide variety of counselling settings, both in Athens and in London. I have extensive experience in working with clients facing a variety of issues, including depression, anxiety, traumatic experiences, addiction, eating disorders, bereavement, obsessive and compulsive disorder, social and relational issues, and more.
I offer counselling in English and Greek.
The therapeutic process
Everyone is unique, so every issue you will bring to therapy will be treated with respect, care and confidentiality. This is a chance for you to discuss what really matters to you in a safe space, where you can talk openly without tension or fear of recrimination. Working together can help you identify and challenge old, unhelpful patterns, gain greater acceptance, and open your life to new possibilities.
I have completed the Doctorate in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy (DCPsych) and have attended specialised training for various mental health issues. My training is integrative which means that I draw upon a range of different therapeutic models, such as CBT, Psychodynamic, and Mindfulness, but is essentially Humanistic and Existential. This means that I value your unique and subjective experience, and through a collaborative relationship, our therapeutic sessions will be tailored to meet your unique needs and concerns.
£70 per individual session.
Concessions for students and low income earners may be available.
We can work together short-term (6-12 sessions), focusing on a specific issue, or long-term and open-ended.
The duration of the session is 50 minutes and takes place at the same time and day each week.
You can contact me via email or phone. If I am unable to answer the phone, please leave a message with your information and I will contact you as soon as possible.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you have any queries or would like any further clarification regarding counselling and psychotherapy.
