Counselling & Psychotherapy for Individuals & Couples

Perhaps you are going through a period of challenges or transitions, want to work with yourself and gain more self-knowledge, want to revisit past experiences or make sense of your trauma, want to explore the way you relate to yourself and others or just feel that you aren’t living the life that you were meant to lead. Whatever the reason that has brought you to seek therapy - welcome, you are now here.

I am a Counselling Psychologist, licensed to practice both in Cyprus and the United Kingdom. Within the boundaries of a safe and confidential space in the city of Paphos, Cyprus, I offer  short and long-term psychological services to individuals and couples - assisting in making sense of the presenting issues, alongside the vast complexities of simply being human.
