HEAL - GROW - RESURFACE

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.

*ascenth is the combination of the word ascent: the act of rising to the surface when diving and the word therapy

A BIT ABOUT THERAPY

An endeavour to know onesel  

Therapy can be a space of collaboration, where you can become more aware of the outdated patterns that make your life feel unbearably difficult. A space which promotes healing and growth and aims to enact changes which will increase your enjoyment of life.

 

It is essential to keep in mind that therapy is not an instant treatment and by no means will work as a magic pill or a quick fix. In the contrary, therapy is a healing process that requires participation and investment, in order to bring change in the overall ways of seeing and being.

WELCOME

Whatever you are going through, you do not have to go through it alone

Life can be challenging at times and seeking help and support, can leave one feeling exposed and vulnerable. Wherever you are coming from and whatever you are going through, you do not have to be alone. Together, we can explore where you are and by working with your challenges, divert your focus towards self-discovery, healing and empowerment.


I hold a compassionate place for those who have felt that their lives have been leading them, silenced, with no identity, always trapped in the expectations of who and where they should be - frequently defined by others. I specialise in and have set my professional focus on working with people who have lost their meaning.


I welcome diversity of all kinds. Being raised and having lived in different cultures, I understand the complexities arising in finding one’s identity and having the feeling of never really fitting in. My approach is warm and intuitive and my therapeutic perspective is inclusive, holistic and informed by evidence-based therapeutic modalities.
