Each person is different with unique characteristics, experiences, processes and needs. There is not one form of therapy which is superior to the rest or effective for everyone. For this reason, psychological therapy often starts with an assessment which enables us to understand your difficulties holistically and accordingly form a treatment plan which feels right for you.
My goal is to adapt my clinical knowledge to your therapeutic needs, taking into consideration bio-psycho-social factors, clinical protocols, psychological theories and ethical guidelines. My work is based on the guidelines provided by the British Psychological Society, Health and Care Professions Council and Cyprus Psychologists Association.
Psychological therapy can take different forms, depending on your treatment goals, and aims to promote mental health and well-being. For example, we could work on:
- Increasing your self-awareness
- Identifying and managing emotional and relational patterns which cause distress
- Acquiring new skills (e.g. assertive communication, emotional regulation, etc.)
- Managing distress caused by thoughts, emotions, and behaviour
- Work-related stress
- Decreasing symptoms of psychological difficulties (e.g. anxiety symptoms, panic attacks, depression, phobias, etc.)
- General psychological support
- Exploring past and present issues, etc.
- Past traumatic experiences
The treatment plan and duration differ from client to client, as they focus on each person’s psychological needs. Therapy takes place in a warm, respectful, non-judgmental environment and aims to help you help yourself.
