Counselling in English in Glyfada
Welcome, my name is Konstandina Polychronopoulou and I am a Counsellor, Psychotherapist, Psychologist, Dating and Relationship Coach. I also work as a Mindfulness and other Therapeutic Meditations Facilitator.
I work in private practice with individuals and couples. I work both long term and short term. I offer Counselling in English and in Greek, and I am seeing clients both face to face in Glyfada and Online.
I understand how difficult it can feel to talk to a therapist about your struggles and desires. This can be made easier with the empathetic, caring and non-judgemental therapeutic space that I offer.
I believe that the therapeutic relationship can act as a catalyst to facilitate growth, emotional containment and change.
I am a qualified, highly experienced Counsellor and Registered Member of BACP.
I hold a Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling Psychology (7th year‐doctoral level), a course in Counselling and Psychotherapy and a course in Mindfulness from Regent's University in London, UK.
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology from Deree College, the American College in Greece.
I am also continuously involved with learning and self development.
I have more than 10 years of experience as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist within my Private Practice and other organizations such as Reflections Therapy Services, Workplace Options, Hammersmith and Fulham Mind, and Westminster Mind in London, UK.
I also have worked as a Skype Counsellor for more than 5 years.
Within these years I have enjoyed working with people with diverse sexual orientations, ethnic origins, and spiritual beliefs.
Before London, I worked for 2 years at Children's SOS Villages and Dafni Psychiatric Hospital in Athens, Greece.
Now I see clients at my private practice in Glyfada and Online.
