Fay Kalapoda, MSc, BSc (Hons), PGDipCBT, MAREBT, BABCP Accred

I am a BABCP Accredited Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBT therapist) that specializes in REBT (Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy).

I have had more than 10 years working in mental health (more specifically, in Higher Education, the NHS and privately) and I am the Honorary Secretary of AREBT and the REBT SIG Branch Liaison Officer for BABCP.

CBT is a time-limited therapy and often within 6-8 sessions you will see significant results. During this type of therapy you will learn to change your unhelpful feelings and behaviours through exploring and changing your thinking about past, present or future life events.
Rather than focusing on what is outside your control you will learn valuable tools and techniques on how to help yourself by changing what is within your control.
My goal as a therapist is for you to leave therapy having built a tool-kit for life and having the confidence to help yourself in the future and cope effectively with life’s challenges.

I can offer face to face, phone or Skype sessions; in English or in Greek.
My office is based in Liverpool street, Harley Street and Stratford.
I am also able to offer life coaching and business/leadership coaching sessions.

Marina Christoforidou, BSC MA

I am a qualified psychoanalytic psychotherapist registered with the British Psychoanalytic council (BPC). I work with people to help them make more conscious choices in life and to eventually break repetitive patterns. Psychoanalytic-Psychodynamic Psychotherapy is an effective therapeutic approach that helps people make sense of and deal with emotional difficulties.

I am particularly interested in helping people manage and understand the emotional difficulties caused by migration. The process of living in a foreign country could be exciting but also overwhelming and -possibly- traumatic. I provide a safe space to explore this experience.

I offer therapy in both Greek and English. Please visit my personal website for additional information

My extensive training and experience in different psychotherapeutic approaches (psychodynamic, person-centred, systemic, behavioural), enable me to apply the interventions that best meet your individual needs and pace.

Within this supportive environment, we will work together to shed light on unhelpful patterns of behaviour, dysfunctional relationships, painful feelings, traumatic events or any other barriers that prevent you from experiencing the life you wish for. Being more self-aware can help you make better choices, implement changes and reach your full potential.
