Practice description

I am a qualified, BACP-registered counsellor based in London and Greece. I am also a transgender man and recently a parent of twins; my preferred pronouns are ‘he/him/his’. I work with individuals in LGBTQ+ communities and I have a particular interest in working with people who identify as transgender, non-binary, gender diverse, and gender-questioning. I offer therapy for anyone who wants to explore their identity, regardless of whether they are considering or undergoing transition. I also offer therapy to people who want support for other challenges in life and would like to work these through with a trans therapist.

I also work with couples, partners, family members or anyone close to someone who is exploring their gender identity.

The counselling approach I am using is Person-Centred. I will offer an empathic, non-judgmental and accepting space in order to help you make sense of your experiences and feelings, as well as access your own resources to explore the challenges you are currently facing.
