Thinking of counselling?

Feeling like talking to someone but you are stuck in a waiting list?

My name is Leonidas Panagiotou and I am a qualified Integrative Counsellor and Psychotherapist and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

I would like to take a couple of minutes of your time and invite you to my private practice 'My Counselling Place'.

The first biggest issue when it comes to therapy is being stuck in a waiting list that could take weeks or even months before you have your first session. That only makes things difficult for you. The second biggest issue is to not be given the service and support you look for.

At 'My Counselling Place' the goal to avoid keeping you wait and making things more difficult. My philosophy is to offer an environment that matches your needs.

Do you feel the need to talk to someone?

'My Counselling Place' is here for you.

Why wait?

Psychotherapy is a broad term used to describe talking therapies, including counselling. Both counsellors and psychotherapists provide a service for those looking for support and treatment for a wide range of mental health and emotional issues.
The possibility that there is a difference between counselling and psychotherapy is a heavily debated question in the field of mental health treatment, and one that has yet to be answered. Some claim that counselling tends to tackle problems at the time of the crises, whereas psychotherapy focuses on longer-term psychological problems. However, this is not a universally agreed contention and you are advised to contact professionals personally to find out more about how they work.
You will feel it. Friends and family members can offer support and emotional alleviation, but this tends to be temporary. Talking to a specialist confidentially can make all the difference. Counselling or psychotherapy provides a regular time for those in distress to explore their feelings and talk about their problems.
If you're worried about someone else's mental health, it is important to do what you can to help and not knowing what to do can be extremely stressful. The action you take will depend on your relationship with this person and it will also depend on what kind of problem you suspect they have. Remember, it helps to feel like someone else cares. Without support, compassion and empathy, mental illness can be a very lonely road.

Types of therapy

Individual counselling sessions

This is the most common way of therapy. Having sessions with a therapist at their practice is by far the most popular and classic way of doing therapy. It offers immediacy and provides the opportunity for you to experience and be with another person whilst you narrate your story. Trust building is key.

Group Counselling

Groups tend to be more challenging but you get to experience people who have similar issues and gain a support network through this. An individual session ‘may’ feel more confidential, more contained, more secure. Groups 'may' have different dynamics which may be hostile to some. It is all about how you feel in each setting.

Telephone counselling

This type is a helpful alternative to face-to-face counselling and sessions take place over the phone instead of in person. This form of counselling can be particularly useful for those too busy to attend face-to-face sessions, have disability problems or suffer from social phobias.

Online Counselling

You do not feel comfortable talking about ‘it’ but rather writing it down? Be it video conference, audio or email this is the perfect match as you can have online sessions with your therapist instead. Benefits of online therapy is reduction of waiting lists, anonymity (if you feel so), better flexibility and doing it through the comfort of your home.
