Psychology and Psychiatry are often confused as having the same meaning. While both are concerned with mental health, there is a distinct difference between those two fields. A Psychiatrist is a doctor who focuses mainly on the use of medication for the treatment. On the other hand, a Psychologist is a mental health professional who primarily focuses on thoughts and feelings and uses psychotherapy as the tool to improve the person’s general well-being.
Therapy is a process. Just like everyone’s story is different, everyone heals, learns, grows or change at a different pace. The nature of your concerns, your expectations and your readiness for change, coupled with the goals that you and I will jointly establish, are factors that determine the length of the therapy process.
At least a 24-hour notice is required for any cancellation. Sessions cancelled with less than 24 hours notice, or missed sessions, are charged the full session fee. Exceptions include serious illness, emergency and circumstances beyond your control.
Sessions are usually weekly. This can vary according to each client’s circumstances. The frequency of the sessions is decided by you and I at the beginning of therapy, and depending on your needs it can change at any time during the course of therapy. Similarly, you are free to end therapy whenever you choose, although deciding together when the right time for termination is together will be better in terms of therapy outcomes.
All services are offered either in English or Greek.
In order for therapy to be effective, it is very important that you feel at ease with the therapist you choose.
An initial session will allow us to discuss any questions or concerns you might have regarding therapy/counseling
and give you a sense of what working with me will be like.
