7+ Years Post-Accreditation Experience

Hi. I am Stathi Anthopoulos. I'm an accredited and registered counsellor and psychotherapist - I assist individuals and couples with their emotional wellbeing. I hold private and public sector experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist. My focus includes depression, relationship problems and self esteem, and the particular difficulties experienced by men and women.

What to Expect

An initial assessment meeting enables you to see if you are comfortable with me, discuss what worries you, ask questions, clarify confidentiality, and decide if therapy could help you. Please use a contact option on the right to book a preliminary assessment session in Brixton, London.

Client Centred Therapy

Client centred therapy focuses on understanding and accepting you. It facilitates your honesty around the worries you experience. Client centred therapy aims to help you find your own solutions.

Counselling

Counselling centres on listening to you, and assisting you. You decide which issue regarding your early years or adult life you discuss. An objective of counselling is to help you to speak about a difficulty and find a solution which is appropriate for you.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) recommends counselling for depression.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Psychodynamic therapy centres on the unconscious causes of the problems you experience. It facilitates you in being conscious of parts of your internal dynamics. Psychodynamic therapy seeks to increase your self-understanding to give you options.

The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) (England and Wales) suggests psychodynamic therapy for depression.

Psychology

Psychology is interested in you and your thoughts, emotions and actions. It offers you psychological interventions and mental health support. The objective of psychological therapy is to help you alleviate symptoms.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy focuses on you, and you obtaining insight into the difficulties you face. It explores your thoughts, feelings and relevant moments in your history. Psychotherapy intends to help you develop or discover appropriate ways of coping.

Thoughts on Mental Health

Practising yoga for half an hour every evening can be very efficient in helping you relax, as well as clearing your mind and improving your concentration," he says. "The word 'yoga' has been interpreted to mean 'stillness of mind' or 'union', and it can support you to stay mentally stable in times of stress and anxiety, and to improve the connection between your body, soul, and the world around you.

Stigma is so harmful because it shames, ostracises, discriminates, and punishes people for being different. One way to deal with stigma - whether it stems from within or others - is to talk about your feelings with compassionate and trustworthy people. Reaching out to others can be very scary, but you can develop many resources to cope with your mental health condition. You may use these strengths to seek support from trusted family and friends. You may also enter into treatment with caring therapists, where you can work through and learn to better manage your issues (and the resulting stigma). Support from others can help you feel less alone, less ashamed, stronger, and more confident. Sharing your story can also help combat stigma because it educates others about mental illness and makes you more human, as opposed to something to be feared and ignored.

The use of substances, despite their negative long-term effects on your health and wellbeing, carry the potential to help you discover and express parts of yourself that you previously had denied. If, for example, you were punished as a child for being 'loud' or 'naughty', you may have learnt very early on to suppress experiences of excitement and playfulness. You may have adopted a quiet, reserved 'good girl/boy' persona, becoming shy and socially withdrawn, feeling flooded with shame whenever you find yourself in a situation that invites playfulness, such as going out with friends. Alcohol and drugs can temporarily suppress such painful feelings of awkwardness or inhibition and leave you feeling happy, relaxed and confident. The trap you fall into when you become addicted to alcohol and drugs, is that you think that this is the only way to experience such personal change.

As children we all had a need to feel liked and appreciated. If this need was adequately met, you probably grew to like and regard yourself as a worthwhile individual. But, if you did not get enough loving attention, or if you received a lot of negative attention such as physical or emotional abuse or neglect, you may have grown up feeling inadequate. No matter what you achieve in life, you feel as if you are not good enough. You may develop a tendency to constantly seek affirmation from others in order to feel that you are a worthwhile person. And, even if you do get other people's admiration, any good feeling usually lasts only for a little while. This is because you have been alienated from what you yourself values and, instead, seek to fulfil other people's expectations.
