Georgina Chatzitheodorou is currently working towards the Professional Doctorate in Counselling Psychology (DPsych) and she is pursuing accreditation with the Health Care Professions Council, upon completion of her doctorate studies. She is a registered member of the British Psychological Society (MBPsS) since 2014. She holds a Bachelor’s in Special Needs and two masters’ degrees, one in Psychology in Italy and one in Clinical Mental Health Sciences in the UK.

Georgina aims to provide a dedicated, compassionate, accepting, trusting and confidential space where her clients can feel seen and heard for who they truly are. Georgina’s approach is client-centred, offering an individualised therapeutic experience. She draws on the philosophy of two modalities, the Psychodynamic and the Person-centred approach according to the issues that clients bring into the therapy room. Through the Psychodynamic modality Georgina explores the behaviours, feelings, emotions, thoughts, early-life experiences and beliefs of her clients. She identifies and evaluates the patterns that they have developed over time which might relate to their early experiences and might also influence their lives, their present-day problems and their choices. Through the Person-centred modality Georgina establishes a warm and genuine therapeutic relationship valuing her clients as true individuals while she works collaboratively with them to explore their thoughts and feelings from their point of view.
Georgina has developed a significant amount of experience working in various mental health and educational settings over UK and Greece. With a strong background in Special Needs, she has an interest in ADHD, Autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and Learning Disabilities. Georgina has done research and has a special interest in therapeutic expressive writing as a means of emotional disclosure for people with advanced stage disease. She also has a particular interest in low-self-esteem and self-confidence issues, stress, anxiety, depression and OCD. She is able to offer multilingual therapy, in English, Greek and Italian.
