Antony ConstantinouPsychodynamic psychotherapist
My name is Antony Constantinou. I am a Counsellor and Psychotherapist working from my consulting room in the Kings Road area of Fulham and Chelsea. I also work with clients online on Skype, Zoom and teams.
I studied In Psychodynamic Counselling at London’s Birkbeck College University and then went on to train In Integrative counselling at Middlesex University. I undertook further training at Tavistock and Portman in Psychodynamic psychotherapy and completed training in couples counselling at the Surrey counselling training.
After extensive experience within the NHS, charity, and private sector, I established myself in private practice.
I continue to train and commit to continuous personal development to keep up with the code of ethics set by the BACP. I then undertook many pieces of training such as psychodynamic clinical assessment, drug and alcohol abuse, anxiety and depression and personality disorders.
I have been working from my practice In Fulham for over two years, where I meet with clients from all walks of life. Before this, I established my practice in the Covent Garden area of London, where I met with clients who worked from the city and beyond. In addition to my clinical work in private practice, I provide professional consultation, group counselling and health assessments within the private sector.
The initial consultation
The initial consultation is the first step you will make when contacting me. This is to help you have a clearer idea of what you are looking for, what the various kinds of therapies are, or even whether a talking therapy is right for you. Sometimes it can even be hard to know what is wrong, or whether your concerns are valid. The consultation will support me in understanding you and the best possible path forward through Psychodynamic exploration and assessment.
Why Counselling and Psychotherapy?
People decide to come to therapy with me for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they are experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, lack of confidence or are simply feeling stuck. In other situations, they are grieving the loss of a loved one or are struggling with a traumatic event.
Often, people want to learn new ways to manage their stress. This is especially true during periods of change and transition in their lives, such as marriage, pregnancy, parenting, moving, divorce, change of career, illness, and other major life moments.
I work with you to help you gain a better understanding of your feelings and inner conflicts. Key steps include identifying unhealthy, repetitive patterns and making connections with early life experiences. This will enable you to make positive changes and healthy decisions, reinforcing your strength and confidence.
Issues often worked with
Types of therapy
I offer a sliding scale for patients based on income and financial circumstance
I offer concessionary places on enquiry when available, depending on the circumstances and for those less able to pay full fees. I would not like to keep anybody away from my consulting room due to financial restrictions.
