Ari SotiriouPsychodynamic psychotherapist
I offer individual and couples therapy online as well as walk and talk therapy in Wimbledon common while the UK government recommends social distancing. When permitted, I see in-person couples for marriage counselling and couples therapy in my consulting room in West London. I conduct consultations in English, in Greek and French.
Walk and talk in Wimbledon common is a 45-minute psychodynamically minded therapy session outdoors in the park. Mocca (a 16 years old miniature poodle) and I will meet clients at the Wimbledon Windmill Museum and go for a gentle stroll when we can talk about their worries and difficulties. Walk and talk is a structured therapeutic process, even though we do not meet in a consulting room.
Couples Therapy and Marriage Counselling is a time-limited therapy in blocs of five sessions.
I practice time-limited and open-ended individual psychodynamic psychotherapy:
In a Time-limited therapy of 12 sessions, we agree on a specific goal for what we need to work on the outset.
Open-ended therapy is a comprehensive work which allows a more in-depth exploration of one's difficulties. We will agree to end therapy at some point during treatment.
All modes of online therapy involve setting a regular date and time and meeting weekly for 50 minutes at the time agreed. The relationship that will develop between us during these sessions is the core of psychodynamic psychotherapy, and it might take some time for this relationship to emerge.
In-person couples therapy and marriage counselling consultations last 45 minutes to allow for post-session sanitation of the consulting room, it takes 10 minutes for some cleaning products to kill pathogens effectively.
