Niki Costas TantoTransactional analysis psychotherapist
I am an accredited psychotherapist and counsellor offering a confidential and caring therapy service in central London and Richmond Upon Thames. I treat issues around self-esteem and self-confidence, bereavement and loss, work related stress, anxiety, depression, historical trauma and relationship issues. I also offer clinical supervision to qualified practitioners and trainees in the social care and mental health field.
Many people encounter a problem at some point in their life. If you do, you don’t have to go through it alone. Sometimes talking about it with an objective professional may help. If you considered counselling with me, I would provide you a safe space to talk through your thoughts and feelings and explore your options. We would work together to find a solution and empower you to make the right choices for you.
Alternatively, if you've ever wondered about understanding yourself better, psychotherapy looks at the core of the person, his or her interactions and how he or she relates to others. Typically longer term than counselling, psychotherapy looks at understanding rather than solutions. During psychotherapy with me, we would aim to understand your sense of self and your repeated patterns and work out whether they are destructive or restrictive. Our aim would be to transform limiting old patterns into constuctive new ones.
I am a Certified Transactional Analyst and I use Transactional Analysis, a Humanistic modality of therapy, in my work with clients. TA is an integrative style that helps to improve communication patterns within our relationships and challenges our core beliefs about ourselves and others. My aim is to use TA where appropriate to support clients to better understand themselves and others.
I am offering online therapy via Skype, Zoom and FaceTime during this period of uncertainty through COVID-19. There is now also the option to attend sessions in-person depending on location and availability.
If you would like to talk in confidence with a caring therapist, give me a call or email me.
