About Me

I am Simina, a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with a solid foundation in Psychology. My extensive experience involves supporting individuals who have endured trauma, battled mood swings, faced depression, anxiety, addictions, eating disorders, personality disorders and emotional distress. At times, you may feel the need to release your inner turmoil and discover the light at the end of the tunnel. If you find yourself grappling with any of these issues, my therapy provides a safe space to alleviate your frustrations and effectively manage stress.


As a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, I am dedicated to assisting individuals in their journey towards understanding and healing from a wide array of complex psychological challenges. Some of the issues I specialize in include:


  • ADHD, depression, and anxiety.
  • Stress management.
  • Childhood trauma, particularly developmental trauma.
  • Eating disorders and weight loss.
  • Attachment and separation difficulties.
  • Identity exploration, relationship dynamics, and interpersonal issues.
  • Coping with employment and financial difficulties.
  • Post-natal depression and the challenges of new parenthood.
  • Fertility problems and coping with miscarriages.
  • Addressing gender and sexuality concerns.
  • Navigating the process of grief and loss.
  • Managing anger and emotional difficulties.
  • Addressing issues related to migration, acculturation, and deportation.
  • Working through marital problems and relationship struggles.
  • Addressing feelings of loneliness.
  • Understanding and managing difficult dynamics in relationships.
  • Improving relationships and becoming a better version of yourself.
  • Learning to let go of the past and embrace personal growth.


An essential aspect of my practice as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist is my commitment to working with individuals from all walks of life, regardless of their cultural or religious backgrounds. I possess a profound understanding of diverse cultures and religions, which enables me to offer culturally sensitive and inclusive therapy. This multicultural competence allows me to connect with individuals on a deeper level, respecting their unique perspectives and values.


My therapeutic approach is characterized by a deep appreciation for the richness of human diversity. I acknowledge that cultural and religious factors can significantly influence one's beliefs, values, and experiences. This understanding forms the foundation of my practice, ensuring that individuals from various cultural and religious backgrounds feel heard, respected, and understood during their therapeutic journey.


I recognise that cultural differences can play a crucial role in shaping an individual's psychological well-being and interpersonal dynamics. Therefore, I strive to create a therapeutic environment that is welcoming, nonjudgmental, and inclusive, where individuals can explore their thoughts and feelings within the context of their cultural and religious identities.

Client groups



I offer a scale of fees so you can access therapy whenever you need it, and whatever your income. Fees range between £50 and £90 per session depending on your personal circumstances. My aim is to make talking therapy available and to encourage people to seek support when feeling stressed or depressed. If you are a student or on a low income the weekly fee is £50.



Training and qualifications

I am a member of the Association for Group and Individual Psychotherapy (AGIP) in North London. Besides my training as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, my clinical training also includes a BSc in Forensic Psychology and extensive experience of working in female and male prisons across the UK. I’ve also worked within The Awareness Centre’s low-cost service in Clapham South offering long-term therapy and have been employed to offer shorter-term counselling with NHS patients at a GP surgery in Kennington. Now, I work as a Telephone Counsellor for an Employee Assistance Program (EAP) organisation as well as supporting private clients by offering private Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy to young people and adults who can benefit from this form of therapy.
