Why counselling and therapy?
Life can be hard and painful sometimes. A sudden change, absence of changes or getting stuck would usually come with negative feelings and bad thoughts. Accepting and understanding yourself can be supported by counselling and therapy, as part of a trusting and confidential professional relationship. It is in our nature to transfer old pain, repeat unhelpful patterns, or withdraw – but we are also open to continuous development. It is always heart-warming when we see positive changes in our clients’ lives.
Text follows by psychotherapist, counsellor and ACPL manager:
Leo Dolias, MA. ADExPs. UKCP reg. MBACP.
My continuous development as a counsellor is parallel to my own life and my understanding of our world; hence I view my own therapy, supervision and other activities – such as sport, crafts, films, gardening – as meaningful elements of the quality of my work as a therapist. It all started when I went to a university counsellor while I was studying psychology in my early 20s. Together with my own life experiences I bring broad professional input, having worked in social care, health and academic settings. I have extensive experience in private practice and in NHS, counselling charities, LGBT services and crisis centers. I have authored published material and currently focus on my work with private clients, also working at a London University, and supervising trainee therapists. I would describe my approach to therapy as relational, interactive and experiential – based on ideas and practices from various cultures.
