My name is Panagiotis Bouzianis (Panos) and I am an HCPC registered, Chartered Counselling Psychologist. I provide face to face and online psychological therapy to adults who want to:
My aim is to create a non-judgmental space where you can feel you can share your concerns without fear or shame. This way we can begin to examine the origin of your concerns, what keeps your difficulties going and how you want to best address them. I will listen to you carefully, help you clarify your situation and examine possible ways forward. I work within a psychoanalytic model of therapy to help clients identify chronic, pervasive and unconscious ideas about themselves and others. This way we can explore what maintains difficulties but also what drives, strengthens and motivates us. I also work with cognitive behavioural interventions which help address immediate and practical problems arising from stress, anxiety, avoidance, dependencies, obsessions and compulsions.
My special interests include eating disorders, trauma and resilience, gender and sexuality, relationship ruptures, meaning in life, and working with the unconscious. I also offer clinical supervision for psychology trainees.
I have over nine years of combined clinical experience in NHS services, charities and private practice. Currently, I work as Head of Adult Clinical Services for a social enterprise offering counselling. I have also worked in the past as a specialist psychologist for the Maudsley Eating Disorders Outpatients service.
I have clinical experience in working with:
Abuse, Addictions, Anger management, Anxiety, Bereavement, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME), Depression, Eating Disorders, Emotional Regulation, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Impulse Control, Masculinity/ Men’s Issues, Mindfulness, Motivation, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Panic Disorder, Personal Development, Phobias, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Rejection phobia, Relationship Problems, Self-Esteem, Spirituality, Stress, Sleep Issues and Work-Related concerns.
