My name is Dr Nikos Tsigaras and I am an experienced Chartered Counselling Psychologist offering counselling and psychotherapy to children, adolescents, adults, couples and families in Kensington. I endeavour to provide an ethical and confidential service based on cutting edge psychological research and tailored to your individual needs. I am originally from Greece (and can offer therapy in Greek, as well as English) and completed all my studies in the UK over a period of 8 years. I am also DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked which is necessary to work with children and adolescents.
I have been working in the NHS for a number of years with the full spectrum of needs in primary, secondary, and tertiary care settings with both outpatients and inpatients, individuals, groups, and families.
I am particularly interested in diversity and welcome individuals, couples, and families regardless of sexual orientation, ethnic origin, or spiritual beliefs. I particulalry welcome mothers suffering from post-natal depression.
There are a number of reasons why people may seek a psychological therapy and the different sections of this website provide information on a range of psychological services.
A major challenge in today's society is work related stress and worries about performance and job security. Individuals may also be bothered by a range of distressing thoughts and feelings around self-esteem or experience difficulties in forming and maintaining close relationships. Some people may be interested in personal development and increased self-understanding.
Parents may have significant difficulties managing a child, or feel very anxious about whether they are doing the right thing. Often such problems create further tension within the couple or place additional burdens to an already exhausted single parent.
Expectant mothers may be struggling with aspects of their pregnancy and even dread the times ahead, perhaps because of experiences with previous children.
