Hi, my name is Constantinos, and I am a CBT Therapist.
In my so far experience, I had the pleasure of working with some fantastic people who, however, were facing difficulties in life: low self-esteem, relationship issues, panic attacks, OCD, depression, and anxiety. Of course, all of us will face some problems now and then. It is only normal; we are humans with feelings, even if sometimes we fail to process or understand them.
With the structure and the tools CBT offers and mutual determination, I can help you improve your daily life. Furthermore, you will learn how to rely on your own strengths so that you can soon become your own therapist and be able to continue improving your life long after our sessions conclude.
Do you feel 'down'? Do you want to change and improve your quality of life? Then, let's have a chat. I offer both short-term and open-ended counselling in a safe, confidential, and non-judgmental setting, either face-to-face, in Edinburgh, or online.

Social anxiety disorder, or SAD, is when a person worries too much about being in one or more social situations. For example, people with SAD often feel anxious when they have to give speeches, attend social events, meet new people, eat in public, use public bathrooms, disagree with others, or talk to people in power.
Depression is among the most debilitating mental illnesses. Depression can be devastating for some people, but it can be treated. Combining treatments and the possibility of switching medication and adding cognitive-behavioural therapy can significantly increase the chances of getting better.
Relationships between people are complicated, hard to manage, and can seem dangerous. Because relationships can be fraught with conflict, resentment, and misinterpretations, it takes work to keep them going. One of the most important things we can bring to a relationship, whether romantic or not, is the ability to think about things from different points of view.
Worrying is normal, but if you worry too much, it can wear you out and hurt your health. This is called Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD), and it is estimated that between 2% and 6% of the general population have GAD every year. The good news is that GAD can be effectively treated with CBT.
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is one of the most depleting anxiety disorders. It is characterised by repeated thoughts, urges, or images that cause fear or worry ("obsessions") or by repetitive, systematic actions (called "compulsions") that the person feels compelled to do to reduce fear or avoid something they fear.
