Counselling and Psychotherapy in Clapham - Wandsworth & South West London
Does life feel like it’s getting on top of you?
Could you benefit from a place to take some time-out?
... to explore your thoughts and feelings? ... to get back on a front foot again?
My name is Flora Malakasi and I have been a practising psychotherapist/counsellor for the past 20 years. I am committed to providing psychotherapy and counselling in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment.
As a qualified Existential Psychotherapist practicing in Clapham, Wandsworth and South West London, I work with both individuals and couples on an open-ended basis or for an agreed time period, with the aim of helping and assisting you to examine your life and the ways you relate to others. This enables you to re-evaluate your choices and find ways of dealing with the difficulties you may run into.
By examining our assumptions and cultivating self-knowledge and awareness we become able to overcome those issues which may feel overwhelming and anxiety provoking. Severe anxiety can be debilitating and overpowering but being understood as the outcome of choices we have made in the past and can continue making in life within the context we find ourselves into, then we can feel more in control of our lives. By exploring our ‘worldview’ in therapy, it becomes possible to understand these choices and create new opportunities to develop and see a way out of our personal affliction.
In exploring our relationships we also explore the way that everything we do is dependent on the context of our lives. Existential therapy is a relational and graceful approach that becomes relevant and useful in exploring the incredibly varied and individual challenges life presents to each one of us, in a unique way. Existential therapy is a clear, direct and honest approach helping clients work on their particular, unique experiences, problems, dilemmas and issues. It is appropriate for both short and long-term therapy.
As a psychotherapist/counsellor, I work together with each client with the aim to enhance
understanding and the development of insight. You retain the power to choose what you disclose and the degree to which you use enhanced insight to make any changes to your life.
Testimonial: "Flora was extremely helpful for me during a difficult period of my life, when I was suffering from anxiety issues. She was an understanding and thoughtful listener who enabled me to work out the causes of my anxiety. Although her approach was focused on helping me work out what was going wrong and what I wanted from my life, she also offered useful and insightful advice which helped me deal with various problems. Overall, I am in a much better state of mind as a result of working with Flora, and I would recommend her to anyone going through a difficult period, or suffering from issues such as anxiety or depression."
