Portrait - Marietta Vafea

“I integrate psychodynamic, existential, humanistic and cognitive behavioural models and a variety of tools and techniques to offer clients a clearer understanding of their issues and a formulation that allows us to collaboratively define a treatment plan. Building a mutually trusting and open relationship is key to the way I choose to work, as is balancing a gentle approach with a challenging stance in order to make the most of each session.”
