Dr Myrto Tsakopoulou is a counselling psychologist specialising in cognitive behavioural therapy. She also integrates elements of EMDR, psychodynamic, schema therapy and dialectical behavioural therapy. She has over 10 years’ experience of working in the NHS and voluntary sectors with people with a variety of mental health problems.
Myrto has worked extensively with people with mild to moderate problems with depression and anxiety (e.g. stress, sexual difficulties, OCD, social phobia, health worries, work performance, anger management, skin picking, sleep problems), but also with people with forensic histories and severe mental health problems such as schizophrenia and personality difficulties. She has a specialist interest and experience in applying CBT treatment to PTSD, ADHD and trichotillomania. She works with those whose difficulties impact on them not only on a personal level but also on their relationships and day-to-day functioning.
Myrto's approach is often directive but collaborative in nature; she works with the client not only in understanding the roots of their difficulties but also in challenging their unhelpful behaviours on a practical level. She has experience in working with individuals, couples and families. She has a doctorate and a Master’s degree in counselling psychology, a Master’s in health psychology, a diploma in forensic mental health and a Bachelor’s degree in psychology. She has conducted research in personality disorders and has received training in working with families and couples.
