Dr Anastasios Dimopoulos is a Consultant psychiatrist with over 10 years of experience in assessing, diagnosing, and treating mental disorders. His training as a psychiatrist has been complemented by a training in phenomenological-existential analysis, a modality that emerged from a fruitful dialogue between psychoanalytic theory and phenomenological philosophy. 

Dr Dimopoulos Is a professional who is empathetic, compassionate, and dedicated in supporting his clients. He conceives the therapeutic encounter as the effort to create a shared and meaningful understanding of the multifaceted aspects of individual mental distress. This enhanced therapeutic alliance leads to the identification and implementation of personalised therapeutic options. He is an inquisitive mind and a lifelong learner who is committed to continuous professional development. 

Dr Dimopoulos studied medicine in Rome-Italy and subsequently returned to Greece where he did his training in General Adult Psychiatry and Phenomenological-Existential Analysis. He subsequently came to the UK where he held various positions at a Consultant level in the NHS. Currently, he works as a Consultant for East London NHS Foundation Trust, engaged in the Community Transformation project. While in the UK, he gained an MA in Philosophy of Mental Health where he developed an interest in integrating philosophical ideas in medical education in mental health. He has recently been elected as the Chair of the Philosophy Interest Group of the Royal College of Psychiatry. 

Dr Dimopoulos has provided training and supervision in psychoanalytic psychotherapy for psychiatric trainees and facilitated Balint groups to support them. Dr Dimopoulos has given presentations in national and international conferences on topics intersecting the fields of psychopathology, philosophy, and psychoanalytic theory and practice. 

Dr Dimopoulos is available to provide comprehensive psychiatric assessments to interested individuals who would like to gain a holistic perspective on their mental health difficulties and engage in appropriate treatment options.
