My name is Katia Nicolaides, I am a registered counselling psychologist in private practice. I spent 5 years as a volunteer intake counsellor at the 'Teddy Bear Clinic' for sexually abused children before my formal training.
Moreover, my volunteer work expanded and I later joined 'Family Life Centre' in Parkwood as a volunteer family and divorce mediator.
I completed my internship training at the 'Family Life Centre' where I was exposed to a number of experiences: individual, child, couple, adolescent, family, trauma and community work. I attend a number of reading groups as part of my ongoing learning to expand my theoretical and practical knowledge.
I have attended numerous workshops over the years adding to my knowledge and expertise as a professional. As a counselling psychologist I see people who are struggling with emotional and life difficulties. My aim is to help them to return to full functioning as soon as possible.
The approach that I use is based on an insight based therapy where brief, as well as long term therapy may be applied.
