Eirini Ampatzi Ippikoglou:
Psychodynamic Psychotherapist (BACP)
Hello, my name is Eirini Ampatzi Ippikoglou, I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist working at HQ Therapy Rooms in Haggerston, Hackney, London E8.
You are probably on this page because life hasn’t felt clear or easy lately. Perhaps you’ve tried therapy before or maybe it’s your first time thinking about it.
Starting therapy can be daunting, you and a stranger, sharing intimate details of your life.
However, if there is a part of you that feels like there are things that need to be addressed in your life, I could help.
You might not know what you would like to talk about, or maybe a specific image just popped into your mind. Life can feel difficult sometimes, and support can be life-changing during these times.
My therapy approach is psychodynamic. In a few words, this is the type of therapy where we would unearth different experiences and explore them in a safe environment through conversation, dream analysis and symbolism.
Through discussion and exploration, I can assist you to gradually change, accept and manage what makes you unhappy, whether this is a belief, a defence, or a fear.
Our relationship will also be very important and at the centre of the therapeutic process, since it will be based on trust and honesty.
Whilst therapy can be a hard process, I will take it at your own pace. Through consistency, we will build safety. And within that safety, we will be able to shed some light on what might be happening internally and why.
I practice in a way that involves looking beneath the mask, and I believe that by working through the troubles from the past, long-kept emotions can be released and you can feel fulfilled within yourself.
Therapy is a journey that leads to self-knowledge and awareness. It is a safe environment that will enable change as well as a place where everyone involved can be authentic.
I am a member of BPS and BACP. My journey into psychotherapy started with my Psychology BSc Hons at Birkbeck. I continued by completing an MA in Counselling at Goldsmiths University.
I am currently attending weekly clinical psychoanalytic seminars at the Institute of Psychoanalysis as well as weekly psychoanalytic supervision.
