Hello, my name is Allie Markantonis and I’m a fully qualified Integrative Psychotherapeutic Counsellor based at CBT & Counselling West Malling. I’m an accredited member of the NCS (National Counselling Society) and work with adults and young people age 13+.
Starting from where you are now. I can help you find the powerful tools and techniques you need to take you to where you want to be. This is achieved through utilising all the tools in my therapy toolbox.
I also use other skilled techniques. Such as, the highly effective, content free, ‘Rewind Technique’. This is a non-intrusive, safe and highly effective psychological method for working with trauma and PTSD. Being content free means you don’t have to tell me details and it reduces the risk of being re-traumatised.
At counselling West Malling, I offer a down-to-earth and easy to relate to approach. The space I provide for you to explore your concerns is calm and confidential. I’ll help you talk through the times when you don’t feel quite in control or you are experiencing something difficult.
A combination of events, experiences and/or perceptions can conspire, leaving us stressed, depressed or anxious for instance. Or perhaps you are lacking in confidence, have low self-esteem or just feel un-motivated. This may lead you to behave in an unhelpful way that potentially makes things worse. For instance, you may get angry and lash out or you may eat or drink too much avoid situations you find difficult altogether.
This is when I can help you to help yourself. I will help you explore your difficulties and enable you to regain control of your life. Together, we can try and identify the cause of your problems; and deal with them. Instead of being preoccupied with the effects.
I subscribe to and work within the UKCP code of ethics and the BACP ethical framework. I also undertake regular professional development and supervision as well as having professional indemnity insurance.
If you would like to book an appointment to come and see me at CBT & Counselling West Malling then please contact me via CBT & Counselling Kent today. Request to see Allie
