Therapy with Venetia has changed my life immeasurably. In a safe, comfortable environment, I found a space to open up and deal with past trauma. I have gained insight and skills enabling me to move forward in a positive way. I feel empowered and in control of my own future, rather than holding myself back in fear caused by past experiences. I couldn’t recommend the services offered highly enough.

Venetia took the time to really understand what we wanted out of the sessions and her approach was gentle yet informative. We came away with practical tools to be able to use, and feel that we are in a much better place than when we first began. Thank you Venetia!

I feel extremely lucky having worked with a therapist as kind and professional as yourself. Following my separation, I had lost hope, but I am now leaving therapy much stronger and optimistic, for my future. The lessons learnt in our sessions will follow me throughout my life. Thank you

Thank you for showing me and learning me how to live with PTSD. I have never trusted anyone because of things the happened to me in my life. During therapy I learned to trust you and for me that is a miracle. Thank you for your professionalism, patience and understanding. Thank you for making a difference in my life. I believe I will always have problems with my childhood but my recovery from flashbacks and dreams us much quicker because of what I learned in therapy. Once again I thank you. You really have made a difference in my life.

Venetia really helped me and my partner during an emotional crisis. She helped us make sense & logic of a situation in a time of trauma. I would recommend Venetia to other couples who may be going through difficult periods in their relationship.

Peer Recommendations

I have worked with Dr Venetia Leonidaki in the same NHS service (Complex Depression, Anxiety & Trauma) & we managed patients together. Dr Leonidaki is a very passionate psychologist & she is extremely diligent. She is very skilled in using a wide range of psychological techniques & therapies. In my opinion one of the most important things about Dr Leonidaki work is that she empowers her patients & forms a strong therapeutic relationship with them which allows them to achieve all their goals. I highly recommend Dr Leonidaki to anyone who is looking for a professional, highly skilled & trustworthy psychologist.
