Psychotherapy, Counselling and Parenting in Wimbledon and Putney, South West London.

Hello and welcome to my website,

My name is Anna Sapounaki. I run a private psychotherapy, counselling, life coaching and parenting practice in Wimbledon and Putney, South West London, specialising in relationships. Well-qualified with a rich background of experience and more than 25 years of practice. I work with individuals, couples, families and parents who seek advice facing the challenges that come with raising children.
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, at the moment I also work online with clients from all over the UK and Europe.

Personal approach

Home. Counsellor-Anna-Sapounaki

My belief is that all the answers to our questions and all the solutions to our problems, reside in a place within our own awareness. We need to find the way to tap into this well of wisdom and infinite potential, to guide us through life.

Each and everyone of you, my clients are exceptional and one of a kind. Therefore, as your psychotherapist and counsellor I take a personal interest in creating and tailoring my approach to meet your specific individual needs and objectives. My goal is to inspire, motivate and guide you in your journey to clarity and eventually assist you to reach your potential and activate and develop a unique perspective that will enable you to live your life to the fullest.


When we feel strong and connected with our power within, then whatever life brings as a challenge and difficulty, we can treat as a valuable lesson that will empower and motivate us to be creative and rise stronger and wiser.

About Therapy

Therapy and counselling can become a bridge from pain and distress to healing, from isolation and self doubt, to confidence and self-assertion, from a sense of loss and separateness to a feeling of hope and connection. Stress, anxiety, depression, relationship issues vanish when high self esteem and confidence are developed and nurtured.

About Therapy

Couples Therapy

Couples therapy facilitates communication between the partners and promotes couple awareness. It addresses issues that have to do with the relationship, the interaction and closeness of the couple. It facilitates intimacy and sharing feelings, thoughts, experiences and a life together.

We all want our children to be healthy, vibrant, independent and happy. We want them to be lovable, confident, creative and courageous, enjoy meaningful relationships and a sense of accomplishment and belonging. We want them to be centred, compassionate and well-rounded people of the world. We want to see them flourish and lead a fulfilling life. Counselling can show us ways to make this happen.

About Me

My experience as a family therapist and counsellor comes from continuous professional education and training and lifelong personal development, many years of working with clients and of course working through my own share of challenges that life constantly brings to our path.

About Me

People come with a wide range of cultural, ethnic and family backgrounds, religious practices, values and experiences. We present unique characteristics and personal circumstances. I respect diversity and am willing to make accommodations and adapt therapy and counselling to cater individual needs.

Therefore I draw from a variety of therapeutic approaches and use a synthesis of different views to address my clients’ cognitive, emotional and spiritual world.

Developing the Therapeutic Relationship

A fundamental building block for a successful therapeutic relationship is trust and mutual respect. My aims are to build a nurturing, empathetic, non-judgmental and strictly confidential working alliance and create a secure and reliable space. With me you will feel supported and safe to engage, open up and share your concerns without feeling shame, judged or criticised and eventually be creative to explore new avenues and possibilities.

I hope to accompany you on this journey for a better life and witness you bring out your positive qualities and rise into the fullness of what you are meant to be. My aim is to empower you to reduce struggles, meet challenges and lead a rewarding, satisfying and abundant life.
