“There is no passion to be found playing small and settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
Hello and welcome to my website.
My name is Anna Sapounaki and I run a psychotherapy, counselling, life coaching and parenting practice from locations in Wimbledon & Putney, South West London. I have over 25 years' experience as a counsellor and psychotherapist helping individuals, couples, and families navigate the challenges that come from managing relationships, raising children and coping with the stresses of everday life.
My belief is that the answers to our questions and the solutions to our problems can be found within our own awareness; finding a way to tap this source of wisdom and infinite potential can help guide us through life, and is one of the gretest benefits of engaging in talking therapy.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions I am currently working online with clients across the UK and in Europe.
Every one of my clients is exceptional, one of a kind, and as a psychotherapist and counsellor I tailor my approach to meet each person's individual needs and objectives. My goal is to inspire, motivate and guide them on a journey towards clarity, to assist them in realising their potential and to start living life to its fullest.
People come to me from a wide range of cultural, ethnic and family backgrounds, religious practices, values and experiences. I respect and accommodate diversity and draw on a variety of therapeutic approaches in my work, to help address each clients’ specific cognitive, emotional and spiritual needs.

Developing the therapeutic relationship
A fundamental first step in building a successful therapeutic relationship is developing trust and mutual respect. I provide a secure and reliable space in which to talk with a nurturing, empathetic, and non-judgmental approach. It is a space where you can feel supported and safe, able to engage, share your concerns and explore new possibilities without shame, judgment or criticism.
