Dear Visitor Welcome!
The story begins to unfold itself in April 2005, when I set up my Psychotherapy – Counselling Centre.
My vision is to help diversify the enrichment of the quality of life of my fellow human beings, regardless of age, gender, nationality, religion or sexual preference. Within this context, I aim to assist people to explore and to enhance their abilities and skills within the framework of their personal journey for self-actualisation and self-fulfilment.
What is Counselling ?
Counseling is the activity whereby a counselor counsels people on a broad range of problems and difficulties. Counseling is a process of interaction between the counselor and the person or persons who seek his/her assistance.
Η ποιητική συλλογή “Σκέψεις και Συναισθήματα”, είναι ένας οδηγόςγια το πώς θ’αντέχουμε αυτά που συμβαίνουν στον καθένα μας, γύρω μας και δίνει δύναμη να αγωνιζόμαστε, για να συνεχίσουμε να ζούμε μέσα από τις αναμνήσεις μας. Να παίρνουμε δύναμη και να εκφράζουμε τις σκέψεις και τα συναισθήματά μας για να λυτρωθούμε.

“Gabriella Philippou’s work with Nicosia Municipality Multifunctional Foundation and more precisely with the “Counselling Centre”.She mainly worked in small groups and she was dedicating two (2) hours per session (lecture/workshop). To achieve her goals she used a mixture of methods such as role plays, presentations, quiz as well as other group activities. She had the ability to communicate with the participants and gave them the opportunity to express their selves at an emotional and verbal level. The participants’ experience was an inspiration for her and adjustments were made on the sessions in order to fulfil their participants’ needs.”

“Within your activity, as a member of the Women’s Council, you had suggested this competition. Apart from being the inspirer of this idea, you were also the person who, through hard work that lasted months, overcame all the different obstacles which were encountered en route. In order that this idea of yours would materialize, it was necessary that you spent countless hours from your own time and that you covered all the expenses incurred for which you asked no reimbursement whatsoever, stating that their payment constituted your personal financial contribution to the project.“
