About Iro Micahel

A Personal Journey to Psychotherapy and Counseling

My name is Iro Michael, I am a Cypriot woman, who grew up as an expat  in the middle east. By the time I was 24 years old, I had acquired my BSc in Psychology from Kent University, UK.

Having lived on three diverse islands while growing up, and being exposed to people from various cultural backgrounds worldwide,  it sparked my curiosity about life and human nature and led me to pursue psychotherapy and counseling.

I continued my studies in London at NSPC, where I found my true calling. I was particularly drawn to existential philosophy, which I still use in my practice as a psychotherapist today, in combination with other approaches. Although some philosophers may be obscure, they are always thought-provoking and offer valuable insights into life and human existence.  It was clear to me that existential philosophy suited my enquiring nature into my own and other people’s hearts, minds, and souls. Since then, I began a very demanding but rewarding journey into people’s inner world as well as my own self-discovery.

My Experience

A decade of compassionate and effective therapy services

As a registered member of BACP (397067) and a voting member of FETE, I have been providing confidential counselling and psychotherapy services to individuals aged 14 and older for over a decade. My MSc in Existential Psychology and Psychotherapy from the New School of Existential Psychotherapy and Counselling (NSPC) in 2014 has equipped me with a strong foundation in Humanistic, Existential, Phenomenological and Integrative approaches, which allows me to tailor my approach to meet the specific needs of each client.

In addition to my education, I have received training in person-centered, psychoanalytic/psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and meaning-centered psychotherapy for cancer care providers. This enables me to provide an integrative approach as necessary to meet the unique needs of each client.

Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working with several non-governmental organizations (NGOs), gaining valuable experience working with clients who face a wide range of issues such as addictions, anxiety, depression, family relationship issues, domestic violence, anger management, bereavement, victims of abuse, identity crisis, trauma, eating disorders, prisoners, and immigration issues. This experience has allowed me to develop my skills further and has enabled me to adapt my approach to meet the needs of each unique client.

Currently, I am also pursuing further training in Family Systemic Therapy to continue expanding my skills and offer more comprehensive support to my clients. With my experience, education, and dedication to providing compassionate care, I am committed to supporting individuals in their journey towards greater well-being.
