I would definitely recommend Tolis as a counsellor. He was warm, compassionate and understanding, as well as being astute and thoughtful. I felt that through our sessions I gained useful advice, guidance and clarity on various issues and dynamics/ patterns taking place in my life. More...

Tolis was a warm, welcoming companion in my journey to understand my past and my relationship with the others. He offered patience, practical advice and encouragement. I felt understood , yet challenged which allowed me to make peace with some of my previous traumas. I couldn't thank Tolis enough for his service and although we are not having sessions anymore, I would not hesitate to come back if I wish to continue therapy. More...

I had no experience of counselling prior to meeting Tolis, and did not know what to expect when I found myself in a particularly difficult situation - unhappy and lonely overseas, and struggling with a complex entangling of family and identity issues, amplified by the pandemic.

I contacted Tolis as I was impressed by his experience, as described on his website. As an analytical personality, the detailed preliminary questionnaire, which I completed prior to meeting him, also built confidence that I made the right choice.

Although I am naturally shy/reserved, in our meetings, Tolis provided an environment where I felt safe to speak. He was also happy to share personal experience to add colour to some of our conversations, and perhaps help me to open up further. We met online on a weekly basis and, despite the mess of my situation, I always had the impression that he retained everything I told him. Some sessions were emotionally challenging; some felt inspiring; some felt pointless or repetitive. On that last point: I remember asking him about feedback on my progress or for more "structure" so that I could sort of know that I am progressing. Slightly naïve, perhaps ...

What I discovered was that these conversations with Tolis gave me breathing space - a separation from the acute pain I felt at the beginning of the process. I needed that to go on. He was a fixed point when I needed one most and I am very grateful for his help. I still hear his warm voice and wise advice resonating from time to time, and would more than likely return to him again, for a catch-up and/or when the need arises again.

I would recommend Tolis very highly.

Counselling

I worked with Tolis on a weekly basis for over 2 years and would not hesitate to recommend him as a professional, trusted, empathic and supportive BACP-accredited Therapist.

Tolis helped me to unpick my past, to face some of my demons, to gain a better understanding of situations and experiences that had occurred in my past and how those situations might be replayed in the present.

In working through some of my more recent issues, I was gifted a confidential time and space ... where I felt that I could truly be heard and valued. I was listened to, without judgment and supported in gaining the confidence to recognise and accept my "new/true Self".

I'm only now changing to another Therapist due to some external factors, otherwise I would've been happy to continue my sessions with Tolis.

So, if you're thinking about seeking support and attending therapy, please don't hesitate - give Tolis a call....

Tolis is a very knowledgeable and efficient therapist. He knows how to relate to his clients and to help them make sense of their reality. His direct approach lead me to grasp my feelings and thoughts very quickly. I would always go back to him if I ever felt like I needed to talk to someone again if future. Excellent work! More...

Tolis helped me find confidence in myself, to value my happiness, to be brave in the face of obstacles, to absolve myself of guilt and to create boundaries to prioritise my mental health. I had a great journey with Tolis and I can say that my life is 10x better than when we started therapy and it has played a huge part in this. More...

Counselling

I found my sessions with Tolis very rewarding. His considered and empathetic approach created an environment where I felt comfortable to challenge my rigid thoughts and responses to difficulty.

Our sessions gave me a chance to talk about situations that I was struggling with and learn techniques to ease my anxieties.

I would highly recommend Tolis to anyone that is looking for some support.

Tolis was excellent and I would recommend him to anyone seeking counselling. He created a comfortable environment and was well prepared for each session, building on the blocks from the previous session each time. I don't have much experience with other counsellors but Tolis definitely helped me through a tough time. More...

I'm really grateful for the time that Tolis was my counsellor. I was at a point in my life where I felt that things could break at any moment and having that consistent person there was very helpful to remind me I was still going. I could tell that Tolis had genuine empathy for my experiences and wanted to offer not only new perspectives through challenging my thoughts, but an opportunity to take time to reflect on how my circumstances were impacting my daily life. Opening up to others is not the easiest of things for me but Tolis provided a safe space with kindness listening empathy. Thank you! More...

Counselling

When I met Tolis I was in probably the lowest place I’d ever been and I knew that I needed help managing my anxiety, my depression and my stress. Tolis was kind and understanding and made sure I worked hard in and out of therapy to look for answers myself. I had what I can only describe as an out of body experience in one of our sessions, following that I felt forever changed. He created a safe environment for me to share my feelings without fear or shame and always let me know my feelings were valid. After a year and 3 months with Tolis l am now free from the black cloud I once lived under, I feel positive and hopeful and have the tools to manage my day to day life medication free. I can’t thank him enough for everything he did for me and I would recommend him to anyone struggling with their mental health. More...

I found Tolis online and of course as with anything found over the internet I had my hesitations. After 2 years of sessions I can say without a doubt that he is one of the most caring, empathetic and helpful counselors/therapists I've had. I would recommend him to anyone going through a hard time, looking for some direction and perspective. He is an amazing listener and challenges you to think things in a different light, rather than other therapists that sit passively and listen only, in that way giving you the gift of major personal breakthroughs. He helped me a lot when I was going through a hard patch in my life and for that I am forever grateful :) More...

A friend recommended Tolis. After having had sessions with him for several months, I am so grateful to have connected with him. He is empathetic and a great listener, I felt very comfortable talking about the issues I was facing. The sessions have helped me tremendously. He changed some of my old beliefs and gave me lots of tools/examples because of which I feel more optimistic, motivated and confident! I highly recommend him :) More...

I was assigned Tolis when i was going through a tough time at work and at home and was with him over 2 years. He helped me so much look at things in different ways rather than the way I was thinking and many times put things in perspective for me. He helped me though a very difficult time in my life and I would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone that was in need of a therapist/counsellor. More...

1 April 2021

I attended sessions with Tolis over the period of a year. I was going through a lot at the time and he helped me along to get on the right path. It was my time doing counselling and I certainly would recommend Tolis. More...

I love seeing my clients flourish. During our time together I experience a deep connection with my clients, . I experience a powerful bond in our brokeness followed by a deep empathy and unconditional positive regard for the strength of human potential. Walking the path together with my clients and getting to a place characterised by an end to loneliness and s sense of direction.

I worked for 2 drug rehabs and a large London University. I wanted to continue developing as a therapist and currently studying for a Masters award, while I continue my research in Addiction and volunteering with a large charity.
