Dr. Chris Papakyriakopoulos

Chris is a Family, Couples and Individuals Systemic Psychotherapist, a Relate Counsellor, and a Registered Licensed member of the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and a member of the Association of Family Therapy and Systemic Practice (AFT). I trained at the Institute of Family Therapy (IFT), London UK.

Chris currently holds the position of Highly Specialist Systemic Psychotherapist in Surrey Mental Health Services in the NHS where I lead two Family Therapy clinics and supervises other clinicians.

Chris has been a Researcher and part-time Academic in the field of Psychopathology at the Universities of London and Athens.


He has a Doctorate in Psychology from the University of London in the field of Human Development and Psychopathology.

Research interests

Chris has worked with children, young people, parents, couples and whole families for more than 15 years. In his professional journey he has had the privilege to be entrusted by clients to guide them away from their individual, couple or family difficulties and move forward to reach resolution and wellbeing.

In their work together his clients have built their skills on effective and constructive communication further. Chris has had the opportunity and the satisfaction to witness their journey towards significant shifts and changes in their lives, in their positioning, in their coping with adversity, which allowed them to reclaim their happiness and empowered them to think positive about the future.

Together they find the patterns that are unhelpful and need changing, whilst building on skills to bring about the difference that makes a difference in a client's life.

Clinical articles and research papers

He has presented articles and workshops in the field in international conferences, of which two of the latest are:

  • at the Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties Association (SEBDA) International Conference in Oxford - September 2010;
  • and a research paper: “Social, Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties and the Mental Processing Biases Suggested by School-Based Data Collection with Children Aged 8–12 in Greece: An Important Finding and Suggestions for Future Research”. In International Perspectives on Inclusive Education, April 2012; H. Daniels, J. Visser, Eds.
