“My experience with Ms. Koteas has been excellent. I have been in therapy for 3 years now: she first established that I was bipolar and directed me to a specialist psychiatrist in order to start the appropriate course of drugs. As an analyst, I would say that not only she is a great listener, but also that she really dedicates her full attention to the patient during the session. Time passes without realizing it. She shows empathy, understanding and deep knowledge of the subject. What amazes me the most though is her unique ability to spot the exact root of the problem, to put her finger, so to say, in the wound and to give answers to my innermost unresolved questions. In many ways I consider her my best friend.”

“I highly recommend Loula Koteas. She is a caring, knowledgeable therapist, and was a great help to me during a difficult time in my life. She was able to help me find the positive out of a negative situation and after our sessions I had a more positive outlook. I was able to better understand my and other persons behaviors, and grow and develop as a person”.

“Loula Koteas has helped me to use the tools I have to make my life better and to overcome my fears and insecurities. To find the courage to build a better life and to believe in a brighter future. She is a wonderful, warm person who is a true professional and very dedicated to her work.”
Loula Koteas has wonderful skill as a psychotherapist and couples’ counsellor. Completely bilingual, her total understanding of Greek and American culture has made her an invaluable ally and guide through the inevitable challenges of a cross-cultural partnership. As well as great empathy, warmth, and sensitivity, Loula also brings a variety of down-to-earth practical techniques which we’ve found really valuable. Thanks to her support, our relationship has survived and also thrived. Even more importantly, we each have come to know and understand ourselves better, and feel much better able to recognise old patterns and move beyond them, both alone and together.
I first started seeing Loula three years ago when I was faced with a very difficult time in my life. Her professional knowledge, her guidance and the sense of comfort she offers help me stay positive and get me through my struggles. She understands me well, provides me with clarity and is my “go-to” person when in need of advice or support. She helps me become a stronger, more confident person which has helped me achieve so much more in my life. Although I no longer live in Greece, Loula makes time for sessions through Skype. It is a great feeling to know that I can speak to her anytime!

“When I first came to Loula Koteas, I was depressed and unable to move forward in my life. She helped me untangle the confusion of my childhood and inherited behavior and move from unconscious living to conscious living, she helped me find and express my voice, and she has given me useful tools to move forward in my life. I have at my disposal a deep understanding of what needs to be done to live the life I want and deserve, and numerous exercises to access and use to get there, and most of all, I have hope. Loula Koteas is the biggest gift I ever gave myself, and I will be forever grateful to her for giving back to me my life in order when I handed it to her in shambles. I absolutely doubt there is a more gifted psychotherapist than her out there.”

Σήμερα λοιπόν που σας στέλνω τελειωσα το τελευταίο μου μάθημα στο μεταπτυχιακό μου, είμαι με έναν άνθρωπο που με κάνει να χαμογελάω κάθε μέρα και περισσότερο, που με έχει κάνει να ξεχάσω εντελώς το άσχημο παρελθόν της προηγούμενης σχέσης μου και από το καλοκαίρι συζούμε! Χαίρομαι τόσο που σας γνώρισα….άργησα πολύ να κάνω πράξη όλα όσα είχαμε συζητήσει αλλά δεν μετανιώνω ούτε στιγμή για όλα όσα αλλάξαμε μαζί! Σας ευχαριστώ για όλα!
