About me

Dr Kassy Drossou

BPS and HPC reg, DPsych, MSc (Hons), MSc, BSc (Hons), BA

I am a Chartered Counselling Psychologist specialising in Autism Spectrum Conditions. I provide specialist Psychotherapy services for people with autism spectrum conditions (ASC) including High-functioning autism and  Aperger’s Syndrome.

I am trained in  Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person-Centered, Existential and Psychodynamic Therapy, although my approach will depend on the client’s needs.

I have worked almost exclusively  with more cognitively able adults  with an Autism Spectrum Condition  for the past 10 years in NHS psychotherapy services and the voluntary sector. In 2012 I completed a doctorate thesis at Regents University London, where I researched “How clients with an Asperger’s Syndrome diagnosis, experience the therapeutic relationship”.

In addition to my work in private practice, I manage the Psychology Department of  a charity called Hoffmann Foundation for Autism  which provides adults  services including psychotherapy for indiviuals  on the Autistic Spectrum.

I endeavour to offer a safe and confidential environment, where people with Autism Spectrum Conditions and their families are given the opportunity to express their feelings, explore the underlying causes of their behaviours and acquire either the self awareness required to lead a fulfilling life or those practical tools that will enable them to resolve their difficulties.
