meet Phillip Lathopolous

Principal Clinical Psychologist at Psychology Health Studios.

Mr. Phillip Lathopolous is a Clinical Psychologist and Psychotherapist with experience in the treatment of the spectrum of Anxiety and Mood Disorders. 

He also has a special interest in illness and well-being linked with the Mind-Body Connection (i.e. manifestations of psychological and emotional suffering within the physical body).

In practice he utilises an integrated therapeutic approach, combining elements from a number of therapies tailored to the needs of each individual therapy, with a special interest in employing psychodynamic psychotherapy to increase awareness of unconscious parts of the self which are impacting upon one’s emotions, behaviour, and experience of reality, and the use of EMDR to shift emotional experiences which remain frozen in the past.
