This is what some client say about their experience of having an astrology reading with me...
  
"I decided to have an initial consultation with Spiros as I felt that I needed some guidance about career matters. Spiros was very warm and understanding; I had a great experience overall. We discussed in depth about my chart and how I experience the different aspects. He looked at my chart in a way that I hadn't considered in the past, when I read my chart by myself, and he gave me a lot of perspective and clarity. After our session I really felt empowered and confident. I highly recommend a consultation with him, he is a very caring and experienced professional and well as a very thoughtful and kind individual. " Konnie, Chemist, London, May 2018.

"I decided to have an astrology reading with Spiros as I felt I needed deeper insights to help me understand who I am. I hoped that bringing my personality nuances into light, especially focusing on strengths of my character and motivations driving my choices and decisions in my professional and personal life, would give me confidence to pursue my dreams and ambitions.

The session with Spiros proved to be an amazing experience. Not only is he highly knowledgeable in his field and extremely professional in the way the reading was conducted, Spiros is also an incredible person filled with genuine warmth, understanding, and radiant positive energy, which I find very important in order to build trust when discussing private matters. I enjoyed every moment of our conversation which was full of valuable insights and realizations about my past and present, and inspiration towards my future.

I would highly recommend Spiros as a truly gifted astrologer to anyone seeking a deeper understanding who they are and how to bring the best out of themselves in order to live a harmonious life."  Yuliya Donald, Cataloguer, London, April 2018

"I found Spiros online whilst revisiting my interest in astrology. I was actually quite unsure if I wanted to proceed and I first had a lovely chat with him on the phone to decide. His manner was so warm and understanding that I decided to book a session. I can honestly say that it was so wonderful not just because he explained my chart to me with great clarity and insight, but because of his work as a counsellor. It was incredibly healing for me and I felt so supported and understood by him even though we’d just met. He is an incredibly warm person who radiates light and love and I believe anyone going to see him would benefit from his astrological wisdom and also just from his kind heart. He is a lovely person and this is the most important thing I believe when visiting someone who is delving into your past, your present and even your future! There must be a positive intention for the client above all and he is really there to help people understand themselves better - and feel good about themselves. I highly recommend anyone to go see Spiros.." Catherine Beckwith, Writer/Editor, London, March 2018.
"I choose Spiros as he had done his Astrological training at the Faulty of Astrology London, which is one of the most reputable places to study Astrology in the UK. Their training is very thorough, concluding in a Diploma, that’s respected worldwide. As I am a little familiar with Astrology, I booked a consultation with him to discuss upcoming possible changes in my life, as I am heading towards my sixties. I expected confirmation of my gut feelings that I am going through a particular phase in my life, which requires of me to inspect my values, relationships and how I want to live the last part of my life. The consultation was an open discussion, with Spiros asking questions and myself responding with answers pertaining to my situation. I really enjoyed this dialogue, as it gave me the power to make my own choices and decisions. The three most useful insights were, to trust my instincts more, to take a closer look how I relate with people, and that it is alright now to take some time for myself to figure out, and be curious about what I need and want in life. Spiros is engaging, knowledgeable and totally easy to talk to. You will feel inspired and uplifted afterthe consultation, knowing that you have new options and choices for your life."​​ ​Jacqueline Saednajad, Catering, London, January 2018.

“I have had an astrology reading once before I met Spiros and I thought that the meeting with him would be similar to the previous one that was more traditional in tone and content. That couldn’t be further from the truth! With my initial query as a starting point, the reading felt more like a counselling session that took a deep look into my past patterns, present worries and concerns, and aspects of my personality. This way of working not only answered my initial questions but enabled me to gain a more profound understanding of myself, to look at my concerns from different angles, and to start thinking about long-term, rather than temporary, solutions to my issues. I would most certainly recommend a session with Spiros as I believe that he is so much more than just a consultant astrologer.”  Duygu, London,  December 2017.

​"I saw Spiros for a reading as I was keen to understand my chart in a bit more detail, and get some pointers for the time ahead. Like most of us I guess I am often subconsciously looking for the oracle to give me the 'secret key', the full manual, clear directions, but this was not quite what I came away with. Instead the reading felt like a sensitive, gentle and playful exploration of the territory and the forces at play in my chart and in me. It brought increased understanding of aspects of myself, internal conflicts and challenges and how they may manifest. I also came away with a sense of spaciousness, of there being more room somehow for me to breathe, because so many aspects of who I know I am had been offered space, recognised, given a nod. It felt like all those internal parts lifted their heads and could breathe a little, could exist more freely.  The particular gift that Spiros brings to this process I feel is his great facility with the rich, detailed universe of metaphorical and multi-layered meaning expressed through the archetypes of astrology. It is as if he absorbed it all at cellular level, perhaps by immersion from birth. He is a master craftsman with all the tools at his fingertips. Not only does he have arch a rich and full palette, his language is suffused with imagery and metaphor, rich yet spacious, he offers and invites room for reflection within the conversation.  He communicates with sensitivity and presence, picking up on my reflections and offering potential new perspectives in in a way that deepened  understanding. It is this soulful artistry I think that made me come away with this sense of rich spaciousness, skilfully and lightly offered. A gift."  Ingrid Murphy, Integrative Transpersonal Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, London, November 2017.


"I’ve known Spiros for a long time and was very excited when he agreed to do my chart. I have just been through a very tough period in my life. My fiancé had left me about a year before, and in the space of that year I had managed to deal with all the emotional trauma plus the practical implications of the separation (including moving house while working on PhD corrections), completing my PhD within the set deadline and rebuild every single aspect of my life successfully. I was very intrigued as to where I managed to find the strength to carry on and persevere, and I thought an astrology reading will provide an insight into how this happened.

I felt that Spiros was definitely spot on describing some aspects of my character that even I thought I was hiding quite well! I was quite amazed how he also interacted with me during the session and how observant he was – this was certainly not a monologue on his part! At one stage for instance he observed that even the change of our discussion from the professional level of my life (where I knew I always appear most confident and can talk for hours about what I do) to my personal (where I always lack confidence and even avoid eye contact) changed both my body language and the way I was interacting with him. I was quite startled by this observation and it made me reflect a lot on who I am!

Spiros constructs his sessions in a very professional manner – before he had a chance to work on my reading, we had a little talk together giving him a few information about myself, as well as what I would expect to get out of the session, so his sessions are always tailored to his clients’ needs. The session itself was delivered in a very professional manner – Spiros is naturally a very engaging and warm person, and will make anyone feel at ease.

The entire experience was one of self-discovery; it made me reflect a lot on traits of my character that I never really noticed too much, and I do feel I understand myself much better as a result of his reading. I also think it changed my stance– it made me think a bit more about some aspects of my personality that I never noticed too much before.

I would definitely recommend him to everyone who would like to get on board a self-discovery experience with the help of a professional astrologer" Dr. Maria Kiladi, Musicologist, London, November 2016.

"I was given an astrology reading as a birthday present and when I got in touch with Spiros to arrange the details I instantly felt at ease by his immediate and friendly approach  during the telephone exchange. The truth is I had never been to an astrologer before and knew nothing about astrology other than that the position of the planets at birth somehow affect one’s character, and as such I had little idea what to expect from the reading. 

We did the session over the phone during which Spiros analysed different aspects of my character in a way that helped me understand myself better, for example what my strengths and weaknesses were and how to capitalise on former and be aware of the latter. He also gave me a timeframe and specific dates that would be important regarding family, relationships and work and explained how my behaviour and the way I dealt with  these issues in my life would change during that period. A few months after the end of the session I was surprised to see that the changes that he had highlighted were happening at the exact dates he had mentioned. I listened to the recorded session again which helped me to decide how to deal with each situation.

I would definitely recommend an astrology reading with Spiros to anyone interested in gaining a better understanding of his personality and how their actions align with the planetary positions at birth.”  Athanasios Mihas, B1 Aircraft Engineer, Athens, April, 2015. 
  
  
“I've been to visit Spiros twice now, and both times I found the session very helpful. The birth chart reading itself opened quite a few doors for me, to aspects of my personality that I wasn't so aware of before, and gradually helped me gain a clearer view of my own wants and needs. Looking mostly at transits the second time helped clarify the path in front of me. At a time of great change and also confusion in my life I found the session grounding, encouraging and empowering.”  
Irene, London, March 2015
  
  
“My astrological consultation with Spiros provided me with great comfort in a difficult period in my life.  He uses astrology as it should be used, to help the client look inwards and backwards and so make sense of future possibilities. His reading of the key patterns in my chart was incisive, and I enjoyed his intuitive manner and natural warmth and wisdom.  Thank you, Spiros, I have kept my recording to listen back to and smile when this time has passed, and would recommend you to anyone seeking astrological counselling.”   ​Stella Klein, London, February 2015.
  
  
"I knew a bit about astrology before I booked a reading with Spiros but I had never been to a personal consultation before. I had just been through a major trauma in my life, losing my father, and felt like I was at a crossroads. Like most people I was looking for some guidance and reassurance that I was on the right path and Spiros was able to provide both.

Firstly he gave me a thorough and insightful overview of my character. It was very accurate and he picked up on a lot of details that rang true. Next I asked him to give me some idea of what the upcoming months had in store for me.

I had a number of different options to choose from varying from starting a new career by going back to school, moving to another city or country or staying where I was. His reading pinpointed some key dates for me and gave me an accurate template to base my decisions around. It was really helpful and I felt like it gave me the confidence to be bold and do what was truest to my character and my astrological destiny. Sometimes the biggest gift is knowing who you really are and not trying to force yourself to be something you're not.

I still regard him as a friend, as well as an advisor and would recommend his services to anyone seeking counsel on big life decisions. Whether or not you believe in astrology, sometimes just the act of dissecting your personality traits, ambitions and worries with a knowledgable and trustworthy stranger is beyond helpful. You may find it surprisingly accurate too!"  Katherine,   Publicist and Artist Manager, Torontom, Canada, February 2015.
  
  
“I chose to have an astrology reading with Spiros after meeting socially and was impressed by the enthusiasm and his commitment to his craft. I felt that I was going through a period of transition and I had hoped that the reading would shed some light on the direction I was taking my life at the time. Indeed, it helped me make sense of my journey as a whole, explained the motivation behind past choices and  offered inspiration about possible ways of proceeding  towards the future. I have seen him one more time since then and in both instances I appreciated his professional manner, the thoughtfulness of his approach and the intuitive nature of his interpretations. I also felt that there was a therapeutic element to the readings – by the end of the session it felt that some healing had been achieved. “  - Bernadette, Psychotherapist, London, Dec 2013.

Spiros is professional and passionate about astrology, so I felt totally comfortable in asking him to give me a reading.   I wasn’t sure what to expect from the session, however he was able to provide me with a better understanding of myself and my relationship with others as well as give me a detailed breakdown of future astrological events that would have an impact on my life.  Spiros makes you feel at ease and has a very welcoming nature and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone that was thinking about having an astrological reading.“  Danni McLaren, London, Oct 2012​​
