About me

I am Psychological Counsellor, Psychotherapist, and Honorary Counselling Psychologist. I provide Existential therapy, Trauma work, and Mindfulness training to individual and couples, in a short and long term therapy.

In my approach I help clients to explore their existence on four existential dimensions: physical, psychological, social, and spiritual. On each existential plane we will contemplate the main themes of existential therapy: death, freedom, isolation, meaninglessness, and relationships:

The aim of therapy is to:

  • Encourage client to re-define one's existence, values and beliefs, and to reach a deeper level of self understanding and self awareness.
  • Help the to become more authentic and honest with oneself and with others.
  • Encourage to acknowledge and to act on one's freedom and talents.
  • Help to come to terms with the past experiences, to heal past traumas, and to learn the lessons of the past.
  • Help to realise the abundant potentiality of the present situation and to begin using the resources available in the present.
  • Aims to assist in search for a meaningful direction in one's existence.

Training, qualifications & experience

Overall I have 11 years of experience in psychology field, and 7 years of experience in my own therapeutic practice (www.counselling-psychology.org.uk).

I have 2:1 in BSc Psychology, and at present I am trained as a Doctor of Counselling Psychology at a Professional Doctorate program for Counselling and Psychotherapy at Regent"s University London. I am a member of British Psychological Society and the Society of Existential Analysis.
