About me

“We cannot change anything until we accept it. Condemnation does not liberate, it oppresses.” (C. Jung)

It can be difficult to find or sustain the real you. I believe therapy not only offers a space for processing confused, difficult or painful feelings but also helps self-discovery and self-development. I offer a safe and compassionate space, where you can explore things you may never have talked about before.

My priority is to provide a confidential, empathic and accepting atmosphere in which you are free to question, reflect upon and express your real self. Through a relationship built on trust, we work together to find your own path in the maze of life.

“You can’t go back and change the beginning but you can start where you are and change the ending.” (C. S. Lewis)

Some of the issues I have worked with include but are not limited to:

coping with anxiety and panic attacks; feeling sad; relationship challenges; infidelity and break-up; depression, low moods and suicidal thoughts; bereavement, grief and any kind of loss; childhood experiences and trauma; identity crisis and questioning a sense of self; aspects of LGBTQ, gender and sex diversity; supporting self-awareness and self-esteem; dreaming and nightmares; workplace difficulties, anger and conflict management;

I have experience in offering therapy online, by phone and in person. I provide both time-limited and open-ended therapy for adults. Besides working as a private practitioner, I also volunteer for an NHS-based counselling service.

I can offer therapy in Hungarian as well as in English if you would rather speak in your native language.

I am an LGBTQ-affirmative therapist.

I am a qualified Integrative Therapist and an accredited registered member of the National Counselling Society and a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy. I adhere to their ethical codes.

Training, qualifications & experience

"Freedom is what you do with what's been done to you." (Jean-Paul Sartre)

BA in Education with Psychology

Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling: Integrative Pathway

Certificate in Counselling Skills

Certificate in Online and Telephone Counselling

Certificate in Mental Health First Aid

Being an Integrative Therapist means that I can utilise my understanding of the Psychodynamic, Humanistic and CBT approaches. 

However, my specific approach is always tailored to my client's therapeutic needs as I recognise that each person is unique with a multitude of distinct experiences and feelings.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.

National Counselling & Psychotherapy Society (NCPS)

The National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society

This Not For Profit association of counsellors and psychotherapists aim to support the counselling profession, members and training organisations.

In 2013 the NCS register was accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under the Accredited Voluntary Register Scheme. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)

BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).

Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.

Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.

All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

“Every person must choose how much truth he can stand” (Irvin D. Yalom)

I am especially interested in providing support for identity and personality issues. I can help you by creating an open, supportive and healing space to process your feelings and strengthen your identity. Together we explore your experiences and the way these shape the person you are and wish to become.

Unable to express or accept your true identity may generate a myriad of unwanted feelings such as guilt, low self-esteem or anger. Therapy can help you to uncover your strengths and develop new skills that will allow you to deal with the challenges that arise in life. In our work together I invite you to benefit from creative techniques, such as ‘dreamwork’, ‘chair work’, ‘therapeutic journaling’ and using ‘images and symbols’.

Further information

In-Person counselling in London:

Battersea, Earl's Court, Hammersmith, the City

Face-to-face counselling is a unique experience of connecting with someone who is authentically there for you in real-time and space. It is an invitation for working through your issues and gaining a different perspective. I offer therapy in three different locations in London.

Remote counselling: online or by telephone

Remote counselling is a flexible way to seek help as it can be arranged in any private, comfortable and safe environment, such as your home or car. You could use head or earphones to reduce the extent of our conversation being overheard. Remote therapy is quite flexible in terms of time as there is no need to spend time travelling and there is greater flexibility regarding availability.

Whichever format you choose, therapy offers a space where you can feel understood without judgement, confidentially explore your feelings and problems and discover a way forward.

Wheelchair user access
Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

My counselling room in Hammersmith, London W6 0DT is fully wheelchair accessible with two disabled parking bays in front of the entrance.
