My name is Hanni and I am an experienced associate therapist at Therapy Harley Street in London and Godmanchester in Cambridgeshire.
In these times of coronavirus fear, affliction and anxieties, I would like to reassure all my clients and anyone looking in to therapy, not to suffer alone! Please feel welcome to book sessions or to contact me if you have any questions about the current situation. At my practice on Harley Street my colleagues and I are working hard to support and guide people through this time.
Some people want a counsellor to be with them through current life events, others want to work through past life events, and some others just want one or two sessions to vent or seek clarity on a specific issue that's been niggling at them. I offer both long and short term counselling to suit individual needs and welcome anyone to make initial contact with me.
During my career, I have been fortunate to gain a wealth of experience supporting people of all ages and from various walks of life through depression, eating disorders, loss, relationship difficulties, domestic violence, sexual abuse, PTS/PTSD, self-harm, self-esteem issues and coping with major life changes.
I have worked with clients through their suicidal periods and supported referrals to mental health teams, medical professionals and safeguarding teams on child protection issues. I have often been told that I make counselling an enjoyable, empowering and insightful experience for my clients. I place a lot of emphasis on getting to know my clients and giving them the space and time they need to explore, be silent, express and most of all, to be heard.
My clinical supervisor works regularly with me on my case load and has been a fantastic source of knowledge, support and guidance since the beginning of our professional relationship in February ’13. I have learned so much from all the different clients I have worked with and know for sure that I will never stop learning!
I am passionate about the work I do and the people I work with.
On a more personal level, I feel that my international upbringing has helped me to develop a natural ability to understand and connect with people. I am resilient, intuitive, a deep thinker and possess excellent interpersonal skills. I strive to meet the BACP personal qualities guidelines both at work and in my personal life. I speak a number of European languages and I enjoy expressing myself through art, cooking and the music I listen to. Learning and expanding my mind is very important to me. I enjoy reading the works of learned authors, socialising with a few close friends, and remaining open to new experiences.
“I can understand another soul only by transforming my own, as one transforms one’s hand by placing it in another’s.” (Bachelard 1986: 118)
I speak English (native language), Luxembourgish, French, German and Finnish. I would be happy to work with clients using any combination of those too.
I always look forward to new inquiries. Warm regards,

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
