About me

Hi, my name is Johnny, welcome to my page. 

As an Existential therapist, I am fundamentally concerned with what matters most to you as the client. My primary aim is to offer an authentic relationship and a confidential, non-judgmental space to explore your deepest concerns and challenges. Through our exploration together, I hope we can co-construct meaning in your life of how it is simply to "Be" and to help clarify and deepen your understanding of how you respond to your lived experience. 

There are many reasons that bring people to therapy and it is always a privilege to be alongside clients as we explore their life more closely gaining a deeper understanding of themselves and their difficulties and struggles. 

As we explore and talk about these difficulties together we will begin to find new ways of tackling them and reaching resolutions that will help shift your feelings and open up ways for change and moving forward. 

Starting therapy, although perhaps initially daunting, is a huge step towards a more joyful and fulfilling life.

Member organisations

BACP

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.

Fees

Additional information

My fee is £80 for 50 minutes 

Some concessionary rates are available. If you find yourself in very difficult circumstances a lower price can be negotiated.

Further information

At the first session we will discuss what brings you to therapy and what your hopes and expectations are, and we will agree times and fees. Sessions are usually at the same time every week, and are fifty minutes to one hour long. After the initial session, if you should choose to go ahead, I would suggest a provisional commitment of six sessions. The introductory session and missed sessions are charged at the full agreed rate unless I receive forty-eight hours notice of cancellation.

I offer in-person appointments in a Covid-secure therapy space in Hendon, NW4. During the Covid-19 crisis I have been offering sessions on Zoom and we can explore which medium would work best for you.
