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


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.

Accredited register membership

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

Accredited Register Scheme

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

This therapist has indicated that they belong to an Accredited Register.


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.
