As an Existential Psychotherapist & Counselling Psychologist I meet adults of all ages and backgrounds. I offer long-term Psychotherapy, focused and brief Psychological Counselling, which can include elements of coaching and mediation and Supervision for professionals working in the private and public sector.
As an Energy Psychotherapist I also offer Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) also known as tapping alongside other energy modalities, which are particularly suited for stress, anxiety and trauma related symptoms.
Counselling and Psychotherapy is about creating a space for calm and considered reflections and in-depth conversations. In an atmosphere of genuine curiosity the aim is to clarify whatever issue the client is bringing.
Quite often the quality or lack of relationship and connection are at the heart of the matter, which over a period of time can manifest in anxiety, depressive symptoms, low self-esteem, lack of confidence, stress, feelings of isolation, lack of meaning, addictive and self-harming behaviours to name a few. People also report a lack of creativity or purpose in their lives or may find it hard to adapt to change.
Whatever brings you to therapy, setting some dedicated time aside with a professional offers the possibility of perspective and clarification.
Training, qualifications & experience
I completed all of my training in 2007 at Regent’s School of Psychotherapy and Psychology where I gained a Master and Post Masters Degree in Existential Counselling Psychology and an Advanced Diploma in Existential Psychotherapy.
As a Psychotherapist I am accredited by the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP) (membership no. 08159916) and as a Counselling Psychologist I am registered with the British Psychological Society (BPS/hcpc) (membership no. 147062) and their Division of Counselling Psychology.
I am also a Supervisor on the Register of Applied Psychology Practice Supervisors of the British Psychological Society.
I follow the code of ethics of my registering organisation the Society for Existential Analysis.
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.
British Psychological Society
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
Accredited register membership
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.
Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Therapy is a space where all sorts of dilemmas, problems, worries and difficulties can be talked about and clarified. Sometimes people have been given or have a name for their difficulty, at other times people are not sure what it is that doesn't feel right. Whatever it is that made you contact a therapist, it is a good place to start. My aim is to provide you with a dedicated and careful exploration of the issues at hand and help clarify what may be helpful at this point in your life.

When I work
I am of Swiss-British-Italian heritage, which has given me particular insights and interests in questions of identity, cultures and the experience of migration. I speak fluently Swiss-German and German and have an intimate knowledge of the Italian and French language and culture.
As a regular practitioner of meditation for the past 20 years I focus on the quality of Being and mindful living. Both Eastern and Existential philosophies inform my work as well as Gestalt theory, the Neurobiology of Trauma, Energy Psychotherapy, and embodied practices such as Yoga, Experiential Anatomy, Body-Mind-Centering and Authentic Movement.
