With a Bachelor’s degree in Practical Psychology, I have consistently sought to expand my knowledge and skillset through diverse continuing professional development (CPD) courses in business, psychology, and well-being at renowned institutions like the University of Michigan, Yale, and Johns Hopkins.
Currently, I’m a Trainee Existential Therapist at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling (NSPC – Existential Academy), affiliated with Middlesex University in London, with a complete clinical pathway accredited by the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) in Existential therapy with an MSc degree in Psychotherapy Studies. I am actively engaged in supervised clinical practice, serving clients at the Headstrong Counselling in London and Therapy Space in Riga.
My professional journey has been diverse, with over two decades of experience in commerce and business. I have held various positions in sales and marketing and eventually founded and served as CEO of my own company in equipment and technologies for the food industry.
These experiences have given me a unique perspective and understanding of the challenges and difficulties faced by individuals from different backgrounds and high-pressure environments.
I’m passionate about researching how psychotherapy can contribute to social change and foster a better world.

"When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." (Viktor Frankl)
My practice is grounded on an existential approach to help individuals navigate life’s challenges creatively, actively and reflectively, aiming to rediscover their sense of meaning and purpose. I intend to support them in experiencing a renewed sense of aliveness, whether for the first time or rediscovered.
This is practical and experiential approach, emphasising genuine presence, emotional depth and resonance, clear communication, and straightforwardness. Instead of focusing solely on symptoms, I view them as indicators of one’s disconnection or distorted perception of reality. In existential therapy, these symptoms are seen as coping mechanisms during tough times or existential dilemmas.
There are often moments of tension, confusion or profound shifts in life that make our personal foundation seem unstable. This can be related to personal or social relationships, feeling out of sync with the world, or overwhelming emotions. These feelings can manifest as anxiety, depression, or confusion. Whether these issues are fleeting or persistent, we aim to deepen our understanding and offer new approaches and perspectives.
My approach is caring, supportive, empathic and collaborative. I stand with you, prioritising your needs and aspirations while seeking clarity and personal development on your life journey so that you can live more fully and with a clearer purpose.
Besides, I integrate additional techniques in my work, blending my academic knowledge and extensive professional and personal experiences. Such a strategy enables me to provide a tailored, client-centred practice that addresses each individual’s unique needs and concerns.
I aim to help you sort yourself out, improve your life, and enhance your well-being. To make your personal and family relationships more productive and to teach you how to effectively cope with stress, anxiety and all kinds of problems.
I provide a secure and empathetic space where you can freely discuss your concerns and better understand yourself, your relationships, and the world around you. You can discover new perspectives and opportunities, even in the most challenging situations, by delving into and comprehending your thoughts and emotions.
I offer a complimentary 15-20 minute phone or online consultation for you to determine if you would like to work with me and for me to gain a better understanding of your reasons for seeking assistance and how I can help you. Please reach out to schedule a mutually suitable time for this initial meeting.
