Jungian Analyst, Gestalt Psychotherapist and Clinical Supervisor in West London
I work with individuals and adolescents over 14 years.
The last few years have been difficult for all of us. The pandemic itself and all its ramifications is something we are all still struggling to get used to. It has jolted our previous held assumptions about life, and how to live it. We are all still dealing with high levels of anxiety and life events continue to impinge on us relentlessly. Brexit, the wars in Ukraine and elsewhere, the situation in Israel and Gaza and the economy make life difficult and uncertain.
People come to therapy and counselling because something has happened to derail the lives they have been pursuing:
- work stress
- health issues
- relationship issues
- depression or anxiety
- career issues
- identity crisis
Some people feel they have not been living their lives to the full; some feel they have never quite found themselves. This is where JUNGIAN ANALYSIS and PSYCHOTHERAPY are appropriate.
Jungian Analysts - Carl Jung called us Analytical Psychologists - are interested in all the ways we communicate and know things. This means the things that are just out of awareness too. As well as talking about your life, we will also look at your dreams, images and symbols to help decode what your unconscious is trying to help you know. This is often really interesting and fun - and to be honest, sometimes difficult. I will ensure we go at a pace that feels safe to you. Trusting might well be an important issue to look at. Many people have felt betrayed at times in the past, and it takes time to feel secure. Your safety and confidentiality are paramount to me. It is important for our work that we form a relationship. We make a commitment to one another to use what happens - misunderstandings, getting angry, feeling dependent and because we keep going and continue to try and understand the complex being that is you, there is the opportunity for tremendous insight and growth.
I am happy to work on line if you feel unable to get to my consulting room or live further away.
I am committed to providing counselling and psychotherapy and analysis in a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment. I belong to various professional associations - the Association of Jungian Analysts (AJA), the IAAP, the UKCP and I am a senior member of BACP. I abide by all their stringent codes of ethics. I am qualified to supervise.
I offer both day and evening appts on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays in Brentford, West London which is in easy reach of Chiswick, Acton, Ealing and Sunbury. My room is close to South Ealing Station on the Picadilly Line and is served by a number of buses, 65, 237, 267, from Shepherds Bush, Gunnersbury, Chiswick, and Hounslow. There is easy parking.
