Are You Contemplating Psychotherapy or Jungian Analysis?
Ah, that's the great puzzle."
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland
Many people seek psychotherapeutic help - the so called "talking cure" - at some point in their lives; they want a professional relationship which can provide the necessary support to explore and make sense of perplexing feelings and experiences within a safe context, such as:-
- Feeling stuck or at a crossroads in life
e.g. mid-life crisis; untapped or blocked creativity.
- Struggling with internal conflicts
e.g. critical inner commentaries about oneself or others; inwardly torn between opposing positions.
- Recognising repeating patterns
e.g. troubling relationships; self-defeating ways of living; bouts of depression; anxiety attacks.
- Struggling with significant life change or stress
e.g. parenthood; bereavement; promotion; divorce; elderly parents; chronic ill-health.
- A lack of meaning or purpose in life
e.g. depression; despair; disorientation.
- A symptom, problem or experience that can no longer be ignored
e.g. troublesome dreams; social anxiety; stress related illness; low self esteem; trauma; abuse.
- Curiosity, wanting to undertake a journey of self discovery.

Working as a Jungian Analyst....
I find that the experience and insights gained from my rigorous and intensive Jungian analytic training is beneficial to all aspects of clinical work whether it is time-limited focussed, open-ended psychotherapy or a full Jungian analysis.
In addition to a thorough grounding in psychoanalytic psychotherapy, I have a particular interest in Jungian understandings such as:-
- the important and valuable influence of the unconscious upon all aspects of the personality and conscious life;
- the creativity and potential meaning expressed by the imagination, symptoms and dreams:
- the psychological development that occurs through relationships.
These factors all draw our attention to disturbing but potentially creative conflicts within us; these need to be understood as part of a healthy drive towards growth and transformation.
I bring the same commitment and expertise to the work as a Jungian analyst. This has been honed by many years clinical experience, a rigorous analytic clinical training and ongoing professional development.
