Jungian Analysis, Psychotherapy and Clinical Supervision in South West/South London
though we could fool each other, we should consider -
lest the parade of our mutual life get lost in the dark.
or a breaking line may discourage them back to sleep;
the signals we give - yes or no, or maybe -
should be clear: the darkness around us is deep."
from The Way It Is: New and Selected Poems. Copyright © 1998 by William Stafford.
Welcome to my Jungian Analysis and Psychotherapy South West London web pages. The practice is devoted to mending the division and despair that comes out of any kind of trauma. This includes taking a relational approach to analysis on some kinds of addiction, depression, anxiety, memory lapses, mental fog, family and gender issues, partnership, parenting, mid life crisis, life direction, and repeated patterns. The work I am describing offers serious consideration of your life and attending circumstances with you as a co-participant.
My Jungian Analyst's palette draws from Archetypal, Psychoanalytical, Phenomenology, Psychological Type, Transpersonal, Gestalt and System approaches to bring new meaning and purpose to emotional and psychological suffering. As a fully qualified and accredited Jungian Analyst (IAAP), Integrative Psychotherapist (Re.vision), and Professional Member of the (Association of Jungian Analysts London Central West & Southwest), I work with the symbolic, psyche's imagination and her discontents in life, love, work, body and soul in my South West London practice.
This means working with the masculine, feminine and non-gender performance as part of the psyche across a range of emotional and psychological impasses to do with critical junctures such as loss, identity, transitions, relationship and well-being, including past trauma seemingly forgotten. Often this involves focusing on feelings in the body that are displacing the mind. Jungian Analysis is known for building a relationship with the unconscious.
Treatment Outcomes ~ (See also Expectations page for recent studies on the effectiveness of Jungian Analysis and Psychotherapy).
The following is a modest short list of some observed outcomes in a process of finding creativity and integrity:
Dreaming, remembering your dreams and finding meaning in them.
Reconnecting with lost feelings, thoughts and desires.
Allowing yourself to paint, draw, write and play.
Remembering forgotten events, often in a new context.
Discovering new purpose.
Learning to speak the unspeakable and bear the unbearable.
Finding new paths.
Emergence of new perspectives and values.
A capacity for meaning making.
In addition to providing Jungian Analysis and Psychotherapy, I also offer private Psychodynamic Supervision. I have supervised, tutored and mentored trainees at Westminster Pastoral Foundation and taught at the Association of Jungian Analysts and the International School of Analytical Psychology in Zurich.
All work in my Jungian Analysis and Psychotherapy practice in South West London is conducted in confidence. We might meet once, twice, three or four times a week depending on the nature and complexity of symptoms. All sessions are 50 minutes. The first session, an assessment, takes a bit longer. A way forward commences through an initial email which starts a process of discovery. You know you're ready to begin Jungian Analysis or Psychotherapy when you're no longer satisfied with the way life happens to you and seek a more creative relationship with your self and the world.
I offer a competitive range of fees intended to support people at many levels of income and all fees are means tested.
