Jungian Analysis, Psychotherapy and Clinical Supervision in South West/South London

"Fantasy is the creative function - the living form is a result of fantasy. Fantasy is a pre-stage of the symbol, but it is an essential characteristic of the symbol that it is not mere fantasy. We count upon fantasy to take us out of the impasse; for though people are not always eager to recognise the conflicts that are upsetting their lives, the dreams are always at work trying to tell on the one hand of the conflict, and on the other hand of the creative fantasy that will lead to the way out."

~Carl Jung. "Introduction to Jungian Psychology. Notes of the Seminar on Analytical Psychology Given in 1925, p. 11."

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, Phenomenological, Psychological Type, Transpersonal, Gestalt and System approaches to bring new meaning and purpose to emotional and mental suffering. As a fully qualified and accredited Jungian Analyst (IAAP), Integrative Psychotherapist (, 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 Analytical Psychology practice.

Treatment Areas
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.

"'I cannot define for you what God is," Jung wrote to me just before he died. "I can only say that my work has proved empirically that the pattern of God exists in every man [woman and child], and that this pattern has at its disposal the greatest of all energies for transformation and transfiguration of natural being. Not only the meaning of life, but of renewal. Even institutions depend on conscious relationship with this pattern in the collective unconscious.'" (Jung's letter to Laurence van Der Post, "Jung and the Story of our time", pp. 216-217).

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.

First Steps
My work as an Analytical Psychologist also includes Psychodynamic Clinical 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 Analytical Psychology 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.
