' The mysterious truth that the spirit is the life of the body seen from within, and the body the outward manifestation of the life of the spirit - the two being really one.' CG Jung

BESPOKE THERAPY.

 

I am a fully qualified psychotherapist in the tradition of CG Jung. I believe that the quality of the therapeutic relationship is central to the therapy and should be based on non-judgement, trust and respect.

As an overview to my approach I also recognise the interconnected nature of mind, body, soul and spirit. I am a member off and work to the code of ethics as set out by the UKCP.  I trained for five years with the Guild Of Analytical Psychology and Spirituality.

Since completing my training I have been very committed to continual professional development and my own spiritual and creative journey. I am a meditator and practice yoga on a regular basis. I am rooted in the Christian tradition, with an active interest in the mystical side of all wisdom traditions.

Over the last six years I have had experience with a wide range of issues. I have particular experience in working with depression, anxiety, stress, panic attacks, anger issues, feelings of low self-worth and low self-esteem, relationship problems, sexuality, body and identity issues and those who are struggling with a lack of purpose and meaning in their lives. 

In working with my clients, my aim is to meet them with empathy and respect and without judgement, valuing their uniqueness and individuality, whilst tailoring the therapy to their specific needs. 

 

People choose Jungian-oriented psychotherapy or analysis for a variety of reasons. As with other kinds of therapy, Jungian work seeks to help people with their personal problems.

For some, the decision is initiated by a life event that has had a particularly painful effect. Others feel out of touch with themselves or feel that life seems to lack a sense of personal meaning. Many want to know themselves more deeply and lead a more satisfying life. While analysis is a commitment to self-understanding, the length of time involved is individual. My interest is to assist individuals to find a center in their lives from which they can live from a place of meaning and authenticity. From a Jungian perspective, symptoms that arise from our conflicts have meaning. It is possible to understand that our suffering and woundedness can lead us to discover our gifts. The scope of the practice includes on-going analysis, as well as supportive psychotherapy related to career and relationship concerns.
