Carl Gustav Jung was a giant of a man and very charismatic. His career as a psychiatrist began at the renowned Burgholzli psychiatric hospital near Zurich, under the tutelage of Dr Eugen Bleuler, who had a progressive approach to the treatment of mental illness.
It was Bleuler who in 1903 suggested Jung (28 years old at the time) read the newly published book “Dream Interpretation” by a Viennese psychiatrist Dr Sigmund Freud. Although interested in the ideas of the book it was only in 1907 that Jung went to Vienna to meet Freud.
From the first moment they met, altough there was a 25 year age difference the two men formed a strong intellectual and emotional bond, one that was to last until 1913 when an intellectual argument and hurt feelings led the two men to sever contact.
Analytical Psychologist, Jungian Analyst
I am a Training Analyst and Supervisor with a well established private practice with considerable experience of working within the National Health Service.
Empathy, warmth, compassion and non judgmental support are probably common to all talking therapies and my approach varies according to the individual needs and circumstances of each person, drawing upon the various methods I have studied.
My main training is in the interpretation of dreams, known as Analytical Psychology or Jungian Analysis, which is Depth Psychology, and is the unique contribution of the Swiss Psychiatrist Dr Carl Gustav Jung. Working in this way, with the focus on one’s dreams provides an enriching and life enhancing experience offering invaluable new insights.
I am registered with the The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), a member of The Independent Group of Analytical Psychologists (IGAP), and a member of The International Association for Analytical Psychologists (IAAP) with strict adherence to their Code of Ethics and Practice, committed to maintaining professionally high standards through continuing professional development.
My background has always involved patient care, my original training was in medical physics, working in Radiotherapy & Oncology and then in Nuclear Medicine at Kings College Hospital and Guy’s Hospital for over ten years where the groundwork for my therapeutic training really began. Throughout this time I witnessed immense suffering as well as the joy and relief that healing brings.
Jungian Analyst, psychodynamic psychotherapist
As a Jungian Analyst I believe each of us has an an inner healer that can guide us towards a deeper, more emotionally fulfilling relationship with ourselves, others and the world around us – if we are open to it. Inner work is tough work, but within the problem you are facing, no matter how bad, is an opportunity to grow.
I am an IAAP accredited Jungian Analyst and a member of the AJA. I have an MA in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice (Roehampton) and an Advanced Diploma in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy (WPF). I also have a Certificate in Supervision (SAP).
I am engaged in ongoing research and writing. I participate in peer support programmes and ongoing professional development to ensure that my practice in central London affords the best informed care.
