ABOUT ME

I am a British Jungian Analyst in private practice since 2003, including three years at the IMD Business School in Lausanne. I graduated from eight years of full-time training in Analytical (Jungian) Psychology, firstly at the C.G. Jung Institute in Küsnacht, and then at ISAPZURICH.

My mother tongue is English, but I have also worked in German and occasionally French.

You can find out more about my professional background and engagement here.

ANALYTICAL SESSIONS

We can schedule the location, frequency and duration of sessions, whether in person or remotely via Skype, FaceTime or VSee (most private and secure), to suit your changing needs and circumstances. Typically this would be about an hour per week.

To help you to decide whether Jungian psychoanalysis in general, and what I offer in particular, seem to be what you are looking for, please explore this website, especially the information below and here.

GETTING IN TOUCH

Even if what you have read on this website feels right for you, I appreciate that it can be difficult to take the first step.

I therefore offer a no-obligation initial session to get to know each other a little and to explore what brings you into analysis. This counts as your first session if you wish to continue, but there is no charge if you don't.

I can be contacted via this page, alternatively you can email me directly here or phone me.

IS ANALYSIS FOR YOU?

Understand the options

I offer Jungian psychoanalysis ("analysis"), but not psychotherapy. One is not "better" than the other, but they do differ significantly. It is therefore important to distinguish clearly between them to choose the approach that best meets your personal needs.

Health insurance

Supplemental health insurance may provide limited cover for psychotherapy, but not for analysis. Both are confidential, but anything involving health insurance goes on your medical record, whereas analysis has no external reporting requirements.

Analysis

Jungian psychoanalysis, based upon a depth-psychological model, accompanies the self-regulating psyche on its journey in a way that is dialectical, purposive and constructive, using the resources that you have.

Psychotherapy

Psychotherapy applies the “medical model” to treat psychopathology (psychological disorders according to the standardised diagnostic criteria of ICD-10, DSM-5 etc.) in a clinical, causal, reductive way.

Different goals

The goal of Jungian analysis is personal growth, which can reveal a deeper meaning to your life, identify your unique personal path, realise your potential for change, and enhance your appreciation of yourself, others and the world around you. The goal of psychotherapy is to feel happy or feel better, to (re-)gain functionality.

Different atmosphere

Unlike psychotherapy in a clinical setting, my analytical practice is small, cosy, independent and flexible, assuring you of the greatest possible individual attention to detail and continuity. I focus on the person, not the symptom, and never forget that everyone I work with is unique.
