My Approach

Hello, my name is Juliet Rosenfeld. Jargon isn't helpful when trying to explain what a psychotherapist does, so I hope what follows is simple and useful. If you have a question, please do email me.

I work as a therapist in North London and the Cotswolds, from consulting rooms which are both comfortable and private. I see all sorts of patients for all sorts of problems. I like to use the word patient as psychotherapy is both a treatment, which can make someone feel better, as well as a relationship, between a clinician and someone who is feeling help-less in some way and needs assistance. I don't use the word client, as it implies something different to me, and doesn't capture the very particular relationship between a therapist and a patient.
I work with people who want help to understand their feelings better, normally as a relationship in their life, of some kind has broken down. Sometimes people come in a state of great sadness, distress or depression and feel they urgently need to talk and be heard, at other times, people are on more of an 'even keel' but find something is really bothering them, which they can't resolve alone.
In terms of my approach - I am psychodynamically trained but also have what is called an integrative background.
This means I am interested in your unconscious, or 'internal world' and try to create a space where you can bring whatever - anything that is preoccupying, bothering or worrying you. I think listening to our internal world carefully offers so much to our understanding of who we are.
Together, we will try to work out - not what you already know the problems are - but what else is going on, and what has sometimes got very lost. When our feelings get hidden and we cannot express them, we can end up feeling unheard, and very bad. After long years of doing this work, I know how hard it is to find your way when you are overwhelmed with feelings that cannot be processed alone. I very much hope my experience can bring hope and help.

About Me

Originally I trained as a linguist and I believe it is a love of languages that partly led me to want to become a psychotherapist. I am motivated to understand what others feel and how they express themselves, and I also love reading and writing, which are also ways in which we express and feel emotions. In pragmatic terms, I have experience of both the commercial world and the public service as prior to training I worked in advertising and government.These experiences are very helpful in understanding how work settings can sometimes present enormous pressures and difficulties for patients at a profound level that can be hard to see until they are unpacked in therapy.
For a decade now I have worked with individuals and couples in various settings in London, including honorary therapist posts at Camden Psychotherapy Unit and the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust, but largely it is in private practice that I have built my work.

I work with

  • Individuals

Special Interests

Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.

I am especially interested in helping those wanting to talk about a terminal illness, their own or - a loved one - and how they feel affected by both this and partner, bereavement. I have written and spoken widely on the subject of grief and mourning, and I try to be very supportive to those who come in this particularly difficult state. Bereavement is a developmental stage - we will probably all go through it at some point - but we are generally very unprepared when it happens. I draw on personal experience of widowhood/partner loss which has very much affected how I work clinically with the bereaved, and have an understanding of the magnitude of bereavement on someone's mind. Death is anomalous, and unlike other 'life losses' and I treat it as such, and with extreme care and an knowledge of just how hard it is to bear.
I am also especially interested in love - the counterpart to grief. People often come to see me because a relationship, current or in the past is over, or ended, but still haunts them. I aim to be non judgemental and to listen, rather than to shut down someone, who may already be feeling shame or despair because of a relationship they have been in.
