My Approach

****. FEBRUARY 2021 *******
If you are interested in the opportunity of reduced fee Psychoanalysis (work in depth (4 times weekly) ) please contact me.

I have an opportunity for someone living in North London or Hertfordshire to have a four-times-a-week, Jungian analysis at a relatively low cost.

I am an experienced psychodynamic psychotherapist with a busy private practice in St. Albans and London. I am currently engaged in further training as a Jungian Analyst with The Society of Analytical Psychology . As part of the training I will work with a client under the close individual supervision of a senior Jungian analyst. Consequently the client will receive detailed and careful attention during the analysis.

The sessions would take place in my St.Albans consulting rooms and the fee would be reduced based on the understanding that we would work together four times a week for at least a year.

If this opportunity is of interest to you or someone you know please contact me at lifely@ntlworld.com

The first step after enquiry will be for us to meet to discuss the possibility of working together. Please note however, that your enquiry does not commit you, nor can I commit to offering you the analysis without a thorough discussion between ourselves and the agreement of the supervising analyst.


About Me

My approach is client centred, confidential and collaborative. I offer a secure and confidential space in which to discuss whatever it is that may be troubling you: be it anxiety, depression, long-term emotional difficulties, or a lack of fulfilment or a sense of meaning or purpose in life or finding a transition in your life circumstances difficult.

People who come to see me have experienced a range of issues in life. These include relationship difficulties (both heterosexual and LGBTQ+), post-natal depression, low self-confidence or self-esteem, difficulty communicating feelings and emotions, suicidal feelings, addiction, abuse, self-harm and eating disorders, unexplained health symptoms, issues relating to having been at boarding school and trauma. I have worked for several years in the voluntary sector, private practice, a secondary school and the NHS (psychotherapy unit and for GPs). Some concerns can benefit from a focussed short-term approach, but others may benefit from a broader approach that also takes into account an individual’s personality as a whole as well as their upbringing and any particular life events.

I am registered with The British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and am an Accredited Member of the BACP. I am undertaking further postgraduate studies at the Society of Analytical Psychology in Adult Analysis

To make an initial appointment please telephone me or email. I will respond as soon as I can.
