Each person looking for therapy has different needs and concerns. You may be looking for help because you have identified a specific issue you would like to change like anxiety, depression or relationship difficulties, or you may be experiencing a sense of dissatisfaction or lack of fulfilment and searching for meaning in your life. Considering starting therapy can be a difficult step to take but finding someone who is able to understand can feel like a relief.
I offer a secure and confidential space where you can discuss whatever may be troubling you and clarify areas of difficulty without fear of judgment.
Jungian Analysis and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy with Agata Pisula BPC accredited
I have extensive clinical experience of both private practice and working as a senior clinician in various NHS settings. In my professional career I have worked with people from a variety of backgrounds experiencing a wide range of emotional and relational difficulties and psychological distress as well as providing supervision and mentoring to junior colleagues.
I believe that the psychoanalytic approach offers a real opportunity to feel more grounded in yourself and helps to equip you better to face future challenges and decisions.
This process may take time, and at times may not be an easy journey but it will ultimately facilitate internal change that allows you to feel more in charge of your own life. This approach encourages curiosity and will allow you to explore the ways in which past emotional experience can shape the way we live, work and relate in the present.
I hope that my way of working will help you feel heard and understood rather than offering advice or ready-made solutions. This focus on developing a better understanding of one’s own experience can enable you to find more purpose and meaning in life and your own ways of moving forward.

I am a Jungian Analyst and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, a member of the Society of Analytical Psychology, and registered with the British Psychoanalytic Council and International Association for Analytical Psychology, and work to their ethical and professional standards.
I am also qualified in Mentalization-Based Therapy which is a treatment proven to be particularly useful for people who suffer long-term difficulties in relationships and who experience intense emotional distress and overwhelming feelings.
It’s important that you feel comfortable with the therapist so please call or email me to arrange an initial brief telephone conversation. We will then meet for a consultation during which we will explore how we may work together before making a longer term commitment to ongoing therapy.
