Deena Marcus-Jedamzik M.A., U.K.C.P., Dip AD
I am an integrative and Psychosynthesis therapist and I have been working as a counsellor and Psychotherapist for more than 27 years. I have clinical experience with individuals and groups across a broad spectrum of the community as well as within university's and various organisations.
How Counselling Can Help
Therapy is a powerful way of getting a clear perspective on issues and helps create change in our lives.
The Psychosynthesis approach to therapy is not to see these symptoms as bad, necessitating their removal; or cure, but to take a more holistic view.
Symptoms carry a lot of information about what is going on at a deeper level, and can be valued for alerting us to the necessity of paying attention to our inner being. Exploring symptoms in this way involves discovering what is seeking to emerge in our knowledge of ourselves, and then integrating this discovery into our day to day living.
In my private practice I work with my clients to address the dilemmas and conflicts that most of us suffer, and seek to alleviate. These issues are often experienced through their symptoms, such as:
- feelings of inadequacy
- being trapped
- depression, and
- a sense of life having no meaning.
I work on a weekly ongoing basis, and have a dedicated therapy room in my home in North London.

At present, as well as managing a private therapy and supervision practice, I am part of the team of supervisors at the Psychosynthesis and Education Trust; teach at South Bank University an MSc course on ‘Addiction Psychology and Counselling’.
I have experience in both short and long term therapeutic work and have adopted these approaches based on the needs of the client and helped them manage aspects of their personal and professional life. I have used these approaches to deal with different issues, ranging from life crisis, addiction, anxiety and stress management to focused approaches to enable successful return to work after periods of sick leave. I have also applied cognitive behavioural therapy techniques to help achieve short term focused goals.
Previously I spent eight years working as a trainer and supervisor at the Institute of Psychosynthesis in London, taught courses at ‘Psychosynthesis Studies Nederland’, supervised staff at Kaya House Crisis Centre and at the Terence Higgins Trust.
I have extensive experience working as a tutor and supervisor to students completing their Middlesex University Masters degree at the Institute of Psychosynthesis. I designed and delivered modules for this Masters degree, and also created unique training programmes and workshops.
