Jared Green (MA, UKCP)
37-41 Gower Street
I imagine you're reading this because you need support. Either for an external situation you are facing, or something more internal which is troubling you. I'm glad you've found my profile and I hope I can assist.
I offer therapy to individuals in Kings Cross and near Gower Street. I work from a non-judgemental and supportive position. I'm professional, masters qualified and UKCP accredited. In my work ethics and confidentiality are paramount.
I have experience with these issues:
- Work and workplace problems
- Relationship challenges - including intimacy and romantic relationships
- Sexuality and gender issues
- Meaningless, purpose and ageing and lifestage issues
- Grief and loss
- Addictions and compulsivity - eating, smoking, drinking, apps & internet, work, sex and drugs
- Childhood abuse and neglect
We are often alerted to issues such as the above when we encounter symptoms like anxiety, or depression or we notice repeating patterns in our lives. Sometimes they show up when we feel a sense of "stuckness" or underlying feelings of "dis-ease". In my practice I tend to work both on the underlying issues as well as the presenting symptoms .
What sort of therapist am I?
I am friendly and open and believe therapy works best when there is a strong, authentic connection. I am emotionally and cognitively intelligent and I commit to applying myself fully to assisting you in your journey. I work mainly within the talking mode, but also have experience with creative techniques like meditation, art therapy and creative visualisation.
What theoretical model do you use?
I am trained as an Integrative therapist, which means I am trained in psychodynamic, humanistic and transpersonal schools of therapy and draw on each as appropriate. My way of working is holistic: I believe we are not a separate body and mind, rather that our entire being is relevant to therapy. This means while thoughts, memories and beliefs are important, exploring feelings: as experienced in our bodies, in our imagination and in our dreams, can be really useful. I find clients often have trouble "knowing what they feel" and these techniques help to resolve that, leading to living better and realising potential.
The most useful way to decide if you would like to work with me may well be to meet face to face. The first step is to have an introductory phone call which is free of charge and lasts no more than 20 minutes. At that point we may decide to meet for an introductory session, which would not commit you in any way.
To get in touch use the "email me" button or the phone number above. If emailing for an introductory phone call please provide your number and a few times which might work for a phone call. All calls and emails are confidential and read only by myself.
