Lindsey C Harris
I am a Jungian psychotherapist and analyst, working for 20 years, one-to-one with individuals from aged 18 to 80+. I have a private confidential consulting room in South Farnham. I also work online, particularly at the time of the coronavirus epidemic. I believe that we each have the capacity to heal ourselves and to feel more whole and fulfilled in life. Psychotherapy can help you reach these inner hidden reserves that may currently feel inaccessible, and help you to reach your potential.
In psychotherapy we discuss your needs, wants and hopes for the future. You can speak about whatever is troubling you, where you feel stuck, what you wish to change. Together we look into your present life situation, and reflect upon your childhood experiences, losses, and past traumae.
This is deep work, and may take time, so I offer an open-ended service where longer term support may be needed. Short, medium or long-term therapy is available, as is 2 or 3-times weekly analysis where appropriate.
We talk about your dreams, often the best direct source of psychological healing. Dr C G Jung, Swiss founder of analytical psychology, laid great store by dreams, knowing they reveal through symbols the workings of the unconscious, offering a mirror reflecting our present circumstances.
As an analytical psychologist, I have a particular interest in imagination, fantasy, dreams and creativity, which can help bring about psychological change. My special interest is using images from mythology, fairy tales, alchemy, art and stories to assist and amplify the work of therapy. The symbolic meanings reveal paths of psychological change, with the potential leading towards inner spiritual transformation. Psychotherapy is a search for the soul.
Your confidentiality is ensured; my work accords with the Code of Ethics of UKCP and of the Association of Jungian Analysts.
I also offer classical Jungian Supervision to practicing or training counsellors and therapists.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
I work with client's dreams, which are a means of revealing the ways of the unconscious psyche, sometimes a way to hear what the soul longs for. Though it is helpful if a client can remember their dreams it is not essential to have dreams before you come into psychotherapy. Sometimes dreams may begin to be recalled spontaneously in response to entering psychotherapy, as you begin to work on yourself and your inner world.
£60.00 per session
My initial fee is £60 for the first session. A session normally lasts 50 minutes.
Thereafter, if we decide and agree to begin a course of therapy, fees are negotiable depending upon your circumstance. Occasional low-cost fee opportunity may arise, depending upon availability, and only after an initial meeting and discussion with the individual client. Please telephone me to discuss.
Flexible working hours. There is some limited availabilty for evening work.
I have led seminars in various Jungian topics, including an Introduction to Jung's Model of the Psyche, and Contemporary Aspects of Alchemy, and alchemy in art. I have also led workshops in Mandala painting, and hosted Social dreaming matrices.
I have been a practicing artist for many years, as well as lecturing in History of Art. Formerly, I was an Arts Development Officer in local government.
I designed the illustrations for two books written by psychotherapist Alan Mulhern :
Healing Intelligence, the Spirit in Psychotherapy - Working with Darkness and Light (Karnac 2012) and The Sower and the Seed: Reflections on the Development of Consciousness (Karnac 2015).
I served for several years on the Council of the Association of Jungian Analysts, and on the Executive committee of the Confederation for Analytical Psychology. I was joint Coordinator of the Champernowne Summer Course for Psychotherapy and the Arts, which took place at Hothorpe Hall Leicestershire in August 2018.
