Dr. Rupert King UKCP reg.
Seeking therapy can be a daunting task. I offer a safe space where you can talk about your thoughts and feelings.
I practice Existential-Phenomenological psychotherapy with an emphasis on exploring lived experience, wrestling with uncertainty and finding meaning. I am interested in creativity and Jung's idea of active imagination. I believe mindfulness can help with emotional well-being and have a regular meditation practice.
As a therapist and supervisor I have worked with a range of issues including:
- Depression, emptiness and loss
- Anxiety and panic attacks
- Relationships problems
- Low self worth
- Career or midlife changes
- Reconnecting and exploring creativity
[Sept. 2018 - I have no evening slots available at the moment.]
I am an academic advisor at Metanoia Institute, where my research interests include:
- Phenomenology (in particular the works of: Bachelard, Churchill, Finlay, Max van Manen, Romanyshyn and Todres)
- Reflective journaling
- The use of photographs in research
- Heidegger (especially the later works)
- Openness and Uncertainty in Psychotherapy
Doctoral Thesis - Middlesex University:
The Clearing of Being: A Phenomenological Study of Openness in Psychotherapy (2017)
