Edward Marriott, M. Inst. Psychoanal., BPC registered
What do you do when you’ve talked to friends and family and nothing seems to help? As a psychoanalyst, I am trained and experienced not only to work alongside you to understand and deal with the causes of your distress; but also know how difficult it can be to make that first call or email. If you contact me on 07948 497072 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I will respond sensitively, promptly and in confidence.
I am a qualified, experienced and professionally registered psychoanalyst. Having first trained as a psychotherapist at WPF Therapy, I trained as a psychoanalyst at the British Psychoanalytical Society, the oldest and arguably most respected psychoanalytic training institution in the world. I offer time-limited or open-ended psychotherapy and psychoanalysis, working from comfortable and spacious consulting rooms just two minutes' walk from Oxford Circus tube station. I also work in Acton, west London, very close to Acton Central Overground station, if this location suits you better.
My work is rooted in the conviction that the unconscious exerts a powerful force on our everyday lives and actions, and that much depression or other psychological difficulties stem from feelings that may be beyond our immediate understanding. Psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic therapy aim at understanding these forces with the aim of relieving distress and has a powerful evidence base.
If you feel that psychoanalysis or psychoanalytic psychotherapy may be helpful, please do call me on 07948 497072 or email me at email@example.com and we can fix an initial consultation.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained in psychoanalysis at the Institute of Psychoanalysis in London, and am a full member of the British Psychoanalytical Society and the International Psychoanalytic Association. Prior to this I trained in psychotherapy at WPF Therapy. As well as working in private practice I have experience of working as a psychotherapist in the NHS. I am the author of numerous books and articles and am also on the staff of the London Clinic of Psychoanalysis.
