In my work as a Jungian analyst, I seek to create a reflective space for adult clients in which the complexities of life can be explored openly, in confidence and without judgement. In a quiet way, the unsung purpose of Jungian analysis and psychotherapy is the individual's release from difficulties of the past which inhabit the present. This type of talking therapy is forward looking, seeking to animate and recover creative potential through an unconscious process described by Jung as individuation.
I have been working in this field for 20 years and am a training analyst, which means that in addition to therapeutic work, I am actively involved in the training of Jungian psychotherapists and future analysts at the Society of Analytical Psychology
My consulting rooms are close to the Imperial War Museum on the south bank of the Thames. I see people on for therapy on a short-term or long-term basis; we meet initially for one or two sessions to think together about the way forward.
You may get in touch with me via this directory, my website www.alison-masters.co.uk, or the members' directories of the SAP, BPC or UKCP.
I respond within 24 hours to all inquiries which are, of course, treated in confidence.
Training, qualifications & experience
One of the requirements for analytic work is that practitioners must have extensive experience, as a patient, of the psychotherapy they train to practice. Personal analysis leads to change. This was certainly the case for me. I became a member of the Society of Analytical Psychology in 2003 and am now a training analyst. I have worked and supervised in the NHS and recently held a supervisory appointment at the counselling organisation and trainer, WPF.
I am professionally registered with the BPC (British Psychoanalytic Council), the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy), the IAAP (International Association for Analytical Psychology) and my training body, the SAP (Society of Analytical Psychology).
