Cecile Buckenmeyer, Jungian Analyst, UKCP reg.
I am a Jungian analyst and psychotherapist in private practice in Lancaster.
I work with clients experiencing the inevitable human suffering caused by bereavement, illness, destructive relationships, work-related stress and life changes; and with clients who choose to engage with the unconscious and address existential issues.
I anchor my practice in my own inner work and life experience – having worked in business, lived in different countries and generally tried to understand what it is to ‘be myself’. I believe that therapy is a mutual process where together with clients, we look for a way out of the storms, the darkness and the sticky patches that would otherwise prevent us from experiencing life fully.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the C. G. Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland. I am a member of the IAAP (International Association for Analytical Psychology), of IGAP (Independent Group of Analytical Psychologists) and a full clinical member of the UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy).
I also have an MSc in the Psychodynamics of Human Development offered jointly by Birkbeck College, University of London and the British Association of Psychotherapists, and a Postgraduate Diploma in Coaching Psychology.

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Jungian analysis is the form of psychotherapy developed by Carl Gustav Jung.
C.G. Jung is well known for his ideas about the psychological meaning of dreams, about personality types (which inspired the Myers-Briggs Personality Type) and about the collective unconscious.
As a Jungian Analyst, I work with dreams, images and imagination, because they are an expression of our potential, our hopes as well as our struggles and limitations.
Dreams and images are a starting point. They guide us and help us identify what the real issues are. Through an active use of our resources and imagination, we work towards building a more complete, fulfilling and meaningful sense of self.
'One has to abandon the widespread prejudice that the psyche is identical with consciousness.'
CG Jung, Collected Works Vol. 14
I charge £60 per hour for individual psychotherapy. A reduced rate may be available to people on low income. I charge for the first meeting only if we agree to work together.
The format and cost of your therapy is discussed during our first appointment.
My practice is on Castle Hill in Lancaster, a few minutes walk from Lancaster train station.
If you come by car, there is plenty of car parking space in the area.
