Dorothée Bonnigal-Katz MA, UKCP, CP-UK, CPJA
I offer ongoing psychoanalytic therapy in either English or French and welcome individuals and couples. I also offer clinical supervision. In my practice, I rely on a very dialogic approach which seeks to suit and appreciate each individual in his or her specificity and uniqueness. Because of my own bilingual and multicultural background, I am especially interested in cultural diversity and have extensive experience working with clients from more marginalised backgrounds (whether in terms of nationality, sexual orientation, ethnicity, religion, or socio-economic status).
Training, qualifications & experience
I am originally from Paris, France, where I began my training as a psychoanalyst and was actively involved in psychoanalytic circles (Espace Analytique, Association Psychanalytique de France). After moving to the UK a few years ago, I joined the Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis where I completed my psychoanalytic training.
I have worked in a variety of institutional settings including the NHS and Islington MIND. I am the founder and clinical lead of the Psychosis Therapy Project, a specialist therapy service for people experiencing psychosis in the community.
I am a member of the UKCP, of the Council for Psychoanalysis and Jungian Analysis College (CPJA) and of the College of Psychoanalysts UK (CP-UK). I am also a leading translator in the field of psychoanalysis.
Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
UK Council for Psychotherapy
The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.
As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.
UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
