Jan May - Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist UKCP reg.
Sometimes we all need support and speaking to a trained professional within a non-judgmental and confidential setting can help. If you've come this far, you may be considering psychotherapy but wondering where to begin - it can be challenging to find the right person. To help, here is a summary what I can offer you.
I welcome those who want to work through a specific problem as well as those who seek longer-term therapy. You'll have the opportunity to discuss which option is best for you when you come for your initial consultation.
I have over 15 years’ experience of working with individuals and families on a professional basis, both in the voluntary, public and private sector. I am experienced working in NHS clinical settings as well as in private practice.
I am interested in working with people from different ethnic and cultural heritages.
Initially, I offer a first meeting which provides a space for you to talk about what brings you to consider psychotherapy and, for you to ask any questions you might have about how I work.
Psychotherapy provides the opportunity to find fresh perspective by seeking to understand the underlying dynamics that underpin problems, including but not exclusively: depression, anxiety, life changes, crisis, grief and loss, lack of meaning in life, shame, work and relationship issues. Ultimately, psychotherapy provides a space where transformation can occur.
I offer short and long-term therapy based in Archway, N19 and in London Bridge, SE1. Both have excellent transport links.
Please get in touch if you have any questions. I would be happy to have a preliminary conversation with you then take it from there.
