Dr Jana Fusekova, Clinical Psychologist & Psychodynamic Psychotherapist
I am a psychoanalytically-minded clinical psychologist and a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist and I offer exploratory psychotherapy.
The aim of this type of psychotherapy is to deepen one's emotional capacities as a person so that challenges inherent in living with others and with oneself become not only manageable but a source of richer and more nuanced emotional experience in life.
Psychoanalytic psychotherapy works by helping to develop deeper understanding of one's mind and exploring its less conscious aspects which nevertheless impact on our feelings, thoughts and behaviour.
This happens in the context of the relationship between the patient and the therapist and the emotional experience of this encounter. The consultation is an opportunity for the patient to see whether this resonates with them in some way.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am accredited as a psychodynamic psychotherapist by the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and am a member of the Tavistock Society of Psychotherapists (TSP). I am also a clinical psychologist and am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Areas of counselling I deal with
Other areas of counselling I deal with
Psychotherapy helps to explore a range of symptoms. Less attention is paid to the actual symptoms; psychoanalytic practitioners believe that manifest symptoms and psychological difficulties that a person experiences are frequently driven by internal conflicts and anxieties which are out of our awareness and unconscious, and which need to be understood before a person can get a better handle on them.
