Jeremy Young MA, Psychosynthesis Psychotherapist (UKCP Accred)
Hi, my name is Jeremy and I’m a UKCP registered psychosynthesis psychotherapist.
As a psychosynthesis psychotherapist, I offer a space where you can explore aspects of yourself that may feel out of alignment with a deeper sense of who you are and how you imagine you would like to be within the world.
You may be suffering distress of current times, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem. Within this space we can explore these symptoms at depth, but within psychosynthesis these symptoms alert us to something deeper: an inner conflict and the emergence of our authentic sense of self that wishes to be expressed and come to the forefront.
My approach allows for the body, feelings, mind and spirit to be included, meaning the whole being is considered. Each person I work with is an individual and their experience and dilemmas are valued as such.
You may have a feeling of a loss of direction or purpose; my approach also allows for self-discovery. It provides a doorway to a truer sense of who we are, where values, meaning and purpose may be explored. I encourage clients to develop a sense of curiosity to understand themselves to a profounder level. By doing so, this allows a greater connection with oneself and supports more meaningful relationships with others.
In response to COVID-19, I am currently seeing clients via online sessions.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained at the Institute of Psychosynthesis in London (accredited by UKCP) and have a Masters in Psychosynthesis Psychotherapy awarded by Middlesex University. I am experienced in providing individual therapy and facilitating group therapy.
I have experience working with a wide range of concerns and issues including childhood trauma, addiction, depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and other complex issues.
I have worked as a therapist and group facilitator within both the mental health ward and addiction treatment program at Priory Hospital North London and within the addiction treatment program at Priory Hospital Roehampton. More recently I was a part of the therapeutic team setting up Priory's new residential secondary addiction care service in Mill Hill London. As a part of my private practice, I now work with people who are in recovery from addiction.
I have experience of working with a wide demographic and cultural backgrounds.
Before becoming a psychotherapist, I worked within the medical device and pharmaceutical industry and have a Masters in Analytical Chemistry and a Bachelors in Biology.
I am committed to ongoing personal and professional development. I adhere to the UK Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP) Code of Ethics and Professional Practice and receive regular clinical supervision.
