Jon Gee. Harley St Psychotherapy. MUKCP. MBACP.
I am an experienced, down-to-earth Transpersonal/Integrative Psychotherapist based in Harley St, London. Member of both UKCP & BACP. I specialise in helping highly driven professionals who live extreme lifestyles, especially those in finance/law/media/arts and performing arts. I explore relationship issues, anxiety, stress, depression and burn out using mindfulness/body-awareness and trauma-informed Sensorimotor techniques.
I am passionate about the possibility for transformation and believe joining the dots between past and present can help heal the relationship between mind, body & heart.
I help clients identify and articulate their feelings. I offer practical tools to stabilise/improve mood, deepen self-knowledge, and create lasting change. My background is eclectic & includes stressful, fast-changing environments, entrepreneurial/management, and many years working in the world of therapy.
I have also previously run a small project at a charity, providing group therapy, mindfulness and yoga for those who experience psychosis. This mixed group brought together survivors of abuse, trauma, addiction, violence and prison time in a peaceful and supportive setting.
I offer sessions on Zoom, Skype, VSee and FaceTime.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked as a therapist in Central London since 2004 and have extensive experience of extreme lifestyles and stress reduction through mindfulness, yoga, and talking therapies.
My meditation practice began 15 years years ago. I have sat numerous 10 day silent meditation retreats worldwide and completed mindfulness-based stress reduction teacher training level 1 with Bangor University. I developed an interest in the usefulness of mindfulness for those experiencing psychosis whilst working with psychiatric patients in a SLAM/NHS Men's Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit.
I hold a postgraduate diploma in Transpersonal and Integrative Psychotherapy from CCPE and am currently undergoing further CPD training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
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.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
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.
