Dr Jurgen Schmidt
I offer individual counselling using Mindfulness-based Humanistic Integrative Therapy. My specialty is Core Process Psychotherapy, combining Western approaches to psychotherapy with the wisdom and awareness of Eastern philosophy, providing a contemplative and psycho-spiritual approach.
There are no issues that are not appropriate for therapy. I work with individual adults, with an interest in trauma, although all issues are of interest to me.
You may feel anxious, or depressed, you may be affected by psychosexual issues, by grief and bereavement, living with illness, especially HIV/AIDS, or caring for a loved one with a mental health problem. You may be going through problems coming from your multicultural background, having identity issues and trouble at reintegration.
Training, qualifications & experience
Coming from a German and Italian origin, I trained as a Medical Doctor (Dott. Med. - Bologna) and I hold a Master of Sciences Degree (LSHTM, London).
I have worked internationally running public health programmes and have settled down with the NHS some years ago.
I hold a MA degree from Middlesex University in Core Process Psychotherapy, established by the Karuna Institute.
I have worked as a counsellor for charities and work now privately. All clinical work carried out by me is subject to regular supervision by an UKCP-accredited clinical supervisor and
I am bound by my Institute’s Code of Ethics.
Languages available: English, German, Italian.
