About me

Hello. I'm Penelope Brownjohn (Penny) I am an accredited Jungian Psychotherapist. I work within the ethos of the BACP. I'm interested in the individual finding a more congruent relationship within the context of presenting difficulties...to clarify for themselves confusing dynamics through a therapeutic relationship. My clients find a comfortable pace, for some it will be a brief intervention and others stay long term. I prefer the therapeutic encounter which follows Jung, we are in this together rather than the 'doctor patient' relationship of the Freudian encounter. Relational Dynamics, Transference/Countertransference and Dream analysis are all on offer. I have studied all the major Psychoanalysts as well as attachment theory and Transactional Analysis.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have a Masters Degree from the Society of Psychology and healing SOPH. Validated by Middlesex University. I taught on the course for ten years, teaching the theory of analytical thinking. I work with dynamics of transference, countertransference, and the unconscious dynamics of dreams.

I have been working for 20years. 10 years with two NHS practices in Central London dealing with all kinds of clinical assessment, schizophrenia, narcolepsy, anorexia and bulimia as well as survivors of torture. I have worked with all kinds of depression including post trauma, panic attacks, bereavement, divorce. I also have attended courses in Boarding School Survival and attachment problems. I now work from home.

Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

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.

BACP

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.

Key details

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
