Penny Brownjohn MA MBACP (accred)
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.
