Samantha Lindup PGDip MBACP
I am a qualified and experienced Psychotherapeutic Psychotherapist, recognised by the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
My practice is based in Highgate, London (N6) and Whetstone/Totteridge (EN5).
I offer affordable and confidential individual counselling in a comfortable and professional environment. I work with clients both long-term and short-term, meeting once or twice weekly. I also offer online/Skype sessions.
Within the confidential and peaceful therapeutic frame you will be able to talk about what it is that troubles you, and together I can help you work towards a sense of deepening understanding and healing. .
Some of the issues I work with include anxiety, depression, relationship and family issues, trauma & PTSD, addiction, codependency, self-harm, and childhood abuse. I also work with couples.
My training was with The Institute of Psychosynthesis, London as a Psychotherapeutic Counsellor. I have also attended subsequent trainings with The Society of Analytical Psychology, London. I am a Member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP).
Psychosynthesis is a psychology of hope, with its eye not only on history, but also on a purposeful future giving individuals the capacity to reorient their lives in the direction of meaning and values. Psychosynthesis therapy helps you to gain a deeper understanding of your past and present, and helps you to know yourself more as you learn to trust your own feelings and thoughts. The therapy works at the level of both the personality and the soul, enabling you to find ways to work creatively with wounds and dysfunctions that have arisen during your life.

About Analytical Psychology
This is the term that Jung gave to his particular form of psychotherapy. Fundamental to Jung’s view of the psyche was that the mind and the unconscious could largely be trusted, and that it was all the time attempting to assist the individual; in this way he saw the psyche as self-regulating. Jung thought that even problematic symptoms, such as anxiety or depression, could be potentially helpful in drawing the individual’s attention to an imbalance in the psyche, for eg. if someone becomes depressed perhaps the way they are living their life means that they are not following a path that is natural and true to their particular personality. He understood this as being due to the purposive nature of the psyche. Jung also thought that the way that we see ourselves (our ego) is limited and that modern man has become cut off from his true, instinctual nature. He thought that we need to listen to ourselves and to come to discover who we really are and what we really feel. He came to believe that we need to be guided by what he called the self, which is an unconscious sense of the personality as a whole.
