Stan Roman UKCP reg
I am a psychotherapist and offer a personal and a safe psychoanalytic practice. My experience is grounded on my accrued learning from patients and clients over the years in clinical practice. This has taught me how to genuinely listen with both head and heart; to provide a humane and creative space for free thinking; a particular kind of space where one can draw intuitively from lived experience to make sense and see new possibilities.
I welcome enquiries for in-depth psychotherapy and psychoanalysis and will take into account individual personal requirements and cultural diversity. Choosing the right psychotherapist may be the most important decision for anyone seeking this kind of help. And, this is why I like to allow those who come to see me, plenty time for assessment. The decision to embark on a journey such as psychoanalytic psychotherapy, which is after all about deep self-enquiry, has to be a mutually felt and thought about decision.
My consultations are between 8.am-6pm, Monday to Thursday. My practice is located in Kings Worthy and has easy access in and out of Winchester by road and public transport. Parking available. I have close working links with other professional and specialist colleagues.
Training, qualifications & experience
I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. Trained at the Guild of Psychotherapists, I am registered with the College of Psychotherapists and Jungian Analysts [ CPJA ]. I subscribe to the UKCP's Code of Ethical Practice. I am a trained and registered Psychoanalytic psychotherapy supervisor .
My psychoanalytic approach is inter-subjective and interpersonal. I work with the generative potential of the unconscious, free-association and the dynamics of the relationship.
I have considerable clinical experience, the result of working in private and the public sectors. My professional development is grounded on extensive work with severe psychopathology and difficult issues of disconnectedness, bereavement, anxious depression, perinatal illness and loss of creativity and trauma.
As a psychoanalytic psychotherapist I do not in any way prescribe or in any way assume to tell others how to run their lives. As much as my psychoanalytic work invariably involves the use of narratives and personalised metaphors, I try always to look beyond the limits of the language of symptoms and to try and find the person before me.

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy is a mutual enterprise in which two individuals, embark in earnest, on a journey of self-enquiry. In this enterprise, psychotherapist and patient explore together the recurring unconscious ways of relating to oneself and others; to understand the reasons why and turn things around.
