Therapy: with Juan

… where the simple, but sometimes rare, experience of being attentively listened to can have meaningful and transformative effects.

Hello, I am Juan and welcome to my website.

I am a qualified counsellor and psychotherapist with a private practice in London: in-person (NW2/NW6) and online (zoom).

You might be visiting this page because you are interested in therapy for yourself or someone you care for. By scrolling down, you can read more about therapy, my approach and experience, as well as my fees.

If you would like to make an inquiry, you are welcome to use my contact details below.

Can therapy help me?

You might be new to therapy with no prior experience. Or, you may have done sessions with a therapist in the past and wish to reengage. You might be a student undertaking a counselling or psychotherapy training and require a BACP/UKCP registered therapist. Whoever you are and whatever your circumstances, sharing and acknowledging your thoughts and feelings in therapy might be helpful for you.

Individual Therapy

Therapy is a once, sometimes twice, weekly day and time dedicated to you. You may have specific issues to focus on. Or, you might want to explore yourself in a wider sense. As therapy is a place where you can start to be more seen and heard (and less hidden), it can be both daunting and liberating. By staying with whatever emerges, change can occur. Insight gained in sessions can lead to positive changes in your life.

Will I be welcome?

You are welcome in your individuality. This includes your individual: gender, sexuality, sexual preferences, race, ethnicity, cultural heritage, social class, religion, spirituality, physical or mental health diagnosis and any disability. Therapy can be understood as a process of discovering your uniqueness, towards a more secure and holistic sense of yourself. You are welcome to come as you are.

Approach

I am a warm, empathic and open-minded therapist. My integrative training means I consider more than one approach to inform therapeutic thinking. I find Psychodynamic, Jungian and Transpersonal psychology helpful. Holistically, I will invite attention to your thoughts and feelings; to your experience and awareness of your body and to any intuitions that might arise. I will take an honest, dignified and respectful attitude towards you.

About

I have completed a Diploma in Counselling and an Advanced Diploma in Psychotherapy, at Re-vision: Centre for Integrative Transpersonal Counselling and Psychotherapy. As a result, I am a registered member of the BACP and UKCP and adhere to their Ethical Frameworks and professional standards. In addition, I am completing a Jungian Analysis Training for Qualified Psychotherapists and I currently offer low cost thrice weekly analysis.

Experience

My academic experience includes undergraduate, masters and post-graduate level education. Therapeutically, I have worked with teens, young people and people in mid/later life phases, in various organisational settings including ELOP, Re-vision’s Low Cost Counselling Service, Bridge: A Future in Focus and Child in Time. Currently, I work in private practice and I am a tutor on Re-vision’s Stage One Counselling Diploma.

‘An approach to the Self can take place at any age: a 16 year-old may be quite far along the path of individuation, while a 60-year-old may have completely abandoned the search. Through our lives we draw nearer to the center of our being, only to fall back from it again. This is a constant process, a cyclical approach and withdrawal.’
