I am currently in the final stages of a post qualification training in Jungian analysis for experienced psychotherapists with the Association of Jungian Analysts (AJA) in London. AJA integrate classical, archetypal and developmental approaches to Jungian analysis whilst also recognising the spiritual dimension in human beings. Successful completion of this programme leads to membership of AJA and the International Association of Analytical Psychologists (IAAP).
I completed a two year Infant Observation Course with the Jungian section (BJAA) of the British Psychotherapy Foundation (BPF) in 2012. I observed a baby in his home each week from birth to two years in order to build up a picture of his developing inner world and relationships. My paper, ‘Birds, Beasts and Babies – Notes from an Infant Observation’, was awarded the Rozsika Parker prize 2013 by the British Journal of Psychotherapy and was published in the Journal in November 2014. I am interested in the role of imaginal processes in those very early experiences before language is available, and the implications of this for later life and in the consulting room. I am also interested in the process and methodology of Infant Observation.
