Brigitte Madeleine BeignetPsychoanalytic psychotherapist
I am a qualified psychoanalytic psychotherapist, trained at The Guild of Psychotherapists, and UKCP accredited.
I have experience working with individuals with a range of difficulties, at the Guild of Psychotherapists, UCL Student Psychological Services, in private practice, and volunteering on a Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit in the NHS.
My special interests include anxiety, depression, trauma, eating disorders, abuse, relationship difficulties, and bereavement.
Prior to working as a Psychotherapist, I used to teach in a range of different educational settings, for example, as a University Teaching Associate for 7 years in the USA; I also taught Psychology courses as an Associate Lecturer for Birkbeck College and for The Open University for 10 years.
My approach is pluralistic with a relational Jungian base. I like to work with dreams, metaphors, and the therapeutic relationship but what is most important is that you feel free to use the therapy in your own way and at your own pace.
Taking the first steps towards change and growth is always the most difficult but psychotherapy can help support you on this unique journey. I provide a safe and warm non-judgmental space where your worries and anxieties will be heard and explored.
I can offer psychoanalytic psychotherapy in English as well as in French.
I currently have a private practice and am working with a pluralistically trained supervisor from the Guild of Psychotherapists. I am committed to continual personal and professional development and adhere to the Ethical code of conduct of the Guild of Psychotherapists and the UKCP.
In an initial consultation, we can explore what your difficulties may be and what you wish to gain from therapy and decide whether we can work together. Please, do not hesitate to contact me to arrange for a free 15-minute session over the phone and an initial consultation, or if you have any questions.
