Mark Vernon

PSYCHOTHERAPY

Many of the problems that trouble us in life are rooted in parts of our minds that are largely unconscious. Like an iceberg, we may be aware only of the difficulties that break the surface. That's why the bigger issues are hard to attend to.

Mark Vernon practices psychodynamic psychotherapy, the type of therapy that recognises this truth and provides a safe space to listen to such anxieties, stress, feeling low, or other personal struggles. The therapy is carefully focused on what the individual wants to bring, whilst also seeking different ways of listening to what those concerns could mean, particularly in terms of future flourishing.

Alongside psychotherapy, Mark has longstanding experience in pastoral and spiritual work. Often, psychotherapy can help unblock issues here too.

It can also be helpful to explore things at a systemic level, that is, thinking about how problems in life can arise from family histories, places of origin, and other transpersonal concerns.

Mark's private practice is based in two locations, one room near London Bridge, another near Camberwell Green. The therapy would be strictly confidential. It can be for a fixed term, perhaps of 12 weeks, or it can be open-ended. Many people prefer the latter because it allows time for deeper issues to emerge. It is important to keep to a pattern of sessions, meeting at the same time and place each week. The price is typically £60.00 per session, depending on means.

He trained at WPF Therapy, a leading clinic and institute in London. He also works at the Maudsley hospital in south London. His professional clinical affliations are with The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) and The Foundation For Psychotherapy and Counselling (FPC).
