PHIL JOSLIN

Co Founder, Jungian Analyst and Psychotherapist

Member of Society of Analytical Psychology (SAP), International Association for Analytical Psychology (IAAP) and the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) 

Phil has almost 35 years of experience in private practice and managing teams in statutory services. 

A former seminarian, Philip has spent all his life in contemplation. At the same time he is very much a man of the world. If you tried to pin him down as anything other than a compassionate human being who is able to help the people who come to him for Jungian analysis to live with their own complexity and all the inner and external slings and arrows of outrageous fortune which beset them, you would be on a hiding to nothing. As a clinician he is able both to empathise and to challenge in helping troubled and lost to find themselves.

JANINE FULLER

Transpersonal Integrative Psychotherapist, Psychosexual Therapist, and Relationship Counsellor

Registered Member of UKCP and College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists (COSRT).

Janine helps clients explore a wide range of issues and life circumstances, including relationship and sexual difficulties, anxiety, addiction, stress, difficulties managing overwhelming thoughts and feelings, overeating, loss, and self-esteem issues. Some clients specifically choose to come to therapy to enrich their lives: perhaps by developing purpose or deepening their spiritual understanding.

Most of our work together will involve talking therapy, although some clients find it helpful to work creatively with drawings, imagery, dreams, bodywork, sand trays or visualisation. Regardless of your preference, our work will help you to understand what is preventing you from leading a vibrant and resilient life.

TANYA GARRITY

Integrative Psychotherapist FDSC

Tanya is a sensitive, kind and creative psychotherapist who believes the relationship is an essential aspect of therapy. Tanya creates a sense of calm and stability promoting self-awareness, acceptance, vulnerability and healing.

Tanya is experienced working with trauma however that may manifest itself (ie. addictions, eating disorders, self-harm, depression, anxiety, shame...) and recognises it is not uncommon for people’s lives to unravel in a variety of painful ways and unhelpful coping strategies that can negatively impact daily life. Tanya works with curiosity and patience with individuals, families and young people, at their pace, to strengthen the relationship with themselves.

Tanya can work creatively with clients who may feel safer working with images and or play rather than talking more directly about their feelings to gain insight.

Tanya trained at The University of Greenwich in Integrative Counselling and has worked at Lifeworks a residential treatment facility for emotional and psychological disorders, at The Place 2 Be in London as a play therapist and as part of Surrey's Early Help team holistically supporting families with complex and multiple needs.

Laura Kypre at the Surrey Centre

LAURA KYPRE

Psychodynamic Psychotherapist

Member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)

“Every time you don’t follow your inner guidance, you feel a loss of energy, loss of power, a sense of spiritual deadness”, Shakti Gawain.

Laura believes that to truly enjoy life we have to set ourselves free, from messages received in our pasts that no longer serve us and that actually, may, deaden us. The first steps of change are awareness, which can sometimes look like a break down, burnout, stress, fatigue, a message from the body to say change is required or a spiritual awakening that something is wrong, you are not on the right path perhaps.

If you are struggling with eating, anxiety, intrusive thoughts, low self-esteem, difficulty in relationships or a sense that something isn’t quite right then Laura will work with you in a collaborative style, guiding you through difficult times, towards feeling alive and rested.

Laura trained at The University of Greenwich in a psychodynamic modality, is a member with the BACP and previously worked at The Priory. Laura often works long term building a trusting and safe therapeutic relationship to get to the root cause of your issue.
