Kylie Morse

Jungian Psychotherapy

 

Training with the Australian and New Zealand Society of Jungian Analysts.

 

Areas of Special Interest

  • Anxiety and depression.
  • Trauma including difficult early family relationships.
  • Adjustment to illness, life stage or parenthood.
  • Often the crisis of these can point towards exploring deeper connections within oneself.

 

Counselling/Therapy Services

I am particularly interested in seeing people who want help with looking for personal meanings behind distress or repeating patterns in their lives. I’m also happy to see people who just want to get things off their chest, the reflection back of which can cause a shift in understanding and tolerance of oneself and one’s emotions.

Psychotherapy involves regular sessions of 50 minutes in length. The duration and frequency depends on the nature of your problem and individual needs. I offer short, medium and long term work.

I am interested in longer term depth work and twice weekly sessions if appropriate.

 

Counselling/Therapy Approach

The most intense conflicts, if overcome, leave behind a sense of security and calm that is not easily disturbed.
– C.G. Jung

 

A Jungian approach is particularly suited to exploration of dreams, art, metaphor and the therapeutic relationship to broaden an understanding of oneself. It is Psychodynamic.

Below I have a link to Jonathan Shedler’s 2010 Psychodynamic Psychotherapy journal article outlining what it is and effectiveness (across multiple meta-analysis), which indicate it is highly effective and this effect increases with time, including long term post treatment, read Shedler’s article

 

Background and Experience

My background and initial training is as a General Practitioner, which I chose from an interest in the diversity of being human and a respect for people’s autonomy and agency. Also of relevance I worked as a junior doctor for 2 years at the London Lighthouse, an HIV hospice in the mid 1990s, and on acute Psychiatric wards in Australia and the UK.

Although I enjoy GP work, I have found myself wanting to spend more time with each client, being with their agenda. Which, alongside a lifelong interest in art, myth, literature and soul, has led naturally to a Jungian approach and training.

Other study includes: Visual Arts 1, Physics 1, Celtic Art and Archaeology, The Culture of Disillusionment in Literature and Society (social history and literature), and block printing.
