"The reason why consciousness exists, and why there is an urge to widen it and deepen it, is very simple... things go less well without it." (C.G.Jung)

I have daytime and evening availability, and can help with general life guidance from a depth psychology perspective, as well as with many troublesome issues like anxiety and panic, depression, fear and phobias, eating disorders, compulsions and addictions, low self-esteem and guilt. Other problematic things that I can help with, include relationship and family issues, sexual and spiritual matters, life crisis and "existential angst" (to do with meaninglessness and purposelessness), as well as clinically diagnosed, or as yet undiagnosed conditions, described as schizophrenia, bi-polar disorder, personality disorder or dissociation.

My trainings have been transpersonal, which comes under the umbrella of humanistic psychology, and my approach would be described as transpersonal (beyond the personal) and Jungian (looking at dreams and symptoms and their possible meaning), which embraces the cognitive and behavioural models of psychology, too. I specialise in dream exploration and their relationship to helpful mythological themes in our lives, and am also trained in and work with, where appropriate, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and shamanic journeying.

I am a member of both the CCPE and the BACP.

What people have said about the benefits of therapy:
"I was at a real crossroads in my life, and Asher's friendly approach - especially looking at the wisdom of my own helpful dreams- did more than anything to get me onto the right path in so many ways." (Mike, aged 40)

"I sorted out a lot of stuff from the past with Asher, and sometimes it was tough going... but it was always kind of fun too. I feel I can get on with my life properly now." (Ally, aged 28)

"Tremendously helpful... we both feel we have turned the corner in our marriage, which was really on the rocks." (K&T, Notting Hill)

I have a practice at Violet Hill Studios, central London, a small, peaceful healing centre in a quiet part of St Johns Wood. It's not far from Swiss Cottage and Finchley Road, further north. It is 5 minutes from Maida Vale tube (Bakerloo line), and 10 from St Johns Wood (Jubilee line). Paddington main line station is also not far. This practice serves those looking for counselling & psychotherapy in central, west and north west London, and the west end.

I also have a practice in Putney, south- west London, at my home, which is 5 minutes from East Putney tube (District line), and 10 from Putney overland station (itself only 15 minutes from Waterloo). Putney is handy if you're looking for counselling & psychotherapy near Wandsworth, Chelsea, Fulham, Wimbledon, Hammersmith, Barnes, Roehampton, Richmond and Surrey.

Parking in both locations is pay & display or metered.
