About Me

I am a Jungian analyst-in-training, originally from Ireland and now based in Berlin, Germany.
I have an MA Classics (Ancient Greek and Latin) and M.Phil. Linguistics from Trinity College Dublin and I spent most of my 20s and 30s working in teaching, research, and academic publishing. In my mid-20s, I became interested in psychology and spirituality and I studied various wisdom traditions and ways of thinking while working and living abroad in Europe, the US, and Asia. From 2013, I studied astrology at the Faculty of Astrological Studies, London, and this gave me a good understanding of the cumulative psychological knowledge of the ancients, the breadth and depth of which, in my view, far surpasses modern attempts to label personality types. I am interested in consciousness studies, particularly integral thinkers like Jean Gebser and Ken Wilber, but my hunger for depth brought me, in 2016, to commence training as a Jungian psychoanalyst on the IAAP-recognised Analyst International programme at the C.G. Jung Institute, Zürich. The aspects of this training that touch me most are creative - dance, sandplay, painting from the unconscious - those things that bring us in touch with the numinous. In 2019, I completed a clinical internship in art therapy at the Wiegmann Clinic for Psychosomatic Medicine and Psychotherapy in Westend, Berlin, working with individuals and groups with a wide range of symptomologies. I now work as an analyst in private practice in Berlin under supervision of the C.G. Jung Institute, Zürich.
