SPENCER ROWELL PhD Psychotherapist
Psychotherapy & Counselling in London N6

Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist


I work with people to find more of an understanding of their emotional life. Importantly how this might be relevant to connections with self and others as we find our own way in the world... That this exploration, of identity and sense of belonging, might ultimately enable us to live a more well-lived life...


The Work...
If it’s answers we seek, we first have to be asking the right questions. You after all are among the most important people you are likely to meet in your life – might you be intrigued enough in yourself?

I can offer counselling / psychotherapy in North London N6 / N8 area. A secure and confidential space where we might explore thoughts and feelings around specific issues such as trauma, stress, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, or perhaps symptoms less definable, such as low self-worth, lack of confidence, hopelessness, stuck, ambivalence or frustration.

Perhaps you have put difficult questions to the back of your mind unaddressed and ‘coped’ in other ways. Difficult feelings do however have a habit of returning, often unannounced. That even taking certain actions or advice has failed to bring purpose or meaning to aspects of your life.


Wether a general malaise or traumatic experience, psychotherapy may enable you to gain different perspectives of your way-in-the-world. There are many different ways to see and be seen, speak and be heard. By examining the important relationship we have with past experience, new ways of thinking may emerge.

Philosophy...
I describe myself as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist. Wether called counselling or psychotherapy, in this relationship an increased awareness of how our inner world might connect with outer experience and influence our relationships in the present. Our work would bring about change through intrigue into the possible cause of conflicts.
The why’s…

As much as speaking of present life experience, we might consider the journey you made to this place. In this space, a history of experience often difficult to verbalise, might be expressed. This psychodynamic way of working involves looking together at these past experiences. Psychoanalysis looks in more depth and considers the unconscious motivations or resistances to bring a new awareness and different way of seeing. To look at the root cause and untangle the no-longer-useful from our way-of-being.

What Next...
An initial consultation might help you make this important decision of whether psychotherapy might be useful and whether we might be suited to start that journey. Without any obligation, this initial consultation could help you consider wether self-enquiry to a deeper understanding of thoughts and feelings that inform our way-in-the-world. The potential of psychotherapy arousing an intrigue into the nature of your connection with self and others has to start somewhere.

We can discuss the frequency of sessions and cost at our initial meeting. I am qualified to work psychodynamically and am registered as a psychotherapist with the UK Council for Psychotherapy (CPJA) – I can offer a safe and confidential space, with time to explore and address any difficulties and challenges that you feel are obstructing you from living a well-lived life.
