Psychotherapy, Jungian Analysis and EMDR in East London


Gail Bennett

Gail is a Jungian Analyst and psychotherapist. She is accredited by the UKCP and a member of the Guild of Analytical Psychologists (GAP) and the International Association of Analytical Psychologists (IAAP).

Gail originally trained as a mental health nurse and worked in acute, forensic and community mental health settings for 14 years. During her time working for the NHS she was trained in CBT and began to develop her skills as a psychotherapist. In 2006 she moved into education to work part time as a Senior Lecturer in Mental Health contributing to nursing and social work trainings whilst building a private practice as a therapist and clinical supervisor.

Since 2000 Gail spent extensive time in India, Sri Lanka and Nepal studying Yoga and Vipassana meditation. In 2010 Gail graduated from the first intake of the master’s programme in Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) led by Professor Mark Williams, following a desire to bridge between both Eastern and Western psychological approaches.


In 2011 Gail returned to the NHS IAPT service to work as a clinical supervisor and specialist therapist. As the model of therapy service delivery changed, she decided to return to private practice whilst also working as a lecturer at Birkbeck on the Foundation Degree in Brief Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and CBT.

In 2015 Gail commenced training in Jungian Analysis completing the theoretical component in 2019 and the clinical training in 2023. She is a trustee of the C G Jung Club and co-ordinates the Faye Pye Grass Roots lecture series. Gail is also a co-ordinator for the GAP Certificate Seminar Programme and contributes to teaching combining this with her private practice.
