Sally McLaren


I am a Jungian analytic psychotherapist in private practice in Horsham. My consulting room is in a quiet location on the edge of St. Leonards' Forest. People come to me from Brighton and the South Coast, Dorking and the Surrey Hills, as well as the surrounding towns and villages of East and West Sussex.

I have been working in private practice in Horsham for over twenty years. I also worked in an honorary capacity in NHS  secondary care in Brighton for several years with individuals struggling with more complex mental health issues.

I am registered with the BPC as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and I am currently undertaking a post qualification training for experienced psychotherapists with the Association of Jungian Analysts. I have a particular and longstanding interest in the work and ideas of Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist Carl Jung.

My paper 'Birds, Beasts and Babies - Notes from an Infant Observation' won the Roszika Parker prize in 2013 and was published in the British Journal of Psychotherapy in Novembe 2014. 

Please see my website for more information about me and my practice. (
