About Stuart MacFarlane Psychotherapist

Originally from Sydney, Australia, he currently resides in London where he maintains his private practice. Over the years, he has helped hundreds of patients cope with and overcome a variety of psychological dilemmas. He has worked with adults and adolescents who have suffered from depression, bipolar disorder, drug and alcohol addiction as well as bereavement and anxiety.

Early Years
MacFarlane began his career during the early ’70s when he left Australia to become a student of Advaita Vedanta and philosophy in Rishikesh, India at Yoga-Vedanta Forest University. Once he completed school, he returned to Australia with the intent to implement his experiences from India in his own work with others. While working in private practice in 1984 as a bereavement counsellor and psychotherapist, MacFarlane began training with Elisabeth Kubler-Ross M.D. and became the head of her organization in Australia.

Following his work with Dr. Ross, MacFarlane was introduced to Jungian Analyst Gregg M. Furth who was globally recognized for his expert skill on the interpretation of drawings. MacFarlane began working with Furth by first organizing workshop tours around Australia and New Zealand, and then later assisting him in practice. This was also the time where MacFarlane became interested in the practice of Jungian Analytical Psychology and made a move to London for study at the Guild of Analytical Psychology (GAP).

Jungian Analysis
The Jungian analysis branch of analytical psychology was developed by Carl Jung, and in short, the theory is based on the idea that people can achieve wholeness by bringing harmony between the unconscious mind and the conscious mind. This is helped by a thorough analysis, where an individual works with their dreams; allowing the unconscious to inform conscious life, constantly adding new perspectives and insights.

Once MacFarlane graduated, he opened his own private practice in London as a psychotherapist and Jungian analyst. Additionally, MacFarlane also began facilitating numerous workshops and training sessions to psychotherapy students. Currently, MacFarlane continues to practice psychotherapy and holds various workshops throughout the year. To learn more about the psychotherapist Stuart MacFarlane, check this page often for updates!
