|The organisation was founded in 1986 by a group of
therapists trained in primal therapy by Dr. Arthur Janov at the 'l'Institut
Primal Europeen' in Paris. The organisation's work is based on the theories
of Arthur Janov, Alice Miller and John Bowlby, who illustrate very powerfully
the importance of good attachments and who show how children can be traumatised
both in families and in institutions, such as schools and hospitals. The
suffering caused by lack of love, care, touch or attention, or by physical
or sexual abuse, can rarely be communicated or expressed by the child. Without
anyone to recognise their pain, a child will all too often blame him or
herself. The consequences of this can be far reaching, ranging from mild
discontent, anxiety, depression, problems in relationships through to crippling
disability and unhappiness. In our experience, painful childhood traumas
and disturbed family relationships must be worked through with one consistent
therapist. Within the therapeutic relationship, the consequences of early
painful relationships and experiences can emerge. It is our aim to provide
an environment in which emotions can be recognised, felt and worked through.
The London Association is a member of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy.
We offer individual, couple and group psychotherapy. This is a nationally
recognised body which monitors the standards of psychotherapy and psychotherapy
trainings in the United Kingdom.
We offer supervision to other professionals who are interested in our method of working. This can be done either face to face or via the telephone.
Clients coming from abroad and who stay in London are advised to register with a medical doctor. We also have a doctor who is available for private consultations.
LAPP is an equal opportunites organisation, actively committed to issues of equal opportunities, diversity and issues of intercultural practice.
