Hessel Willemsen

Hessel Willemsen is a Jungian psychoanalyst who received a Master of Science degree from Delft University of Technology and a Master of Arts degree in Clinical and Health Psychology from Leiden University. He went on to train with the Society of Analytical Psychology (SAP, London) where he now is a training analyst. Hessel practices psychoanalysis and psychotherapy in London, UK, and also works as a clinical psychologist with children who may not live with their parents, and children who are subjected to emotional abuse in contact dispute cases. The significant levels of deprivation he encountered has made him conscious of a need to understand the bodily experience of affect and how, in turn, deprived states of mind cause unbearable shame and limited ability to live life more fully. He is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Analytical Psychology.
