Professor of Analytical Psychology

Training Analyst Society of Analytical Psychology

Honorary Fellow, United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy

Andrew Samuels is known internationally as an influential commentator on political and social themes from the standpoint of 'therapy thinking'. He has worked with politicians, political organizations, activist groups and members of the public in Europe, US, Brazil, Israel, Japan, Russia and South Africa as a political and organizational consultant. Clinically, Andrew has evolved a unique blend of Jungian and post-Jungian, relational psychoanalytic, and humanistic approaches.


Andrew Samuels began his career running a commune-style radical theatre company in the late 1960s and early 1970s, directing plays in and around Oxford. At the age of 22 he declined an offer to become the Assistant Director at the Royal Shakespeare Company and instead went on to develop a drama and youth counselling project in South Wales, working with deprived children. He then gained a Diploma in Social Administration at the London School of Economics, subsequently qualified as a Psychiatric Social Worker and went on to train at the Society of Analytical Psychology (founded in 1946 in London to develop the ideas of Carl Jung, and a member institution of the BPC), where he is a Training Analyst.

He co-founded Psychotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility which was formed in 1995 as an independent organisation that emerged from the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. It was originally founded by a group of therapists and analysts from disparate theoretical backgrounds (psychoanalytical, Jungian and humanistic) who wished to use the insights gained in the consulting room and elsewhere by taking them into the outside world to influence political and public discourse. Considering the sometimes enormous interdisciplinary divides, it was a brave and innovative endeavour that sought to bridge these divisions. The organisation deliberately included psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and counsellors under one roof, something never previously attempted.

He co-founded “Antidote”: a psychotherapy-based think tank which, supported by a number of New Labour luminaries, launched its Manifesto for an “Emotionally Literate Society” at the Houses of Parliament. He is also a founding member of the International Association for Jungian Studies: a learned society formed in 2002 for Jungian scholars and clinicians.

Andrew Samuels and Renos Papadopoulos (with whom Samuels jointly holds the chair) were the first Professors of Analytical Psychology in the world. They are the co-founders of the "Masters in Jungian and Post-Jungian Studies" at the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies[1] at the University of Essex, UK, a unique degree scheme. The ethos of the course is to take an informative, critical and reflective stance in relation to the core concepts of analytical psychology as developed by Carl Jung, post-Jungians of all schools and scholars in academic disciplines. This is balanced with an emphasis on clinical theory as well as on applications of analytical psychology in areas such as cultural and gender studies, social and political theory, philosophy and religion.

In 2006, he was elected one of the first group of six Honorary Fellows of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. He is Professor of Analytical Psychology at Essex, Visiting Professor of Psychoanalytic Studies at Goldsmiths, Honorary Professor of Psychology and Therapeutic Studies at Roehampton, and Visiting Adjunct Professor in the Postdoctoral Program in Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy at New York University.
