Biography

BI0: Gibbs A. Williams Ph.D.


Gibbs A. Williams Ph.D. is a psychoanalyst, supervisor, and instructor in private practice in New York City for the past forty years. He received a B.A. from Columbia College majoring in philosophy; an M.A. from Yeshiva University; and a Ph.D. from New York University. His choice of profession is an outgrowth of four major interests: philosophy, depth psychology, spirituality, and the esoteric occult. He was an assistant director at Odyssey House — a therapeutic community for the treatment of heroin addicts. He is a faculty member of the Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy Study Center.

He has been researching synchronicities (meaningful coincidences) for over forty years, and has lectured and taught widely on this subject including private lectures, and giving workshops at the Discovery Center. He presented a published paper called: The Demystification and Use of Meaningful Coincidences at The First International Paranormal Convention at Colorado State University, 1987.

His work is soon to be released in a book called: DEMYSTIFYING MEANINGFUL COINCIDENCES: (SYNCHRONICITIES): The Evolving Self, The Personal Unconscious, and The Creative Process.

His web site gibbsonline.com presents his work in detail along with a book list, and links to synchronicities and other subjects. He is referred to by many related web sites and is quoted in S.P.A.C.E. com. His mental health site explores the nature of significant psychological change: what it is, how it comes to be, and what interferes with attaining and sustaining it.

In his role as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist his aim is to understand the unique psychological ‘fingerprint’ of each patient in breadth and depth. Thus each therapy experience is tailored made to meet the needs of each individual.

Each therapy is guided by the following organizing questions: Who am I? and What do I really want?

His essential method is providing an attuned, trusting relationship in which he continually searches for the just right concepts to aid a given patient to identify, explore, and work through their seemingly intractable psychological problems.
