About me

I am particularly interested in helping people explore what emerges that is important to them. My practice is influenced by humanistic/existential, psychoanalytic and continental philosophy/postmodern thinking. I work seeing both long and short-term clients in London (Wimbledon) and Brighton. In addition I have facilitated for many years several experiential groups a week.  I also have over 30 years experience of providing individual and group supervision.

Whilst I primarily work at the University of Roehampton having led the development of training programmes in psychotherapy, counselling and counselling psychology, and direct the Research Centre for Therapeutic Education, I continue to maintain a small private practice.

Originally I trained as a Humanistic Counsellor at South West London College and later as an Existential-analytic Psychotherapist (UKCP and UPCA registered) with the Philadelphia Association. I am also a Chartered Counselling Psychologist (and HCPC registered). I have also been influenced by my training at the Henderson Hospital, the Tavistock Clinic and the Human Potential Project (University of Surrey/ Quasitor).

Whilst I have worked in various capacities with the National Health Service, I do not agree with the vocabulary of a medical model being used for psychotherapy and counselling in terms for example of diagnosis, treatment and medical conditions but instead prefers to explore what emerges through ordinary language. I am particularly interested in critical psychotherapy and counselling, and am Founding Chair of the Society for Critical Psychotherapy, Founding Chair of the Southern Association of Psychotherapy and Counselling, and on the faculty of the Philadelphia Association.
