The Open Centre
188 Old Street
I offer individual sessions and work with people in weekly ongoing groups (on Wednesday and Thursdays, in the afternoon or evening). I also offer supervision for practitioners. There are occasional one or two day weekend personal development groups that feature Bioenergetics or Psychodrama and one day theme workshops on the following topics: Anger, All Angles; Facing Up To Shame; Shock and Stress; Body Image, Discovery and Change; Sexualities and Suppressions; The Rainbow of Desire (oppression); Life on Earth (ecotherapy). These are issues that I have a particular interest in and a great deal of experience of helping people with.
