About me


jungian psychoanalyst (AJA), experienced integrative psychotherapist, clinical supervisor, and author.

I offer short term goal focused psychotherapy for specific issues, and longer term psychotherapy/analysis to work on deeper, more entrenched issues. Jungian psychoanalysis is an explorative process which might require more than one session a week, in which case the fee is generally lower.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been in private practice for over twenty years, and I also have over twelve years experience of working in hospitals (private and NHS), therapeutic communities, and homeless hostels.

I am a professional member (senior member/training analyst) of the Association of Jungian Analysts (AJA). I originally trained in integrative psychotherapy with the Minster Centre from 1990-96.

I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), and the British Psychoanalytic Council (BCP).
I am a member of the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP).
I hold a diploma in clinical supervision, and an MA in integrative psychotherapy from Middlesex University. I also hold an MA in Jungian and post Jungian studies from the University of Essex.

I am experienced in working with a broad spectrum of conditions and problems which are listed below. I work particularly with eating disorders; abuse whether that has its origin in childhood or an adult experience; childhood neglect; relationship issues including affairs and betrayal; family problems; and personal development at depth.

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.
