I am a Jungian Analyst also known as an Analytical Psychologist. The only one in Jersey.
I specialise in couple therapy. My analytical training informs this work. Couples have said such things as "you really get us". What they mean is I help them to really understand themselves.
I also specialise in individual time-limited therapy of up to 12 appointments (sometimes fewer sessions are all that are required).
Sometimes open-ended psychodynamic therapy is more suitable, This can last many weeks because it is in greater depth than most counselling generally available.
My other specialisation is analysis, which can last longer and is usually held over 2 or more sessions each week. Higher frequency facilitates access to inner depths, both the shadow side of human nature and sources of healing.
I supervise psychotherapists, counsellors and psychologists.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have been in private practice since 1996. For many years, my practice included counselling men and women in the finance industry, who were referred by national employee assistance programme providers.
My initial training in 1986 was with Marriage Care, a national counselling service for couples, where I qualified not only as a counsellor, but also as a supervisor and tutor.
I have a post graduate diploma in psychodynamic counselling through the University of Surrey, and a masters level advanced diploma in psychodynamic psychotherapy through WPF Kensington.
Jungian analytic training is much more intense than counselling or psychotherapy training. It requires trainees to have their own analysis with a minimum of 3 times a week sessions both before and throughout the training. The training at the Association of Jungian Analysts, where I qualified, typically takes about 4 years. It is a requirement that candidates are already qualified psychotherapists before embarking on the training.
I regularly participate in ongoing professional development to ensure my practice offers the best informed care.
My accrediting membership includes:-
International Association for Analytical Psychology, Zurich (IAAP)
Association of Jungian Analysts, London (AJA)
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

The Accredited Register Scheme was set up in 2013 by the Department of Health (DoH) as a way to recognise organisations that hold voluntary registers which meet certain standards. These standards are set by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).

"When an inner situation is not made conscious it happens outside, as fate..."
C. G. .Jung.
Talking with a professional analytical psychologist/psychoanalyst can help you gain more awareness and understanding of deeply rooted difficulties within yourself and difficulties in your relationships. No other type of therapist can help you do this at such depth. It can lead to ever deepening new perspectives of your situation and a continually increasing sense of personal choice. It can result in a feeling of well-being, to which you can return, in the future, when/if this is momentarily lost. It can also result in a richer connection to yourself, others and the world at large.
"Who looks outside dreams - who looks inside awakes". C. G. Jung.
I work during office hours and also evenings. I frequently work on Saturday mornings for initial consultations and couple work.
During the Covid -19 pandemic all sessions are on video link via Skype, Zoom. I also use Whatsapp.
All sessions take place in a quiet, comfortable setting in St Mary and are completely confidential (in accordance with the ethical principals of the BACP). At our initial meeting you will be able to tell me what brings you and ask me anything you wish to know about counselling/psychotherapy to inform your choice as to whether or not to continue.
If we decide to continue, we shall arrange further sessions which take place at the same time and day each week. Normally they are once a week. The regularity of appointments is necessary as it helps when working with unconscious dynamics and provides a sense of continuity and containment. We shall discuss whether short-term or open-ended therapy is most helpful to you.
The above information applies to couples also, except for length of therapy. The model I choose to work with is 6 sessions then review, followed by another 6 sessions and a review, and so on if necessary. Sometimes less than 6 sessions are required.
