About me

My aim is to help people be clearer as to what is troubling them so they (and others) can live more fulfilling lives. 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 am now an Emeritus Professor at the University of Roehampton having led the development of training programmes in psychotherapy, counselling and counselling psychology, and initiated the Research Centre for Therapeutic Education, I now maintain a private practice in Hove/Brighton and Wimbledon.

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 and the Human Potential Project (University of Surrey/Quasitor).

Whilst I have worked in various capacities with the National Health Service (including providing clinical supervision to London teaching hospitals) 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 Chair of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy Universities Training College, Vice-Chair of the Universities Psychotherapy and Counselling Association, and Founding Chair of the Critical Psychotherapy Network, Founding Chair of the Southern Association of Psychotherapy and Counselling, and on the faculty of the Philadelphia Association.
