I am a qualified Group Analyst and Psychotherapist, working with groups, couples, and individuals. I have extensive experience working in the NHS, the voluntary sector and in further education, particularly in the areas of sexual health, drug and alcohol addiction, and mental health.
I run psychodynamic therapy groups and see couples and individuals both online and in person. I am particularly interested in helping young people with the transition between adolescence and early adulthood and people who have experienced sexual abuse.
A group analytic group meets weekly for 90 minutes in a confidential and a containing space. Over time, you will experience the benefits of exploring with other group members the issues that burden you and are causing you distress. We look at your past, as a means of exploring and understanding how it has shaped your present. Your evolving relationship with me and other group members will support you in becoming more aware of the choices you make in both your interpersonal relationships and life in general and how you can face the future in more constructive and creative ways.
I also offer regular non-managerial supervision to people working in challenging and stressful work settings.
