About me

I am a Jungian Analyst, Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and Supervisor with over 20 years clinical experience. I work in private practice with adults and young people and am also employed as a Psychotherapist in the NHS. Registered BPC and UKCP.

I can offer shorter or longer term work depending on the client's needs and wishes, and am also trained to see individuals seeking deep change in themselves, who wish to attend several times a week. I offer clinical supervision for other therapists, psychologists and counsellors.

Psychoanalytic work and Jungian Analysis gives importance to understanding our unconscious processes and the self, via the therapeutic relationship, dreams, images and the resonance of early relationships/attachment throughout our lives.

I am experienced in working with clients who have experienced early developmental trauma and have an attachment informed approach.

As well as private work I have over 20 years clinical experience as a psychotherapist and supervisor in a range of mental health services working with adults, children and families and hold an NHS Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy post.

I also have a background practising with children and young people, and in research. I have taught infant and young child observation seminars at Post Graduate level. I am experienced in working psychotherapeutically with adoption issues and Looked After Children.
