Training, qualifications & experience

I am UKCP registered and have over 25 years experience working with all kinds of people from different ethnic backgrounds traditions andy gender. I worked for the South London & Maudsley NHS Trust as a Senior Adult Psychotherapist for 15 years with secondary care patients and have maintained a private practice since the 1980's in North and South London and at present in Bristol. Over the years I have had clinical supervision for my clients with some eminent practitioners.

I am 14 years post qualified from The Guild of Psychotherapists and over the years have attended many short trainings and lectures in the field of Psychoanalysis, Psychotherapy and Counselling.

My orentation and thinking comes from an Attachment prespective which I believe underpins ones development to future adulthood. Our early attachment style often influences our present relationships which may not do not serve us well. My vast experience shows that working and thinking together in therapy can help make bettter choices in the future. I believe Counselling and/or Psychotherapy can really help and have had some remarkable outcomes from working with individuals and helping couples come to some resolution together whether to stay together or amicably part.
I work with childhood trauma that links with attachmen issues. I have also worked as a supervisor for Bristol Bereavement service.
