About me

I am an analytical psychologist, psychotherapist, and supervisor based in Cambridge. While I work with a wide variety of people who have a range of issues and concerns, each person who comes to see me is special and each problem or concern they have is unique to them. Some of the concerns and issues that bring people to contact me are deep trauma and feelings of desperation, while others find themselves faced with an unexpected situation or difficult decision or want to explore and develop a deeper understanding of their life experience.

Whatever the reason for wanting to contact me, I offer a quiet, safe space where a person can talk – and be listened to and heard.

As a Jungian Analyst and Psychotherapist, I often invite a client to explore dreams and pictures with me. Doing so can indicate ways for a person to understand some of the deeper nature of individual experience – and find ways forward. As a result, a person may discover new creative energy and meaning in their life.

Since the pandemic, I now offer online sessions as well. This means that I can offer appointments to those who are unable to get to Cambridge.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a Member of the Guild of Analytical Psychologists (G.A.P.), the Independent Group of Analytical Psychologists (IGAP), the International Association Analytical Psychology (IAAP) and UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

I work mainly with individuals, and also with couples. I have previously practiced as a family therapist and social worker and worked with children, families, couples and individuals, in a number of therapeutic settings.

Having worked extensively in the business sphere, I also have a wide understanding of pressures relating to work-life balance, including the effects on other family members.
