About me

I am a registered UKCP analytic psychotherapist and counsellor with over 20 years experience working with many different people from all walks of life.

I have been in private practice in Oxford for many years seeing people for both long-term analytic psychotherapy and short-term focused therapy.

Training, qualifications & experience

From 1986 to 1990 I studied Psychoanalysis and Philosophy with the Philadelphia Association in London. I am formally accredited with the UKCP and a member of the Site for Psychoanalysis, a successor organisation of the Philadelphia Association.

Prior to training as a psychotherapist I worked for several years in the public sector as a senior social worker and as a community worker. I worked in mental health and then with children and families before moving on to become a manager. It was in this capacity that I developed my skills and resources as a supervisor and coach.

I have been practising as a psychotherapist since 1989 working with both short term and long term patients as well as supervising and training counsellors and psychotherapists. I also work as a coach and non managerial supervisor for a number of voluntary and statutory sector personal, including social workers, community workers and managers at all levels.

I have a Certificate of Qualification in Social Work (CQSW) and an MA in Social Policy and Sociology. I completed 5 years training in analytic psychotherapy and am fully accredited with the UKCP.
