I am an experienced practitioner and teacher with a humanistic and relational philosophical outlook. I currently teach at Metanoia Institute in London and Worcester University.

Over the past five years, I have been working with clinicians from a variety of orientations: person-centered, art psychotherapy, transactional analysis, and psychodynamic. I prefer a collegial and democratic approach to supervision. I believe in supporting supervisees to develop their own authority and way of work that feels true to who they are. 


I have experience working with individuals and groups in a variety of settings, including NHS, NGOs, training institutes, and private practice. I have worked as an assessor and have been an examiner on viva exams. I have written academic papers and delivered workshops on various psychotherapy issues. I like to share ideas, experiences, and clinical stories and reflect on issues I have grappled with in private practice: the experience of being silenced in the room, the neurobiological processes of stress, working with groups, conducting assessments, and surviving a client's suicide.

I am deeply committed to providing evidence that what I do work and furthering knowledge in the field of psychotherapy. I conduct clinical research using pragmatic case study methodology and the hermeneutic single-case efficacy study. I am very interested in working with clinicians who want to develop an ethical evidence-based practice. 

I am available to discuss a wide range of psychotherapy issues such as:

  • dual diagnosis
  • working with clients with mood and personality disorders, psychosomatic disorders (hysteria), attachment disorders
  • processing distressing/disturbing emotional response to a client
  • erotic transference
  • assessing suicide risk and working with suicidal clients
  • recovering after a client's suicide
  • dealing with professional complaints 
  • ethics 
  • the myths of psychotherapy
  • burnout and self-care
  • academic writing 
  • case study research
  • auto-ethnography
  • qualitative research
  • neuroscience

I offer face-to-face, telephone, and Skype supervision. Sessions are £60 for one hour or £75 for an hour and a half.
