I am a psychoanalyst working in private practise and offer supportive supervision to counsellors/psychotherapists and trainees from other modalities wishing to develop an understanding of psychoanalytic/psychodynamic approaches, as well as those already following a psychodynamic or psychoanalytic approach.
My focus with new trainees is helping them to discover their own style and approach and their own self-reliance when faced with the demands of counselling work.
For those already qualified, I am happy to offer either time limited sessions focusing on a particular set of clinical issues or a more open-ended arrangement.
In addition to my private practise work I run supervision groups for a variety of agencies including the Psychosis Therapy Project
I teach and act as clinical tutor on psychoanalytic psychotherapy trainings in London and Truro and as a visiting teacher on the Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Practice at Oxford University. I am a training committee member for The Site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis acting as personal tutor and teacher for both their London and Cornwall psychoanalytic trainings. Current and recent teaching engagements include transsexuality and psychoanalysis; Borderline Personality Disorder; working with sexual material in the consulting room; phantasy in Freud's writings; feminine sexuality and the maternal; psychotherapy and class; Narcissism and disorders of the Self; Andre Green; psychoanalytic theories of autism; Foucault and psychoanalysis; and the clinical practise of D W Winnicott.
