I provide long-term and brief work to individuals and groups in private practice (NW London and London Bridge) and in the psychological therapies department of an NHS London teaching hospital. I am a tutor and group conductor on counselling trainings.
I have many years’ experience in the mental health field: in therapeutic communities, with adolescents, young people in care and with people with learning disabilities, and with those who work in these fields.
The earlier part of my professional career was as a teacher, trainer, advocate and counsellor, working with adults and young people. My experience in education and the social service sectors, along with a continuing interest in psychology, has given me a broad understanding of developmental and learning difficulties.
My outlook is primarily psychodynamic which recognises unconscious as well as conscious processes and behaviours. I am qualified as a group-analytic psychotherapist which means that I keep clearly in mind all aspects of a client’s life. I am influenced by experience in Cognitive Analytic Therapy (CAT) where the emphasis is on patterns of relating. I am familiar with and employ aspects of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) which tends to concentrate on habits of thinking.
I offer supervision and have a particular interest in supporting teachers, healthcare and social workers, individually and in groups.
I am a director on the Board of FPC (Foundation for Psychotherapy & Counselling) and am actively involved in GASI (Group Analytic Society International).
I am a member of and abide by the codes of ethics and good practice of the following organisations:
