I am a BPC registered Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and a Jungian analyst in training. I have a longstanding interest in the work and ideas of Carl Jung and I have wide and varied clinical experience over twenty years.
I have a well established private practice in Horsham and over the last twenty years I have worked with individuals from the local community coming from very diverse backgrounds, at all stages of life and bringing a wide variety of difficulties. My consulting room is in a quiet location on the edge of St. Leonard’s Forest and people come to me from Brighton and the South Coast, from Dorking and the Surrey Hills as well as from the surrounding towns and villages of East and West Sussex.
I also worked in an honorary capacity in NHS Secondary Care in Brighton for several years, including a period in the NHS Psychotherapy Department at Hove Polyclinic offering analytic psychotherapy to individuals struggling with more complex mental health issues.
In 2012 I completed a two year Infant Observation course with the Jungian Section (BJAA) of the British Psychotherapy Foundation (BPF). I observed a baby in his home each week from birth to two years in order to build up a picture of his developing inner world and relationships. My paper ‘Birds, Beasts and Babies – Notes from an Infant Observation’ was awarded the Roszika Parker prize 2013 by the British Journal of Psychotherapy and it was published in the Journal in November 2014. I am interested in the role of imaginal processes in those very early experiences before language is available, and the implications of this for later life and in the consulting room. I am also interested in the process and methodology of Infant Observation.
I offer sessions at a frequency of once to five times weekly. More frequent sessions can provide greater continuity and containment (the sense of being safely held so that deeper parts of the personality can be explored). This offers the potential for deep rooted and lasting change for inidviduals willing to engage in longer term therapy.
I offer long term Jungian analysis with sessions three to five times weekly.
