I am a qualified Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist (BPC registered) and I am in the final stages of training as a Jungian analyst with AJA. I have wide experience over more than twenty years both in private practice and in NHS secondary care. I offer psychotherapy, analysis and supervision from my consulting room in Horsham.
I am currently able to offer individual or group supervision at a reduced fee to counsellors and psychotherapists in the Sussex area. Please see my website for further information.
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.
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 impact upon the observer of the very intense experience of being immersed in the developing world of the infant regularly over a period of time without verbal interaction. Indeed, the majority of observers would attest to the lasting impact of this experience.
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.
