I live and practise in North Wales in the town of Conwy. My professional experience includes Student Counselling at Bangor University where I was Head of the Counselling Service for ten years. I conducted analytic psychotherapy groups for mature students and students who self-harmed while training as a group analyst with the Institute of Group Analysis in Manchester. I also ran staff consultation groups. I have counselled in a G.P. practice, for Flintshire County Council Occupational Health Department, for the Primary Care Service (a scheme which provided therapy for doctors, dentists and pharmacists) and latterly, as Principal Psychological Therapist in an N.H.S. Psychological Therapies Department in Wrexham. As a group analyst I conducted long-term analytic psychotherapy groups for out-patients and supervised a wide range of clinicians. I retired from the N. H.S. in 2014 and am now in private practice.
My consulting room is in the town of Conwy close to road and rail links. I work on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays only, and see individuals for psychotherapy which is usually long-term and open-ended. I work psychodynamically/analytically, with a special interest in dreams. For psychotherapy patients, the norm is once weekly sessions, but I currently have a space for one training patient for Jungian analysis three times weekly, as part of my training with the Association of Jungian Analysts.
I also offer supervision and am a member of the British Association for Psychoanalytic and Psychodynamic Supervision.
I am a member of the Balint Society and an accredited Balint Group leader.
