About me and my therapy practice
I bring experience from a varied career in teaching and organisation development and have been working as a therapist for nearly 20 years. I have training in psychotherapeutic counselling, arts in therapy, psychoanalytic couple psychotherapy and Analytical Psychology. I work in a GP practice, at my consulting room at home and in central Wandsworth, 5 minutes from Wandsworth Town station. I teach on counselling skills courses and a psychodynamic psychotherapy course.
I believe the relationship between therapist and patient is fundamental in the work. Each encounter bring something different and there is scope to learn for patient and therapist. Self development (Individuation in Jungian terms) is very important in my work with individuals - I help patients understand themselves, their identity and their relationships.
I identify myself as developmental Jungian (I am a member of the Society of Analytical Psychology); I use a broad theoretical base including attachment theory, psychoanalytic theory as well as Jungian /post Jungian ideas. Dream work is an important part of my approach.
I work once or twice weekly with individuals and couples. The therapeutic space is important, so regular sessions at the same time is the ideal. I am suitably accredited to work with students from BACP trainings.
With couple work, the relationship is the patient. I work with couples to understand their relationships and work through the difficulties they are experiencing.
I work both from my home in Southfields and at 94, East Hill, Wandsworth, SW18 2HF.
