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 at the Awareness Centre in Tooting (Monday evenings). I teach on counselling skills course 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 post trainee at 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.
