About me and my therapy practice

I am an existential psychotherapist, counsellor and supervisor registered in the United Kingdom (through UKCP and BACP) and in Europe (through the EAP). I now work privately in Lewes, after 20 years in an NHS hospital, where I ran two specialised psychotherapy services - for cancer patients and their carers, and for post-Intensive Care patients. 

My private work is general: I enjoy working with whatever issues you bring, while also bearing in mind your familial and broader existential context. I also have a strong interest in the way we carry, in our bodies, past traumas as well as the stresses of everyday life, and I integrate into my existential work understanding derived from Sensorimotor Psychotherapy – a trauma therapy informed by the neuroscientific research of recent years. My systemic constellation training has helped me to become more aware of the broader picture of a client’s life. This can often be seen in trauma that is carried and patterns that repeat themselves in families, often down the generations. 

You can choose to come either for a few sessions, over a few weeks or months, or else on a longer-term basis. 

Publications: I have edited two books for Routledge and contributed chapters on existential therapy and supervision.
