I have been a psychotherapist for the past thirty years. I am trained in relationship, family and individual therapy and I have a particular interest in working with survivors of sexual, physical, emotional and psychological abuse. I use the framework of analytical psychology as the basis for my work.
Analytical psychology recognises that a person's experience of life has its genesis at a time before coping mechanisms are developed, before an independent sense of security and stability has had time to consolidate. It realises that the individual is deeply affected by the net of past experiences. They impact on the way in which present experiences are assimilated or repressed and how these experiences affect our present relationships and life experiences.

I have experience in working with the following issues:

  • Anxiety
  • Return to work
  • Childhood abuse
  • Couple counselling
  • Depression
  • Drug and alcohol management
  • Eating disorders
  • Grief
  • Sexual abuse
  • Relationship
  • Trauma and its aftermath

I have worked both in industry and in community health, and have been in private practice for the past ten years. I am a member of the Forum for Independent Psychotherapists as well as the Confederation for Analytical Psychology and the International Association for Analytical Psychology, and am on the register of both the British Psychoanalytic Council and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. I currently work in private practice in Sawston, Cambridgeshire.
