Attachment Based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist
I work both short term and long term and take my cue from the person I am seeing.
Some people come with a specific problem and some with a feeling that things have not been right for a long time.
The research shows that the best predictor of a good therapy is the working relationship between the therapist and client and so the first sessions are often for both of us to see if we are a good “fit”.
I have worked as a Counsellor and Psychotherapist since the mid 1990s. I trained as an Attachment-based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with the Bowlby Centre in London having trained as a Counsellor in Cambridge initially.
I am a member of the Forum for Independent Psychotherapists (FIP) a national organisation, part of the UKCP, and was its Chair for several years.
I am also a member of The Bury Practice for Counselling and Psychotherapists, a group of therapists working mainly in Bury St Edmunds but also Ely, Isleham and further East in Suffolk. We include Child Psychotherapists, CBT and Art therapists.
I prefer to work face to face in my Consulting Room in Isleham but understand that currently a phone call is often the only option.
My consulting room in Isleham (between Newmarket and Ely) is disabled friendly and it is very easy to park.
It is very private and quiet and looks out over the large garden.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
