I offer compassion focussed individual therapy - This therapy emphasizes the importance of applying compassion – for the self, for your loved ones, and for strangers – for living a healthy and happy life. I also offer group analytic psychotherapy - a form of psychotherapy by the group, of the group, including its conductor. Group analysis aims to achieve a healthier integration of the individual in his or her network of relationships.
I have worked in mental health services in the NHS for the past 30 years as a mental health nurse and psychotherapist - and have now started a small private practice in Birmingham. I am a full member of the Institute of Group Analysis and am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy as a therapist and approved supervisor
