I provide once-weekly individual psychoanalytic psychotherapy, attachment-based couple psychotherapy and group analytic psychotherapy. I also offer clinical supervision to individuals or teams. I am happy to respond to email enquiries or telephone calls about what I can offer and my fees. I generally suggest that it is helpful to arrange a two session consultation - the beginning with a longer first appointment of 75 mins in which I develop a psychological formulation and take a personal history and a follow up 50 mins session, a week later, in which we can reflect further both on the first session and what has emerged since the first meeting.
My professional career has been predominantly in the NHS mental health service as a Consultant Adult Psychotherapist and as an area Lead for Psychology and Psychological Therapies in Sussex Partnership NHS Trust. Previously I worked as a trainer and consultant in the field of child protection specializing in the areas of childhood disability and institutional abuse of children.. My eawas as a specialist social worker in a multidisciplinary child protection unit.
