I am also a member of the Chiron Association of Body Psychotherapists (CABP), The Relational School (UK) and the International Association for Relational Psychoanalysis and Psychotherapy (IARPP).

I see therapy as providing a kind of holding over time in a way that elements of internal reality can come together and be known. Many of the troubles that bring people to therapy are actually ways of coping with painful and distressing experiences. Thankfully these same troubles can also direct us to what needs attention. Therapy can provide a space in which we attend to the underlying feelings and thoughts so that troubling symptoms, such as relationship difficulties or depression and anxiety, can be understood and addressed.

My core training in Body Psychotherapy highlighted for me the role of bodily impulses, sensations, symptoms and feelings as a gateway to the unconscious. The question of embodiment provides a compass in the process of integration. Of equal interest to the ways in which therapy can become a crucible of self-discovery is how this enterprise gets derailed and how the pull back to something familiar can thwart the ability to grow through experience.

I have been in private practice since 2004, and complemented this with work as an Honorary Psychotherapist within the NHS over 5 years. Over time I have gravitated towards a more psychoanalytic understanding of the potential of and hindrances to engaging with the life of the inner world and this has become an important influence in my approach.
