I am not theoretically rigid and deliberately use a range of models, including the person-centred and psychodynamic approaches. I believe that there is a special kind of 'equality' in the therapy relationship so I am not authoritarian or dogmatic. My focus is on helping clients to develop their interpersonal skills, sense of inner balance, and positive self-image.
Above all, I trust that the human imagination can contribute to working things out when all seems lost. In an era of financial stringency, I believe there is a power in the imagination that can contribute to the management of economic, social and practical problems.
I practice in London privately and in community psychotherapy projects for children under five years of age and their parents/carers. I also lecture on several university and professional training programmes in the UK and Europe and am the clinical community and outreach lead at Stillpoint Spaces London, a psychotherapy project for therapists and non-therapists alike.
My professional experience includes research posts in EU projects for the Universities of Heidelberg and Athens, editorial board membership of international journals and publication of articles and book chapters.
