I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist and a group analyst. I trained at the Isis Centre in Oxford and at the Turvey Institute of Group-Analytic Psychotherapy in Bedfordshire and have been practising as a therapist and counsellor for over twenty years. I have worked in schools and GP Practices and for many years was the Practice Counsellor at Deddington Health Centre and the White House Surgery, Chipping Norton.
I now run a private therapy practice from my home in Charlbury working with individuals and groups. I am also a qualified supervisor and offer clinical supervision to counsellors, therapists, psychologists and other health professionals. I have a special interest in facilitating reflective practice groups for doctors – known as ‘Balint Groups’ . I have also run staff groups for Oxfordshire County Council, for a therapeutic gardening community, and for a charity working with the homeless.
I am an active teacher and trainer. I have been a tutor on the Post Graduate Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling at the University of Oxford for 11 years. I also teach on the Oxford Foundation Course in Group Analysis, and I am a member of the staff team on the Foundation and Qualifying Courses in Group Analysis in Tirana, Albania
