Psychotherapy, Analysis and Supervision
I am a Jungian Analyst and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with twenty five years' clinical experience. About Me
I offer psychotherapy, analysis and supervision to individuals in the Sussex area. My consulting room is in Horsham in a quiet location on the edge of St. Leonard's Forest .
Indeed, I see therapy as a process in which together we seek to create a relationship in which all manner of troubling questions about the mind, body and soul can be explored in a spirit of curiosity, openness and honesty. (My Approach)
I have a particular and long standing interest in the work of Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist Carl Jung and I am especially influenced by his ideas. Jung's unique contribution could perhaps be summed up by saying that he had a profound respect for the individual and the wisdom buried in the individual's own psyche. Like Jung, I believe that crises are a calling for psychological development.
As a Jungian Analyst I am qualified to work at depth and offer sessions at a frequency of up to five times weekly.
I have completed a two year Jungian Infant Observation. My paper, 'Birds, Beasts and Babies - Notes from an Infant Observation', won the Roszika Parker prize in 2013 and was published in the British Journal of Psychotherapy in 2014. I shall be presenting my paper and reflecting on the theme of 'Infant Observation with Soul in Mind' at the C.G. Jung Club in London on 20th January 2022. All are welcome to attend.

As well as providing ongoing individual and group supervision to therapists in the Sussex area, I also offer a one year Jungian supervision group in order to provide the opportunity for therapists from different backgrounds to view their work through a Jungian lens. I am a member of BAPPS.
I invite you to take some time to look at my website. You will find information about my qualifications, training and experience (About Me, Qualifications). You will find information about my approach to my work with individuals in the consulting room and how to go about starting therapy.
You will also find a page about my interest in Infant Observation as it relates to imagination and creativity, and in the context of Jung's own experiences. ('Reveries towards Childhood'). And I hope that you will read about the Dragon in St. Leonard's Forest, a local legend which offers yet another window onto Jungian ideas.
If you are a counsellor or psychotherapist working in the Surrey/Sussex area and you are looking for a supervisor then please visit my supervision page.
My consulting room is in Horsham, on the edge of St. Leonard's Forest and not far from Crawley.
People come to me from Brighton. Worthing and the South Coast, Dorking, Leatherhead and the Surrey Hills as well as from Crawley, Haywards Heath, Billingshurst, Southwater and the surrounding towns and villages of East and West Sussex.
I am centrally located and easily reached, being fairly near to the M23/A23 between Gatwick, Crawley and Brighton. I am close to Pease Pottage and Mannings Heath. I am also not far from the A24 between Worthing, Dorking and Leatherhead.
