Professional Background and Experience
I am a BPC registered Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and a Jungian analyst in training.
I qualified initially in 1998 with the Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice at the University of Sussex. I then went on to undertake further intensive training, qualifying as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with WPF Therapy, and now I am in the final stages of a post qualification training for experienced psychotherapists with the Association of Jungian Analysts (AJA). It was always my intention from the beginning, some twenty five years ago, to eventually qualify as a Jungian Analyst and this will be the achievement of that goal.
In addition to my formal training I have studied independently, read widely and attended many seminars and courses in order to understand more about the human condition and the therapeutic process.
At the same time I have widened my clinical experience, working in a number of different settings, including a period of several years in an honorary capacity in NHS Secondary Care.
And, more importantly, I have sought to develop my ability to work effectively not only through regular and frequent supervision but also through my own personal analysis.
