Professional Background and Experience

I am a Jungian Analyst and a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist, registered with UKCP.

I have a particular and longstanding interest in the work and ideas of Swiss psychiatrist and psychotherapist, Carl Jung. This dates back to 1995 when, at a time of personal crisis, I looked for a therapist and found myself with a Jungian Analyst.

I qualified initially in 1998 with the Postgraduate Diploma in Psychodynamic Theory and Practice at the University of Sussex. I went on to undertake further intensive training, qualifying firstly as a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist with WPF Therapy, and then as a Jungian Analyst with the Association of Jungian Analysts.

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. This included a two year Infant Observation with the Jungian Section of the British Psychotherapy Foundation, which affected me deeply, and a one year course in group processes with the Institute of Group Analysis.

I have been working privately from my consulting room in Horsham for over twenty years, with people coming to me at different stages of life, from very diverse backgrounds and seeking help with a wide variety of difficulties, and I now have a well established practice. Throughout that time I have had Jungian Analytic supervision with qualified and experienced Analysts and this has been a major influence on my professional development and my approach to my work in the consulting room.

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.

My clinical work in recent years has contributed to a growing interest in the long term psychological impact of boarding school.

Most importantly, I have consistently sought to develop my ability to work effectively not only through regular and frequent supervision but also through my own personal analysis.
