About me

I’m a Jungian & Psychoanalytic therapist and a Chartered Psychologist providing psychotherapy, counselling, psychology and supervision by Skype, FaceTime, Signal and phone. I also provide outdoor, walking psychotherapy & counselling.

I’ve been working as a psychotherapist, psychologist & counsellor for more than 30 years and I’ve been a visiting professor teaching psychoanalysis and psychopathology at Masaryk University in the Czech Republic since 2009. I was working for 15 years in the NHS, where I had posts as a Chartered Psychologist, a Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist and as a Clinical Lead for Psychotherapy and Psychology services.

Psychoanalytic & Jungian Psychotherapy

I work using a combination of Jungian and Psychoanalytic theories. This combination is quite common in the UK and is a method of therapy which aims to increase self understanding and emotional literacy. It therefore helps clients to become less controlled by their past and become more honestly self aware and so make better decisions about their lives and to optimise their possibilities for self development.

Couple & Marriage Counselling

I provide counselling for couples, both straight and gay, who are experiencing trouble in their relationship. This sometimes results in people developing and salvaging a strained relationship and sometimes it results in people concluding that the relationship is not a good enough fit and that they would be better off separating.

Stress Management

This is generally provided during the process of therapy and includes teaching, self hypnosis, stress management, relaxation techniques, mindfulness, meditation & visualisation. There is a page on Stress Management, Meditation & Visualisation on this website.


I also provide supervision for psychotherapists, counsellors, psychologists & psychiatrists - both students and fully qualified therapists and you are welcome to contact me to discuss this further. The way I work is roughly similar to that outlined in Patrick Casement's book "On Learning from the Patient"

If you have any questions about how I work or how I can help, please get in touch.
