I am a psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice in Lewes and registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy. Originally qualifying as a psychodynamic counsellor with the Westminster Pastoral Foundation then as a psychotherapist with The Guild, I now work eclectically within a psychodynamic framework. My experience over the last 25 years has included short term focussed work within the NHS, in Lewes Prison and in Brighton University Health Service.
I now see young people and adults on an individual basis for both short and longer term sessions covering a range of emotional and mental health needs. Of particular interest to me is the role played by creativity (in whatever form) within the healing process.
A long-term interest in Buddhist psychology influences my work. I have run 'Mindfulness Courses' and consider of value the inclusion of the concepts of Mindfulness should it seem appropriate.
I also offer supervision within a psychodynamic framework.
