Based in the UK, in Brighton, I have been working as a therapist for more than 30 years and as such have a great deal of experience and understanding of the difficulties we can all face at times. I draw on the insights of psychodynamic, CBT and systemic models of therapy and have worked with people all round the world: both in long-term or time limited setting using video-calling, email and phone since training in online work over 10 years ago.
As a qualified teacher and experienced trainer, university lecturer and consultant, I am also interested in management and organisational dynamics and have substantial experience of providing work-place therapy.
I am the founder and Clinical Director of the Rock Clinic, a charity providing counselling and psychotherapy in Brighton for over 30 years, I am experienced and well-placed to advise on similar projects. I recently retired as Director of the University of Sussex Counselling service which additionally has given me the experience of working to provide therapy within the organisational framework of a large institution.
My supervision and consultancy work sits alongside my clinical casework with individual clients and couples.
