Jungian Analysis, Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems

‘And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.’  (Anais Nin)


I am a senior Jungian Analyst & IFS Psychotherapist in private practice in the Bath & Bristol area and online.   I am currently offering short-term psychotherapy mainly using Internal Family Systems (IFS).  I am no longer offering psychotherapy which is ongoing & open-ended.

Sorry! I am fully booked for several months ahead and therefore unable to answer queries, or take any new bookings, until further notice.  I will put a note on this website when I am open for taking bookings once again.  Please note that any future bookings will only be for short-term psychotherapy (6 sessions max).

If you wish to look for another practitioner specialising in Internal Family Systems (IFS) here are links to the UK Directory & the International Directory.

How To Bring About Change

As a classically-trained Jungian I’ve devoted much of my life to finding out what really works to bring about change. I’ve always had a particular interest in helping clients to free up the blockages that are making them feel stuck, so that they can break out and achieve their full potential. I’ve always seen depression, anxiety, and pretty much most other psychological problems, as being communications from the unconscious, rather than enemies. They need to be listened to, and learned from, not fought against and pushed aside. We’ve all tried the ‘fighting’ method and found that it doesn’t work!

Specialist Trainings

Over the years I’ve completed a number of specialist trainings in order to enhance my work as a Jungian, especially:-

Whether it be wanting to bring resolution to ordinary, current, every-day life issues, or working to heal PTSD, trauma and the wounds of early childhood, I’ve found these two modern, cutting-edge modalities to be extraordinarily powerful and effective, and well-suited to short-term therapy.
