‘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)

Welcome

I am a senior Jungian Analyst & Psychotherapist in private practice in the Bath & Bristol area and online.  My initial training was at the CG Jung Institute in Zurich. 

I am currently offering short-term psychotherapy consisting of 6 sessions (max). I am no longer taking on new clients for regular weekly psychotherapy which is open-ended.

Regrettably I am currently fully booked for several months ahead and therefore am closed to taking any further bookings for the time being. 

If you would like to be notified when I am open to taking further bookings please feel free to drop me a brief email saying ‘Please add me to your Notification List.’  This is not a Waiting List.  But it does mean that you will be informed when further spaces become available and I am taking bookings once again.

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.
