Psychotherapy in Oxford
I have practised for many years as a psychotherapist and Jungian analyst working with adults, children and adolescents. My background is in mental health services having held a joint appointment with the Croydon Mental Health Service and Warlingham Park Hospital. After qualifying in Social Work at the London School of Economics, I worked as a psychiatric social worker at the Kingsbury Child Guidance Clinic in London.
For eight years I was Head of Department in Individual Counselling at the Westminster Pastoral Foundation, giving me extensive experience in counselling. More recently, my psychotherapy practice has concentrated on Oxford and the surrounding areas.
