Background Information

I have worked for many years as a Principle Mental Health Social Worker in addition to my psychotherapeutic work in private practice.  My practice is informed by working with adults with relationship difficulties.  Both my group analytic and individual psychotherapy work are distinguished by an emphasis on attachment, relationship and the group/therapeutic relationship as a secure base.

I have previously supervised social work practitioners and community development managers/workers.  I am a clinical supervisor on the Group Analytic Training course and I have a number of years experience as a manager/supervisor in a multi-disciplinary mental health team setting.
