Services & Practice

I have a psychotherapy practice using psychodrama in South Norfolk in the town of Diss. I offer a weekly group and individual psychotherapy sessions. Clients are self-referred and live locally in Norfolk.

At 'Mind in Camden' in London, I facilitate a weekly psychodrama group. This has been established since 2009 and it is still going strong. Clients are referred through Mind in Camden.

I facilitate occasional one-day workshops.  People enjoy these as a mixture of personal work and experiencing psychodrama in action. I offer these workshops for charities and counselling centres who are interested.





Areas of Special Interest

I am interested in using psychodrama for what I call 'small pieces of work'. Acting this out can bring important insights to the client in a safe and brief way.

I am interested in a topic that I call: 'Talk, Talk, Talk'. This refers to the way in which some clients obscure what they are feeling by non-stop talking. I have explored how psychodrama can get through to the heart of the matter with the 'Show me, don't tell me' approach.








Qualifications & Experience

* Training in Oxford: I attended training at the Oxford School of Psychodrama and Integrative Psychotherapy. My trainers were Peter Haworth and Susie Taylor who are well-known and respected. I started training in 1998 and most of it was completed by 2003. I still had to run a weekly group and write my dissertation and this was achieved by 2006



* My training practice in the NHS: my training involved facilitating a weekly group with real patients to prove that I could professionally handle the issues that arise. I had an honorary contract for 3 years at an NHS hospital (Mile End Hospital) where I ran a weekly group for out-patients. This included assessing patients as well as facilitating the group of 5-6 members with depression and anxiety




As the editor of "Tele" the BPA newsletter from 2003 to 2010, I co-authored many articles that were published in "Tele" (now Teletronic).
