Psychotherapy, Couple Counselling, Supervision and Executive Coaching in Cambridge and Angel Islington, London.

Psychotherapeutic work is relational, it requires genuine personal engagement. Whether I'm working with you as part of a couple for couple counselling, coaching you to become a better leader, supervising your work, or working with you as your psychotherapist, the challenge is always about having new conversations that break us out of ourselves, our stresses, our tired and familiar narratives, heightened emotionality, personal drama and fear.

Psychotherapy and counselling provide a new way of seeing how to relate to ourselves and others, to life and to the world. How we see things often blinds us from seeing anything else.

The relationship is a key to good therapy.

The psychotherapist's task is to sit with people in such a way that they do not feel alone.

"The child is alone only in the presence of someone."

Donald Winnicott

WRITING

I often work with writers, artists and people more generally engaged in creative process. Some of whom have managed to got lost along the way, whilst others need a little help in getting there.

I've found writing helps me see what I think about life and psychotherapy.

These lines from Rainer Marie Rilke's poem Fictional Fact perfectly sums up how I approach writing::

'There is always a fiction in the fact
The fiction holds a lot of hidden facts
In the end, I found something which
might be the beginning of nothing
And now the paradox begins
with an open end'



My most recent blog is entitled, 'How to spend a penny'

On a morning train from Cambridge to London a woman looks up from her paperback offering me a smile as I sit opposite her. I take out my laptop to begin writing a piece about art in the consulting room.

An elderly couple join us. Before sitting down the man picks a penny up from the floor, places it on the table and declares, ‘Look dear, good fortune; I’ll be lucky all day.’

‘Ooh, don’t spend it all at once!’ is his companion’s scripted reply.

Though he had directed the comment to his companion, he was also addressing the other woman and I. It seemed like a ritualised interaction, drawing us into a performative intimacy peculiar to strangers sharing confined space on a train...
