I trained as a psychotherapist between 1988 and 1992 in St. Bartholomew’s Hospital, Department of Psychological Medicine and Goldsmiths’ College University of London (through which I am a registered UKCP Psychotherapist).
During over 25 years as a psychotherapist I’ve worked freelance in a range of public and private health and education services. As well as being a psychotherapist in private practice, I am a lecturer in group analysis and large group conductor at Metafora, pioneer in the training of art therapists in Spain and accredited by la Universitat Pompeu Fabra. I am also co-leader of two student supervision groups, lecturer, tutor and large group conductor on the Masters program in Dance Movement Therapy at the Autonomous University of Barcelona .
I have substantial experience working in the adult outpatient field and of working with challenging teenagers and their families. Before moving to Barcelona in 1999, I was a Professional Member, secretary and Professional Development Committee member of the British Association of Group Psychotherapists and Chair of the Goldsmiths’ Association of Group Psychotherapists.
I am currently on the Management Committee of the Group Analytic Society International and Editor (since 2014) of Group Analytic Contexts.

My philosophy and orientation
As a psychotherapist, I seek to engage the person or people who employ my services in an open, serious and reflective conversation about themselves and ourselves.
Although, I specialize in the psychodynamic and group analytic approaches to psychotherapy, my approach is essentially eclectic, pragmatic and flexible, grounded in a broad base of theory and practice and the belief that individuals are social through and through. This means that whether I work with individuals, couples or groups I will be helping people focus on the relationship, family and community roots of their difficulties. I believe that many of the difficulties that bring people into psychotherapy are deeply linked to difficulties in our wider society.
I invite you to visit my blog Barcelona Psychoblog, where you can read some of my writing and thinking on issues related to migration, being abroad, living in foreign languages, Barcelona, and more.
