My background  is in NHS mental health services where I have worked for over 20 years. I have worked as a Psychoanalyst and MBT practioner in the NHS and  I currently work  as a Specialist  Practitioner within a Beacon NHS Mental health crisis service  alongside my private practice.

 

I trained  in psychoanalytic psychotherapy at the Arbours Association in North London where the training programme is partly based around a collection of therapeutic communities. These are places which offer  support and containment to people who are experiencing acute mental distress and confusion and helps them to understand it.
