As a Jungian psychoanalyst I offer analysis and analytic psychotherapy to adults with a wide range of issues and I specialise in working with people who have eating disorders (see About My Practice).
In addition to my clinical work I offer individual and small group supervision to psychologists, psychotherapists, counsellors and other professionals who work in the mental health field seeing people with a broad range of issues.
I am also a Psychotherapy and Counselling Federation of Australia (PACFA)accredited supervisor and specialise in supervising clinicians who work with adults with eating disorders.
I work on Sydney’s lower north shore and have been in private practice since 1993 and have been supervising other clinicians since 2001. I also offer analysis / therapy and supervision by telephone or SKYPE for people who live interstate or outside Australia.
My training was with the Australian and New Zealand Society of Jungian Analysts (ANZSJA) and, as a supervising (training analyst) with ANZSJA, I offer analysis and supervision for those interested in entering Jungian or other psychodynamic training and for candidates in ANZSJA’s analytic training.
Since 2001 I have run clinical workshops and seminars in a number of countries including Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Europe, the USA and Canada, Singapore, South Africa and Russia (see Presentations)and have published a number of clinical and theoretical papers (see Publications).
In May 2014 I gave a paper called Working with Chronic and Relentless Self-Hatred: A Clinical Study and Some Thoughts at the Journal of Analytical Psychology’s (JAP)XIIth Conference in Berlin. The conference theme was ‘The Varieties of Jungian Clinical Experience: Complex, Identity, Intersubjectivity’.
A nine minute summary and the full thirty minute presentation of this paper are available on youtube.
In 2003 I received a Ph.D. from the University of Sydney (Department of Studies in Religion) for my work on gender, identity and analytical psychology.
A book based on this work was published by Brunner-Routledge in 2005 (see Publications).
