I am member of the Australian and New Zealand Society of Jungian Analysts (ANZSJA), the International Association of Analytical Psychology (IAAP), the Australian and New Zealand Arts Therapies Association (ANZATA), the Couples and Family Psychotherapy Association of Australasia (CAFPAA) and I am an overseas member of the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT).

As a Jungian Analyst and Art Psychotherapist, I aim to provide a trusting relationship within a safe, confidential and thoughtful environment. I work collaboratively with individuals, couples and groups in order to try and help them achieve a greater understanding of themselves within the context of their family relationships and intergenerational inheritances. Long distance sessions available by phone and SKYPE.

Jungian Analysis

Jungian analysis is based on the theoriesof Carl Gustav Jung. Jung was a Swiss Psychiatrist who along with Freud, developed psychoanalysis and psychotherapy. Jung believed that unconscious experience is a rich source which contains the ingredients that can enable the individual to have a rich and fulfilling life.  He also believed that we become who we are through our relationships with others people.

We only become ourselves with people and for people…the self is like a crowd, therefore being oneself, one is also many…. Being an individual is always a link in a chain; it is not an absolutely detached situation, in itself only, with no connection outside.”
Jung 1988

Art Psychotherapy

“Often the hands know how to solve a riddle with which
the intellect has struggled in vain." Jung 1960/69
Art psychotherapy  and art therapy offer patients opportunities to use art materials and process to support their expression of and thought about the feelings linked to the difficulties in their lives.

"Art therapy…….has served a varied and complex client group arguably better than any other single modality.....I believe that ....art therapy has the key, or perhaps a key, to our understanding of the mechanisms underpinning change in all
kinds of psychological treatments...."

Peter Fonagy 2012.
