Talk-based and creative

psychotherapy via video-link


I usually see individuals, couples, children and families for

therapy at Chiddingfold, between Haslemere and Godalming

in Surrey, but I have been running more and more of my private

sessions remotely over Skype, and of course during

the pandemic, exclusively so.


 Talk-based therapy is most effective when the pathways to the unconscious are as clear as possible, as early as possible. It is

where the language of symbol and metaphor is often key because

it engages the psyche's essential instinct to play, and in doing so,

helps the client to be more at ease. These are expressive and inevitably creative tools, and sooner or later they become integral to progress in any effective course of psychotherapy.

Creative psychotherapy uses the language of symbol and metaphor to address issues in a 'one removed' way and helps

people think, feel and express themselves in a less guarded way.

As a result, revealing and healing can take place sooner and          

at a deep level. These concepts that underpin my practice               

are in fact termed 'Depth Psychology'.
