Who am I?
I have spent my whole life working with people. After first studying Social Anthropology I worked with students before training for ordination as a priest in the Church of England in 1990/91. After seven years of parish work I became a university chaplain in order to concentrate on pastoral care. During the eighteen years I spent in that role I served on the management of the Oxford University Counselling Service and led my college's welfare provision. The experience of working closely with young adults and with staff in crisis, in the challenges of emotional development and distress, led me to train as a Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist. I qualified in 2013, and completed a year of Masters Degree research in 2014. During that period I spent five years as a volunteer counsellor and board member for a local low cost counselling organisation called The Listening Centre in Blackbird Leys, before returning to London in 2015.
Psychotherapy and Counselling near Victoria
Here I have a small private counselling and psychotherapy practice and I also do some psychotherapeutic work for charities, alongside my job as a Vicar at St Peter's Church, near Victoria. I see private clients at Calmer Clinics at Dolphin Square, Pimlico on Wednesdays, and in (or online from) from my study at St Peter's at some other times. I am a registered member of the BACP, I have regular supervision and maintain ongoing professional development training.
