CTP Dipl, RP

STATUS: CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS

I spent my early childhood in England living by a river in the beautiful green Surrey Hills and emigrated to Toronto with my family in 1964 at age 10. I am grateful for the move to Toronto as it led me to discovering Therafields, a psychoanalytically informed therapeutic community that developed in The Annex in the early 60’s. This communal living and intensive group therapy environment provided a crash course in learning about my own unconscious dynamics as well as understanding other peoples’ inner lives. Daily immersion in a loving, challenging engagement with others provided an emotionally profound foundation for my development as a psychotherapist.

I then trained as a therapist with The Centre For Training In Psychotherapy (CTP). I began working with clients in 1984 and started working as a group therapist in 1989. I have led groups for over twenty-five years and have been doing marital/couples therapy since 1995.

Working to unravel and comprehend the interior life is my true passion and calling. Our internal experience deeply informs how dissatisfied or fulfilled we are. I find nothing more worthwhile and creative than entering into a deep conversation and emotional exchange with another human being. I know from personal experience as a therapy client along with my 32 years as a practicing clinician that psychotherapy is an effective and powerful modality for emotional healing and psychological development.

Alongside my clinical work, I have been practicing the discipline of meditation for the last ten years and am a serious spiritual seeker, widely researching Buddhism, Vedanta, Esoteric Christianity along with Vasistha’s Yoga, to comprehend the nature of mind and reality.
