Training

Chris’s original training at the Westminster Pastoral Foundation was based on the psychoanalytic model and his subsequent training at the Association of Jungian Analysts was steeped in Jung and the post-Jungian tradition.

His training and practice reflect a position that holds the middle ground between these two traditions, drawing on both ends of the psychoanalytic and Jungian spectrum.

Thus he works intensively if it will benefit the therapeutic process, and the individual has the psychic energy (time, money, desire) for the task. For others he offers once weekly work, which can be demanding enough and sometimes the better choice.

Rather than try and impose a prescribed treatment plan on the process, he will endeavour to meet the individual as they present themselves.
