CHRISTINE BLAKE

HAZEL CALLAWAY

Hello, I have a background in Social Work, specialising in Family Therapy and Mental Health and also managed a counselling service.

After I finished my training at The Bowlby Centre (then CAPP) in 1993, I worked at the Women’s Therapy Centre, in private practice and was a member of the CTC. One of my interests is the provision of therapy for people diagnosed as “too ill” for work, specialising in work with people who have experienced sexual abuse. At WTC, I helped to establish a therapeutic residential resource, a secure base for women as an alternative to hospitalisation.

After taking time out to travel, I am currently in practice in Devon where I also work with a scheme providing counselling for School based Education Staff.

HELEN CORDERY

Hello. I started training at The Bowlby Centre in 2006, but am currently taking some time out. My plan is to return to the course in October 2010, but in the meantime I am gaining experience as a therapist through a placement with Women & Health in Camden.

I am a registered dietitian and have worked in a variety of specialities, although the majority of my dietetic career involved working with people with eating disorders. I particularly enjoyed working with people living with severe and enduring anorexia nervosa, and saw many of my patients make significant changes whilst I worked with them over the years.

Now I work in Children’s Centres, (previously known as Sure Start), with 0-5 year olds. Hearing some of the struggles people have with feeding their infant reminds me how central our relationship with food can be to our developing sense of selves, and the relationship with others.

EMERALD DAVIS

I am from Guyana. South America and after working in the many disciplines in Nursing, found my ‘niche’ in Attachment-based Psychotherapy. I have a small private practice in South London.

As well as being Chair of The Bowlby Centre, I also am a training psychotherapist & a Supervisor. I am passionate about our work especially working psychotherapeutically with people with Learning Disabilities & with Dissociative Disorders.

BENJAMIN MARR

Benjamin has had a private practice for over 7 years. His approach to therapy is one of a deep belief in the clients ability to heal, resolve issues, and move forward.

He states “we come to understand what we believe to be true about ourselves, we realise as well, that these beliefs come from the messages / responses others gave us at a very young age. Questioning these beliefs makes changes possible. The process of bridging the old ways with the new. Hence, the emphasis on the word – relational.”

BRIONY MASON

I completed my training in 2009 and work in private practice in North London and at The Bowlby Centre. I work as a Psychotherapist at St George’s Hospital in the Eating Disorders day unit and am involved with The Relational School.

I enjoy yoga, walking, the theatre, reading, gardening, and most of all sailing, which I’m just getting back to after a long gap.

EMMA STARK

I am an attachment-based psychoanalytic psychotherapist in private practice. I trained at The Bowlby Centre (then CAPP) after a career teaching physics. I now teach at The Bowlby Centre and have a particular interest in sibling relationships and dreams.

I am also an advocate of a whole body approach to therapy and on a personal level try to achieve this by meditating and exercising regularly, including playing for Tower Hamlets ladies football team in Victoria Park on Sundays.

TORI SETTLE

I trained with CAPP in 1997 and have been actively and happily involved with the centre ever since. I am currently teaching the Infant Observation seminar and am Chair of the Clinical Training Committee, a role I have been in for just over 4 years and one which is a constant challenge and delight all at the same time. It has been a pleasure to maintain such close links with the Bowlby community and to witness so many of our students going through the training and becoming registered psychotherapists.

I am currently on the Executive committee and have a keen interest in what the future might hold for the centre in terms of expansion and development. My background before training at CAPP, at the age of 30, was in competitive 3 day eventing which I retired from in my mid 20s, and in retail management (Waterstones Booksellers.) I currently have a busy private practice in addition to my Bowlby roles and in my free time I compete with my partner in LGBT ballroom dancing both in the UK and abroad..

After studying social anthropology and social and political science, I worked for the Citizen’s Advice Bureau for several years as Advisor, staff trainer, and deputy manager of Sutton CAB. From the ’90s onwards I embarked on my involvement with the psychotherapy field and had three years training in Integrative and Humanistic Psychotherapy prior to discovering Attachment based Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy which felt more suitable for me.

My main creative outlets are writing and art work including painting. I have a private practice and am a Course Tutor, teacher, and CTC member with The Bowlby Centre and am also involved with the Curriculum Development Group, website development, and obtaining university accreditation.

Mei-FungeResourceMEI-FUNG CHUNG

I am enjoying being part of The John Bowlby Centre, which I joined as a trainee in 2007. Initially having trained in the arts before entering journalism, I am interested in the creative feminine and how attachment based psychotherapy can encourage a voice and inclusion.

I am involved with Special Projects, development and fundraising at JBC and have a particular interest in women’s issues, gender and race. I also love hot air balloons!

ORIT BADOUK EPSTEIN

When I finally found CAPP in 2000, I felt like finding home; nothing made more sense to who I am. In my north London practice I find it most rewarding working with clients who endured trauma across the spectrum, I have particularly developed passion for working with sever trauma, dissociation and multiplicity.

I also enjoy working with parents since children are the easier clients to respond to an attachment input. I am part of the executive in CAPP, coordinating the publicity for the school.

ROXY WILDING

After a career in the music industry, a more reflective environment beckoned. I now have a private practice and am involved with The Bowlby Centre CTC and CPD Groups.

Music is still important though, as are theatre, cinema and books. I am torn between town and country, but luckily am able to partake in the joys of both.

STEVE ASHLEY

Hello! I’m Steve and am a psychotherapist who trained with The Bowlby Centre (then CAPP) between 1995 and 1999. I live and practice in Spain and use EMDR, particularly in trauma work, which complements very well my attachment-based approach. I work, in the main with ex-pats, from a number of countries from Venezuela to Iceland and this is a tremendous learning opportunity for me. It is however no surprise to learn the issues people bring are fundamentally the same, regardless of the geographic origins of clients.

In my spare time I am working to bring Samaritans to Spain.

tomforresourceTOM HIGGINS

My journey towards becoming a psychotherapist was strongly influenced by my attempts to understand the personalities and behaviours of the children I was working with, as a primary school teacher. Since then, over the past 10 years I have trained with The Bowlby Centre and have worked full time in NHS mental health services, including forensic psychiatry, Child and Adolescent mental health and Peri-natal mental health.

I currently work on an NHS Treatment programme providing intensive 4-days per week group and individual psychotherapy for people diagnosed with a personality disorder.

I also have a private practice. I feel passionate about working with those who have experienced oppression. I have taught on The Bowlby Centre’s training course.

My interests include finding pockets of stillness and silence in a busy life and long walks in the countryside.

JANE PARKINSON

SUSANNE LEVIN

‘No man is an island…’ John Donne

When faced with difficulties many of us try to deal with it alone. It is my experience that this usually does not lead very far. Instead it is when we work and think together with someone else that we are most likely to get out of our unhelpful patterns. This process helps us to find more liberating and constructive paths.

I have worked with most issues as for example anger management, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, phobias, relationship and child related issues, separation, divorce, OCD, psychosomatics, stress and many others.

I work in The Farringdon Practice in EC1, which is minutes from Farringdon Station and ten minutes from St Paul’s.

My website is www.psychotherapyec1.weebly.com
