For thirty years we have been contributing to psychoanalytic psychotherapy, art therapy, and counselling trainings as teachers, supervisors, and training analysts.
For qualified counsellors, psychotherapists, and art therapists we run seminars and workshops and are invited to teach and lecture (including publicly) on psychoanalytic (including Jungian), relational, and phenomenological theorising and practices (CPD). Themes include questions of identity, differences, race, class, gender, sexualities, creativity, trauma, mourning, recognition, temporality, language, and mind/body relationships. We have both published widely in this area (see our Publications page)
Please see our website www.philospsyche.com for details of our seminars, workshops, and lectures.

- Supervision for psychotherapists and counsellors (including trainees).
We offer supervision for therapists on a weekly, fortnightly, monthly, or one-off basis. As relational/phenomenological therapists our focus in supervision is on the uniqueness of the client-therapist relationship and its multiple conscious and unconscious meanings within particular socio-historical and cultural contexts.
We also offer
- Management and organizational consultations and supervision, including on management of staff with emotional difficulties.
- Consultations on choosing a psychoanalytic psychotherapy training.
