About me

Photo of MarcusI have been working in the field of mental health and psychological wellbeing for over 30 years. I worked for Social Services and the NHS for a number of years – in an acute psychiatric in-patient unit, in a day centre running groups, and in an NHS psychotherapy department. During this time I worked with people with all kinds of mental health difficulties. I also have a background in teaching and business.

I am also a member of Psychotherapy Sussex, (external link) a local association of analytical psychotherapists working in Sussex. I am registered with the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (external link) and the British Psychoanalytic Council (external link). I am also a member of the International Association for Analytical Psychology (external link).

I practise under the Ethical Codes of the British Psychoanalytic Council and the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy.

I have published three books, Feeling, Being and the Sense of Self (2007), Understanding Dreams in Clinical Practice (2011), and Into the Darkest Places: Early Relational Trauma and Borderline States of Mind (2016), published by Karnac Books, now Routledge. I have published a number of papers and given talks around the country and abroad.

I am currently UK Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Analytical Psychology.
