"Each person is different.... the myth that heals is an individual work of art" - Iris Murdoch


“It was the best thing I have ever done. I learnt not to be a victim of my own life. I have taken away an awareness of how hard life can be and that I dont need to pretend to cope. I learnt very quickly, that you were not going to be a miracle worker and it wasn't you who was going to fix me. (I was very disappointed to hear that in our first few sessions!!)” - RH

“I learnt so much from working with you,....... your presence will stay with me for a long time. You were very present and attentive and took risks in your challenges and insights” - RC

“Clive provided me with a safe & compassionate space to explore my anger, pain & lack of self-esteem, especially in a loving relationship with men. We laughed a lot, I cried a lot..... I learnt that my story is my jewel, that I am intelligent, lovable, capable & trustworthy. His work is valuable beyond measure. His integrity gave me a reliable mirror to find my own.” - KV

“Working with you has had a profound effect on me. I have been deeply touched and moved by your perception and honesty. I have also been challenged in a way that has, at times, been very difficult for me, but also very powerful. I know that my expectations of myself and of my personal relationships will never be the same having worked with you.” - LW

"You saw in me what I couldn't bear to see - but you were patient with me and supported me whilst I regained my sight!" - SA


"I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of the professional development group. It was interesting having a space that defied labels such as: "supervision", "mentoring", "therapy" a curious space in which we could bring ourselves fully and be rather than perform, do, or search. It was a space in which we could share stories of triumphs and failure, lick our wounds and laugh.”

“We sometimes leafed through the rulebook questioning everything playfully. At times the group seemed to perform for me the role of a midwife, facilitating the birth of my identity as a newly qualified practitioner.”

“Clive is interested and curious about how we practice and who we are as individuals and therapists. As a group leader he can be funny, caring, profound, silly, irreverent and very generous in sharing his experience. He creates a safe, permission-giving space, is ready to help, advise, or just listen."

Clive is always supportive, engaging and challenging. An incisive and insightful practitioner, comfortable dealing with difficult subjects, he remains fully present and enjoys his work greatly; there is much laughter.
