Attached Staff


Alan Pope is our practice psychotherapist. He is trained at the Philadelphia Association and is a council member of the site for Contemporary Psychoanalysis. He has a wide experience of working both with individuals and couples. His approach is to recognize individual experience and by promoting self-awareness and understanding to enable people to make their own choice.

Referrals to Alan are made by the doctor and appointments operate on a waiting list basis. We will, where possible, give you an assessment appointment within two weeks of referral.
