Balint Group Leader work

    I have always been interested in the subtle and complex interrelation between psychological processes, the body and physical illness. My work in Primary Care in Newham over nearly a decade gave me first hand experience of the particular stresses being managed by GPs in their daily interactions with patients, and it was here that I became aware of, and interested in, the work of the Hungarian psychoanalyst Michael Balint.

    Now an accredited Balint group leader, I co-lead an established GP Balint Group in Brockley SE4 and am involved in the early implementation of Balint Groups for medical students at St George's University of London Medical School in south London.
