Ian Simpson, Psychotherapist & Group Analyst, Number 42
Job title
Psychotherapist & Group Analyst

I trained as a group analyst and cognitive analytic therapist. I was a consultant adult psychotherapist in the NHS and head of the psychotherapy service at a major London teaching hospital for 20 years. I retired from the NHS 5 years ago and now have a small private practice at Number 42 (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings).

I have a long experience of working with groups and individuals (long and short-term). I also undertake organisational consultancy, reflective practice group work with staff teams and group supervision for psychotherapists and other mental health/social care professionals. I am interested in group dynamics, containment and contextual safety in the workplace and have contributed several book chapters and papers on the understanding and application of these in practice.
