Death of Derek Love

Death of Derek Love

We were sad to hear that Derek Love died on Tuesday 19th March 2019. Derek was a group analyst who worked at WPF Therapy for many years including setting up the Young Person’s Service in the 1980’s in Chelsea Town Hall. Derek ran therapy groups and worked as a counsellor in the WPF Therapy Clinic as well as running experiential groups for many years for trainees on the once weekly psychodynamic psychotherapy training and the introductory courses.  He was a seminar leader and a supervisor on the group training at WPF Therapy and also had a private practice.

We hope that you will join us in thinking of his family at this time.
