A PSYCHOTHERAPIST accused of a series of sexual assaults against eight women denied two more offences when he appeared at court.

Dr Christopher Allison, 59, of Hall Lane, Risby, near Bury St Edmunds, pleaded not guilty to two more offences of sexual assault after denying 19 others at a previous hearing.

Allison is accused of seven offences of rape, one of attempted rape and 13 of indecent assault.

The offences date back to the 1980s and are alleged to have taken place in Canterbury, Kent, Oxford and more recently in Basingstoke, Hants.

The two new charges of indecent assault, between January 1982 and March 1988, bring the total to 21 charges against eight women.

The married doctor is alleged to have committed four rapes in Canterbury between January 12, 1982 and December 1, 1987.

He is accused of three more charges of rape in Oxford between May 1, 1982, and December 1987.

The attempted rape is alleged to have happened in Basingstoke between January 1994 and January 1999.

Allison, formerly of Skippets Lane West, Basingstoke, is further accused of six indecent assaults in Canterbury between 1985 and 1988 and five indecent assaults in Basingstoke between 1985 and 1999.

The psychotherapist was granted bail on condition he surrenders his passport and does not contact or interfere with any prosecution witnesses.

He must also report into the police station at Bury St Edmunds every day.

The case was adjourned until February 22 for another hearing and the trial date has been set for May 6.
