As a Systemic Psychotherapist (often called a Family Therapist) I work with individuals, couples and whole families, in fact anyone involved in a relational system. I integrate this with training and experience in trauma and attachment, and skills developed in CBT, DDP, EFT, IFS
I am a qualified Psychotherapist with experience of working with children, adolescents, parents, couples and families in the NHS and Social Care sector, as well as with voluntary organisations for over 18 years. Everyone experiences difficult feelings, problems, conflict and distress in their lives at times. Often these are managed with the skills that people already possess. I usually meet with people when their efforts no longer seem to be working and they can feel overwhelmed by sadness, anger or despair. It may be that they feel unable to move forward in their relationships, and in their lives.
I can provide safety in working together, and with my training and skills and your strengths and resilience we can create new possibilities for positive change.
Like all UKCP registered psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors I can work with a wide range of issues, but here are some areas in which I have a special interest or additional experience.
