Systemic, narrative and ecologically inspired approahes
I work independently, in central Somerset, providing a systemic psychotherapy service to individuals, couples and families experiencing relational and personal identity challenges, wishing to consider new possibilities. I work face-to-face whenever possible. I also offer co-work with a highly experienced female colleague - an EMDR trained clinical psychologist - when appropriate, enabling broader perspectives to be explored in depth.
My background includes three decades of delivering a family therapy service and training within CAMHS settings. I have developed valued specialisms in the field of post-adoption work, multiple trauma as a consequence of adverse childhood experiences, adolescent identity formation, couples-focused presentations, adult sibling and issues unique to ageing.
I welcome self-referrals and receive enquiries from a range of third parties.
I offer systemic supervision to students and colleagues.
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.
