My Approach

Systemic, narrative and ecologically inspired approahes

About Me

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.

I work with

  • Children and young people
  • Couples
  • Families
  • Individuals
  • Private healthcare referrals

Special Interests

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.

Throughout life, all of us experiences cycles of location, dislocation and relocation. Some of us have smoother journeys than others. I believe that smoother, slower travel makes journeys ultimately much more rewarding. Getting this right for children is crucial, and, as a society a huge price is paid for dysregulated behaviour. Therefore, I believe that by working among families where there have been major disruptions is of great importance and is very rewarding when the stamina of carers is serviced for the benefit of the children they look after.
Every coupling is unique, dynamic and either succeeds in adjusting to change or it withers 'on the vine' as inevitable new challenges emerge. For close-couple relationships to run smoothly, stock needs to be taken. An external consultant with experience and sensitivity can facilitate this very private process if the couple themselves become stuck in the mire of miscommunication.
Whilst we are born, die, make choices and live our lives as individuals it is those that we share our lives with, notably the folk who shape us and look after us who contribute most to who each of us are. It is on this basis that I believe the systemic lens is of overarching importance in psychological wellbeing. Families, however they are described are basic human systems with their myriad relationships, ideas, belief, rituals and secrets.
