My Approach

System Couples and Family Psychotherapy

About Me

I am a Systemic and Family Psychotherapist (UKCP, AFT) with over 13 years of experience working with children, young people and families in a variety of roles. Having trained and practiced as a social worker prior to qualifying as a psychotherapist I bring multi-dimensional perspectives to thinking about families. I currently work for an internationally renowned children and young peoples’ mental health charity, act as a visiting lecturer at UCL, and operate an online private practice for couples and families.

In my private practice I offer short and long-term support for adults, couples, parents and families (not children or adolescents individually).

I am keen to work with all people, whether you need guidance negotiating challenges in your relationships, or are looking for support as you move through life transitions. I have particular interest in working with people looking to adopt, couples experiencing perimenopause or menopause, and LGBT+ families.

My experience spans a range of different settings. At schools I have supported children in social care and also provided key mental health services, working with children and adolescents individually, and also with parents and families. Additionally, I have worked with senior leadership teams within schools to consider the culture of mental health and the whole school approach, and have supported staff through implementation of change. In the NHS I have worked in the Child and Adolescent mental health service (CAMHS) and also an adult family therapy clinic. Additionally, I provide support to Foster Carers and Social Workers to reflect on children who are looked after and their best interest when making life changing decisions.

How to work with me

My process for taking on new clients is to begin with a 20-minute phone call where we can discuss the difficulties you are seeking help with, my approaches to therapy, and whether I am the right psychotherapist for you.

I aim to work with you to create a space that is safe, honest and purposeful.

Currently I am only working online via (no account needed)
