About Me

Until taking early retirement in 2015, I was employed by the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust as a systemic psychotherapist (family therapist) and have over 35 years’ experience of working with individuals, couples, families, schools and professional networks. Alongside my independent practice, I then worked as a Professional Adviser for Young Minds, the child and adolescent mental health charity, providing phone consultations to over a thousand parents and carers throughout the UK where there were family members of concern.

As well as meeting face to face, since the onset of COVID, I have found that much useful work may be undertaken online. I am available to undertake both ongoing and one-off Zoom/telephone therapy and consultations. New opportunities have arisen. For instance, I have worked with an adult child and their parent who were living on different continents and with couples living abroad. Through negotiation, I am also available to undertake home visits where I will meet with family members where they live.

A specialist area that may not be comfortably worked with by some other therapists includes the wide range of complex or special needs (including autism, other issues relating to neurodiversity, physical and learning disabilities). This may include providing therapeutic support to parents, carers, siblings and other family members living with complex needs; addressing issues that arise within the wider support network; or education-, school- and work-based difficulties; and working cross-culturally. I have, for instance, had many years of experience of working with those from Muslim; African-Caribbean and African backgrounds.

I hope to work in a non-judgmental way, in equal partnership with clients to draw out their strengths and resilience in the face of often adverse and unfair experiences. Whilst acknowledging my experience and expertise, I try not to tell clients what they 'must' or 'should' do unless this is specifically requested. You are the expert on your own life and are the best judge of what is appropriate, realistic or manageable.

Fees are negotiable.
