My Approach

Relationships can provide us with support and also lead to stress, conflict and misunderstandings. That's why they're at the centre of systemic psychotherapy. I meet with people to think about the changes they want to see within significant relationships in their lives. It’s important that you come to therapy feeling confident that you won’t be judged and that your strengths will be recognised. My role is to provide a safe and supportive therapeutic space, where people can explore their worries and problems, and find ways to move forward with their lives. I'll sometimes discuss strategies that others have found helpful.

I provide therapy for individuals and couples. I can help with wide range of difficulties, and have a particular interest in working with relationship difficulties and/or with those who identify as LGBTQIA+. If you're looking to speak with a thoughtful therapist to think about your relationships, then please get in touch to arrange an initial consultation.

About Me

I'm a systemic family psychotherapist, originally from Ireland and now based in London. I have over 15 years’ experience working in the public sector in Ireland and the UK. I am currently employed in specialist mental health services in the NHS as a senior family therapist, where I undertake therapy, consultation and teaching. I have additional training in a variety of approaches to parenting, conflict resolution and emotional regulation.

I work with

  • Couples
  • Families
  • Individuals

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.

I can provide therapy for couples wanting to stay in a relationship, and for those wanting to manage the process of separation. Usually individuals will be invited to attend sessions together. The average course of therapy is between 8 to 20 sessions, but can vary greatly depending on the hopes, needs and expectations of each individual.
I facilitate conversations about relationships that are important in people's lives. As well as intimate partner relationships, this might include family relationships or friendships. I can provide individual sessions to think about these dynamics and/or bring people together for sessions.
I have experience of facilitating therapeutic conversations with people who identify as LGBTQIA+. They may wish to explore this through individual or couple therapy; or they might be accessing therapy for a different reason and wanting to feel confident that they will not be judged.
