Alongside my NHS roles I see private clients on Friday's, which is all online work.

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 am experienced in running multi-family therapy for anorexia programmes for young people and their parents both on an inpatient and outpatient basis. I use the Maudsley model in my work with eating disorders.
I am trained and experienced in Attachment Based Family Therapy (ABFT), which focuses on identifying and repairing ruptures in family relationships that have caused families to become distant or fall into conflict they have not been able to resolve.
I work with young people who experience emotional dysregulation and use self-harm and suicide to manage emotional difficulties, this work includes parents and carers where it is helpful. I use systemic practice alongside Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), trauma treatment and Attachment Based Family Therapy in my approach to this work.
I am trained in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy - Prolonged Exposure, which usually accompanies a period of DBT treatment initially.
