About Me

I am a fully qualified and accredited Systemic Family and Couple Psychotherapist (MA) with over 20 years clinical experience working therapeutically with Individuals, Couples and Families, across the age-span, both within the NHS, and via my own Independent Practice.

As a specialist relationship therapist I supports those facing challenges in couple or family relationships. These may include issues related to intimacy and communication, parenting and life transitions, recovery from domestic abuse, trauma or infidelity, or those faced with divorce, separation or bereavement. I also support clients to develop a deeper sense of connection, understanding, and closeness in their relationships, and those seeking confidence to find a new relationship, once one has ended. I work with Couples and Families of all kinds, and am keen to embrace diversity. My practice is strengths and resilience orientated, collaborative, and underpinned by the latest evidence based principles.

I am fully insured to provide a worldwide online service, offering Individual, Couple, Parenting and Family Therapy, in accordance with a bespoke plan based upon an assessment of your specific needs and preferences.

I also accept referrals via Social Care and the Legal System, and offer Mediation, Consultancy, Coaching and Clinical Supervision. Professionals are also welcome to connect with me via LinkedIn.

Feel free to contact me at oxfordfamilytherapy@gmail.com for further information, or to arrange a brief (15 min) introductory zoom/phone call to get to know me a little and to get a sense of what online therapy might feel like.

I have also worked within Paediatric Inpatient Services and Children's Palliative Care. Alongside a clinical role, I have been involved in service development and leadership, as well as providing training, clinical supervision and consultation to allied professionals and agencies.
