My Approach

I work with integrity, warmth and curiosity. I support people to understand patterns of relating that no longer serve them; to interrupt stuck patterns, and to have some of the more difficult but necessary conversations within a safe space. I work from a narrative approach, considering the problem as the problem rather than a person as the problem. I honour each person's narrative whilst paying attention to the similarities and differences between people and how they influence their relationships and understanding.

I will work with you and your family/partner, at your pace, to explore symptoms that may have emerged and develop new ways of understanding and communicating to promote positive change in your relationships.

About Me

I have had the privilege of working with children, families, couples and individuals with a range of complex presenting problems for over 17 years.

My experience includes working with children, couples and families as a social worker in Australia and the UK, in CAMHs (NHS) and with in special needs schools, particularly those for children who have experienced adversity within the education system and/or have been at risk of school exclusion.

I have experience of working with: ADHD, ASD, anxiety, stress, school refusal, relationship difficulties, self-harming behaviors, gender identity, adoption, depression, eating related problems and changes to the family structure through family life cycle events which have resulted in difficulties in communication and relational difficulties.

As a person who is also part of a family, I understand the complexities families can bring. My personal and professional experience led me to wanting to support families to navigate some of the more difficult conversations within a safe space; to understand the similarities and differences between them and to explore values and beliefs which inform their ways of relating, helping them to find new ways of communicating and promote positive change.
