My Approach

My approach is active (questions/conversation, story telling, doing things, and discussion) and collaborative (we'll work together to help you find your way through the complexities you're living with). I am a family therapist, and work with individuals, couples and families. You can read more about my approach on my website:

About Me

I am a qualified systemic psychotherapist/family therapist. This means I am a member of the UKCP College for Family, Couple and Systemic Therapy, and am considered to be a highly trained therapist.

I'm also an active research psychologist, and am a professor at the University of Stirling.

I specialise in therapy with individuals, couples and families who are affected by serious ill health, including cancer, dementia, palliative care and bereavement.

I am currently only offering online therapy. This is via zoom so you can join from where it is convenient to you.
