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 have been offering work in this area for over 13 years, a skill that I acquired through working initially via Link Barnados. Since then, I have been supporting families around attachment applying the methods from DDP and Theraplay to support increased attachment.
I offer an attachment informed and cognitive behavioural integrated approach that provides a structured platform to understanding the issues that couples face and weave in further attachment understanding to couples.
I have developed an understanding of the complexity of disordered eating in the last 10 years and have had good outcomes for children and families. I am a good option where the FEDS waiting list is too long.
Having developed a real understanding of trauma, EMDR has proved itself repeatedly to support with a variety of challenges.
I have been offering supervision for 5 years specifically to therapists working with young people and children. I offer a creative approach to the work and support therapists through the accreditation process.
