My Approach

I am a senior systemic couple and family therapist currently working both in the NHS and privately. I have over twenty years experience which allows me to draw on a wide ange of approaches to help families communicate more easily and more compassionately.

I promote a collaborative and respectful environment which helps families listen and talk together in order to faciliate more understanding. Through better understanding and empathy a family or couple can work together to begin the process of change.

About Me

I am a senior specialist systemic therapist who works and teaches at the Tavistock , which is world-renowned for the treatment of children with emotional and behavioural difficulties as well as a prestigious training institution .
I have twenty years experience of working in a variety of settings with children, families and couples.

I have a special interest in working with couples and with LGBT families and young people and have additional trainings in supervision and mentalzation- based family therapy.

  • Children and young people
  • Couples
  • Families
  • Individuals

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 twenty years experience of working with couples. This work covers a wide range of difficulties including depression, communication difficulties and the experience of managing after a partner has had an affair.
I help partners once they have made the difficult decision to separate think together about how to manage this painful process, including how to still co parent in the children's best interests.
I am lesbian mother and family therapist with a special interest in working sensitively with diversity and difference.
