My Approach

Systemic psychotherapy is an approach that does not see the individual as existing in isolation but rather part of the systems around them. Any difficulties that occur are explored within this framework as are opportunities for change.

A lot of systemic psychotherapists work primarily as family therapists, engaging with multiple members of a family in looking for and taking opportunities for change within this system. Whilst this is part of what I do, I understand that it isn’t always possible to get everyone together and believe that working with any part of a system can afford opportunities for exploration and change hence also working with individuals, couples, families and organisations.

My journey to being a systemic psychotherapist has also included training and experience (but not qualification) of cognitive behavioural therapy, group analysis, mentalisation based therapy and psychodynamically informed environments. This all contributes to the therapist I am today.

About Me

I am a family and systemic psychotherapist working independently. I am passionate about relationships of all kinds. Relationships between, for example; individuals, families, communities and organisations and all that creates the world around these entities; love, grief, education, authority, culture, spirituality, substances, health, trauma to name just a few.

For the last 30 years I have worked extensively in mental health and criminal justice, both in their own right and when, as they often do, intersect. I strive to offer an authentic approach that can both challenge and nurture those I am privileged to have the opportunity to work with. My experience has been with a range of different client groups, primarily children, adolescents, adults and families but also with couples, older adults and organisations.

I also very much enjoy working with students of psychotherapy and counselling facilitating any requirement or desire for personal therapy to support the journey to qualification. Please contact me to negotiate a reduced fee if this applies to you.
