My Approach

I am a qualified systemic psychotherapist who has been working with children young people and families affected by mental health, emotional and psychological difficulties for over 15 years.

About Me

My background has seen me work within specialist services working with families affected by sexual abuse, domestic violence, torture, mental health difficulties, alcohol and drug difficulties. I have developed my skills and abilities over the years by working across multiple contexts. I teach systemic psychotherapy and have presented workshops on systemic psychotherapy across the UK.

I work with

  • Children and young people
  • Families

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.

Again like the work trauma, mental health is a wide range of difficulties that can affect people of all ages and it is not uncommon for a family to have multiple mental health difficulties affecting members within their family. My initial training was as a mental health nurse before I trained as a family therapist. I have been supporting families with a huge range of mental health difficulties from ASD, ADHD to personality and eating disorders.
I have been working closely with trauma since 2009, trauma is a small word for what is a huge area of practice. Children, young people and families can often have hidden traumas, or trauma in the background that not everyone in the family may know about. Over the years I have develop my practice to support families to manage these areas of "not yet said". I have extensive experience of working with a wide range of trauma experiences including four years of working exclusivley with torture.
