My Approach

I am a Family and Systemic Psychotherapist currently working privately with individuals, couples and families. I have experience of working with issues of self harm, abuse, early trauma, relationship difficulties, identity including sexuality and gender identity. However everybody's experience is different, and being listened to and understood is I believe most important. I attempt as a therapist to be open to what people bring and to be transparent in the way that I work.

About Me

I have worked with children, young people and their families for over 30 years in both the statutory and non statutory sector.
I believe it is important to think about what someone wants from therapy and to work together to overcome difficulties and acknowledge strengths. Family and close relationships are the most important and in some ways perhaps the most difficult aspects of our lives and systemic therapy with individuals, couples and families can help people find a way forward. I also value my training and work as a counsellor with individuals to help people make sense of difficult experiences, to process difficult emotions, sometimes relating to childhood experiences, and to feel more in control of their lives.
I am also a registered systemic supervisor.

I work with

  • 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 worked with clients who have been affected in many ways by their experiences of different kinds of abuse. I have witnessed how it is possible to move beyond for example self-blame and shame to wider and more creative ideas of self. This may take time and layers of individual and painful feelings perhaps be expressed and listened to before this.
Loss of many kinds (close relationships, migration, traumatic experiences) can deeply affect us as human beings. We don't always have the time we need to understand what these losses might mean for us as we may be too busy surviving or feel that we should "get over it".
As a Systemic Psychotherapist I believe these form the context for our most important experiences, whether working with individuals, couples or families. i have worked as a Family Therapist for 13 years and have experience, training and interest in working with difficulties and strengths in relationships. These can be couples, friends, parents, children of all ages, siblings, colleagues, fellow students etc.
I have worked with young people and adults who identify as non-binary or trans over 30 years. I have completed a training with Gendered Intelligence and am on their directory of therapists and counsellors. I have found this work both challenging of my own assumptions and identity and also liberating from narrow social expectations.
Trauma is a much used word which covers a wide range of experiences. Safety is important in the therapeutic relationship. A safe place to begin to make sense, find ways of managing and possibly to reconnect with what went before.
