I qualified as a systemic psychotherapist in 1989 following a psychodynamic training as a social worker in the 1970's. I work with children and young people and I specialised in play for a number of years prior to my psychotherapy training. I use a relational focus and see individuals, couples and families. I provide brief, solution focused or longer term work and have trained to use EMDR.
I am a consultant systemic psychotherapist and supervisor with more than 30 years experience in the NHS working in Child and Adolescent Mental Health.
I am now working independently in a small practice and see individuals, couples and families using a relational focus. I provide brief, solution focused and longer term work. I provide clinical supervision to registered psychotherapists, therapeutic counsellors and psychotherapists in training.
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.
