I am a Family Psychotherapist which means I work with families, individuals, and people in close relationships (including couples) who are experiencing a range of problems including difficulties with parenting, divorce/ separation, and coping with challenging childhood and adolescent behaviours. Family Therapy helps family members to better communicate with one another, to understand each other's perspectives, to reduce distress and suffering, and where applicable, to resolve conflict.
I have supported people experiencing relationship and mental health difficulties for over 14 years. I have specific experience in the fields of adult mental health and addiction, and CAMHS (Child & Adolescent Mental Health Services). I work for an NHS CAMH service in London, specialising in neuro-developmental conditions (e.g. ADHD and Autism). I do not currently offer private appointments.
I hold Masters qualifications in both Clinical Psychology and Family & Systemic Psychotherapy and am registered with AFT (Association of Systemic & Family Therapy) and the UKCP.
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.
