About Me

I am a family and systemic psychotherapist and systemic supervisor, who initially trained at the Cardiff Family Institute. I practise online and pre-covid I saw people face-to-face in the Manchester area . I work with families, couples and individuals. I have special interests in issues of middle and later life; people living with chronic illness (including dementia); relationships between parents and adult children; bereavement and loss.

I work with

  • 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.

This is a long-standing area of interest. Before I left the NHS, I worked for some years in older adult mental health so I have experience in working with families where there are issues relating to physical health and/or mental health, including dementia conditions.
I undertook extra training in working online with Online Counselling Services & Training in 2020. I usually see people on zoom.
As a systemic psychotherapist I work with individuals, couples and families. I have undertaken training in non-violent resistance and in emotionally focused couple therapy.
I am a registered (and practising) systemic supervisor. I completed the Birmingham Advanced Diploma in Systemic Supervision in Birmingham in 2015-2016.
I have undertaken training in working with gender variance.
