About me

Hello,

Thank you for taking time to look at my profile :).

Here are the 3 areas in which I work, and can offer help to you;

  • I specialise in Relationship Counselling; which means that I have expertise and experience in working with individuals, couples, families and multi-family groups.
  • I also provide Systemic supervision to CYP Systemic & Family Practitioners
  • In addition to this, I offer Systemic (relational) consultation and supervision to teams to promote greater cohesion and resilience.

I would be very happy to discuss more about what I offer and how I can help if you contact me with your questions and thoughts. I offer a free initial telephone consultation to see if the sort of therapy that I offer might be useful to you. After that, I offer a reduced rate for our first meeting too.

So here's a little about my experience;

I have worked therapeutically with individuals, couples, families and young people since 2004, in a variety of settings, including inpatient and outpatient services in the NHS and private sector.

People have come to me for help with a variety of issues. Some examples are grief, loss, anxiety, depression, (un)employment pressures, affairs, and sexuality. I have worked with families in which a child has a life-limiting or life-threatening condition, and where parents and grandparents have experienced the loss of a child. I have a good understanding of and have worked with, a range of learning disabilities.

I have worked with people who have eating disorders, in the health sector since 2010, and currently work with young people and their families who have diagnoses of anorexia, bulimia and ARFED in the NHS. I also provide systemic supervision and consultation in this role, to individuals and teams of professionals, who are trained in different specialisms.

I am a fully qualified Systemic, Family and Couples Psychotherapist, registered with UKCP (United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy) and am a member of AFT (Association of Family Therapy).

Further information

A bit about systemic ways of working....

Systemic and Family Therapists undergo a further 4 years of training, after qualifying in their core profession. We are trained to work with a variety of issues - some of these can easily be seen as shared between people, such as couple wanting therapy to decide if they should stay together, or how to manage intimacy struggles or unfulfilled hopes and dreams. Equally family arguments (between siblings, grandparents, parents, in-laws) can lead to a lot of distress. Discussing these things safely, either alone or together, is something that a Family Therapist has the skill set to help with!

Equally, working with a family can be really useful when one person in that family has been given a diagnosis, such as depression, or anxiety, or dementia. This is because we understand that these struggles can effect everyone in families. So we can see people individually, or together, or a mixture of the two. This sort of therapy can be helpful for families that want to build closer, happier relationships and manage change, loss and separation by supporting one another better. You can be helped towards identifying your strengths and work towards positive change.

Please do not hesitate to contact me, should you have any further questions or curiosities.
