About me

Thank you for your interest in my profile. Here is some more information which I hope will help you in your search for a suitable therapist. I welcome enquiries or questions as this often helps people make more informed decisions and provides valuable feedback about what people are searching for. Sometimes though an initial face to face meeting and trusting your intuition about a therapist is the best evidence for a final decision.

I have worked as a Family and Systemic Psychotherapist (Family Therapist) in the NHS for 15 years and as Head of Family Psychotherapy. I hold a BSc in Psychology and MA in Family Psychotherapy

Fully qualified and UKCP registered as a Family and Systemic Psychotherapy, my general interests concern people's relationship dilemmas or difficulties.  Uncovering strengths and possible resources within and surrounding us as well as developing new ways of thinking can be useful to better manage or change difficulties.

I have spent many years working closely with young people and adults, to better understand in more detail any problems, people's abilities, their family and relationship picture and what has been tried. After such a process a more tailored and effective change or adjustment is likely.

Difficulties like anxiety, depression, family or personal relationship problems and longer term traumas such as surviving sexual physical abuse or neglect are areas in which I have substantial experience.  I have continued to develop special areas of interest. Currently, these include working with families with adult children where there are problems that damage or constrain developing healthy relationships. Another special interest is in the parenting relationship when couples with children are considering whether or not to stay together.

I offer therapy to families, couples, parents, friends and individuals depending on what people think might be better for them.

Finally, I provide specialist and qualified professional supervision, group and team consultation and hold a University Post Graduate Qualification in Supervision and Consultation.

I hope this helps you decide which of the registered counsellors or therapists you may consider talking to as a next step.

Although my phone is often diverted to voicemail I listen on weekdays daily and try to respond within 2 working days (as I do my email) so please contact me if you think I could be of further help in your search.

Training, qualifications & experience

BSc Psychology

Masters Degree in Social Work

MA Degree Family and Systemic Psychotherapy (Tavistock Clinic London)

Post Graduate Qualification in Supervision and Consultation

Trainings and experience covering over 30 years with children, parents and families in NHS and Local Authority specialist teams has helped me develop a high degree of expertise and knowledge.

Close working within NHS multidisciplinary specialist child and adolescent mental health teams including joint leadership of an Eating Disorders Team and working with survivors of abuse/harm have been my primary professional focus over the last few years.

I have recently retired from the NHS but have been providing a small private Psychotherapy service over the last 10 years. This has often included Marital and Parenting service as well as helping with broader relationship difficulties between adult family members or adult friendships.

Professional supervision and consultation has also been a significant part of my private work where other family psychotherapist or counsellors can access specialist help when working with families or other relationship dilemmas.
