Honor Oak Wellness Rooms
82 Brockley Rise
The Sunflower Centre
I offer short term systemic psychotherapy (for individuals), family therapy (for couples, separated couples and families), and parent advice sessions (practical advice for dealing with childhood issues and problems in adolescence). The first appointment is a consultation to decide if further work would be helpful.
I provide a safe and confidential place to explore issues which affect the way you feel about yourself and your relationships. The sessions allow you a space to explore and reflect upon issues, in a supportive and non-judgmental environment.
Training, qualifications & experience
I have worked for many years in the NHS offering positive parenting classes, parenting advice as well as family therapy.
I also offer EMDR (eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing) therapy to parents where there is a history of trauma that intrudes on the parent - child relationship.
In some situations I will offer NVR (Non-violent resistance) therapy where there are more serious relationship issues between parent and child / young person.
I hold a degree in Social Science and a Masters degree in Systemic Family Therapy gained at the Institute of Family Therapy (IFT) in 2002.
I also hold a post-graduate diploma in Systemic Training & Supervision (2008).

Some concessions available for low income individuals / families
My aim is to work with you to find solutions to family problems. However, I also take care to find strengths and to notice things that people are already doing well, but which may not have noticed due to the stress of managing the problem.
I specialise in working with parents who encounter problems with their children in all stages of childhood.
- under 5's or pre-school children
- primary school aged children (5-10)
- secondary school aged children 11+
