About me

Hello, I have worked in the health service for 39 years before going into private practice. During that time I refined my skill set, both as a family therapist and as an expert in complex and challenging children, including those with a learning disability or autism.

I always work collaboratively, seeking to harness the strengths of the family and the individual. I have lots of different ways of working and it is my job to find which way works for you. I am accustomed to working with cases of high complexity, liaising with other professionals, where appropriate and with your permission.
A typical session lasts an hour in an undisturbed and tranquil environment

I have helped families and individuals work towards shared goals to improve their quality of life. I always seek your feedback at the end of every session. I can arrange an initial home visit if this is useful to you, however I believe that therapy requires a safe, detached environment, that I can provide at the North Sands Centre.
It is i think difficult to find the right therapist so i offer a free 30 min consultation so 
Please feel free to email  so we can arrange this and you can find out if i have the right skill set for you. I look forward to being of assistance to you.
