Systemic psychotherapist working with individuals, couples and families.
I believe in the recuperative power of all people to respond to life crises and overcome difficulties at every level. My work builds on the natural ability everyone has to rise to challenges even when they seem impossible. The style is friendly and dealing in the here and now - not drawn to the unconscious mind so much as the conscious one, not mystical though sometimes spiritual. I admire the human capability to love and try to follow always the line of appreciative enquiry.
