About me

Sometimes families can feel overwhelmed, sad and angry, unsure what to do for the best or stuck in patterns of hurtful behaviour.

When that happens we lose connection with those close to us, we lose a sense of being loved and cared for. This has been shown to have huge negative impact on our emotional and mental wellbeing.

I help those in close relationships to understand and support each other better. I aim to create environment where everyone feels safe to talk about difficult thoughts and feelings, understand each other’s views/experiences, appreciate each other’s needs and build on strengths to make useful changes in their relationships and their lives.

In my work I aim not to take sides, blame, or provide simple ‘one size fits all’ answers. I aim to engage people in sharing understandings and views with each other and exploring ways forward that work for them.

Meetings usually last 50 min and it’s important for me to make everyone feel welcome, and to give everyone a chance to contribute to discussions if they wish.

I adapt my ways of working according to everyone’s ages, needs, resources and preferences. Sessions involving children, for example, often include play and drawing. Some people may wish to talk together from the start of therapy sessions, while others may prefer some individual time before deciding if, what and how to share their thoughts and feelings with others. I will discuss with you (usullly at the first session) how you would like to work together. During the first session there will also be opportunities to discuss if Family Therapy is the right approach for you and your family.
