About me

'When it hurts we return to the banks of certain rivers' - Czeslaw Milosz

Currently I have some limited availability in September 2022 for face to face or virtual sessions - evenings or weekends. 

Are you stuck in unhelpful patterns as an individual, couple, or family, and find yourself returning to 'the banks of certain rivers' that make your life more difficult or painful? In therapy we will work out together what needs to happen for things to change and, often most importantly, what is getting in the way of you making the changes you want or know you need to make. Together we can challenge the old dynamics of being and relating that no longer serve you, and experiment with visiting the banks of new rivers in thought, feeling, and action.

I have extensive experience in the NHS, public, and third sectors supporting adults and young people with their mental health and wellbeing and their relationships. I have highly specialist training in family and systemic psychotherapy, working with individuals, couples, and families, and can offer a flexible approach depending on your need.

If you think from my profile I may be a good fit for you, please get in touch via call or email to arrange an initial free consultation. We will discuss what has brought you to therapy, some of the background to your challenges, and what your aims would be for treatment. If we agree to work together, we will then develop a plan for your support.
