Family and Systemic Psychotherapy is an effective and evidence based intervention, helps people in a close relationship help each other, supports individuals and families to understand each other better, to learn from difficulties and to grow and become a happier and more functional system, capable to support each other.
I am fully qualified Systemic Family and Couples psychotherapist, I finished my Doctoral studies in psychology and philosophy in 2010.
I started working in counselling and psychotherapy more than 15 years now and I had the opportunity to meet and support clients from diverse ethnic, cultural, educational backgrounds.
I work both in NHS Mental Health setting both with adults and children with complex presentation and in private practice offering individual, couple and family psychotherapy.
Systemic theory approaches individuals as member of their families, work groups, neighbourhood and friendships - being part of different systems. We understand that all types of relationships during our experiences, love, friendships, conflict, abandon, attachment, anxiety, all the complexity of human interactions, can affect us and generate a variety of problems, from complex distress to mental health diagnosis.
Family and Couple Systemic Psychotherapy can support clients and families affected by anxiety, abuse, addiction, depression, domestic violence, separation and divorce, self harm and suicidal thoughts, eating disorders, relationship difficulties and distress, parents and children/adolescents conflicts, social anxiety and social difficulties.
