About me

I was the lead for family and systemic psychotherapy in Wolverhampton CAMHS until 2016 when I left the NHS. I have a private practice based in a dedicated room in my home in Shrewsbury.

I work with individuals, couples and families and have a particular interest in working with children, young people and their families.

As a systemic psychotherapist, my practice is based on a relational model of therapy and I use a range of different therapeutic methods (Psychodynamic, CBT, Solution Focused, Mindfulness, Narrative and EMDR) and weave these into an overarching systemic approach.

I registered as a supervisor in 1995 and currently provide individual and group supervision for BACP and UKCP registered psychotherapists. I am a supervisor on the doctoral programme at the University of Bedfordshire.
