When we feel connected to those close to us we are more able to cope with life’s challenges.
People do not have problems in isolation. They are often created or perpetuated in the way we interact with those important to us. Family therapy views individual’s problems in the context of their relationships.
It is difficult to take the first step to talk to a stranger about something as important as your personal relationships. You may be worried about discussing how you may be getting it wrong with your partner, friends or family members. Or perhaps you are desperately trying to get your partner's attention to find out whether you are important and still matter to one another.
Whatever your individual, family or couple issues we can work together to rediscover your strengths, in a supportive non-judgmental atmosphere, that will enable you to see your situation in a different way. This will help you find the solutions that will work for you.
Family Therapy can be a valuable approach for people of all ages and backgrounds who may be experiencing a variety of difficulties such as:
Child & adolescent behaviour
Parenting issues with all age groups
Behavioural issues in school
Couple or marital difficulties or stress
Separation or divorce
Step-parenting or lone-parenting
Rebuilding relationships following trauma
Helping people recognise their strengths can be a relatively short process, however some difficulties can be more complex and clients may need longer.
Training, qualifications & experience
MA - Marriage and Family Therapy.
BSc - Psychology
I am in private practice, where my focus is working systemically with individuals, couples and families – including children.
As a UKCP accredited Systemic and Family Therapist, a registered BACP member, and being fully endorsed under the Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS), formally known as Criminal Records Bureau (CRB), I have the credentials and training necessary to work with you.
Located at the Banbury Therapy Centre I engage directly with clients. I also contract to Social Services and an Oxfordshire school.
Following an initial assessment session, we will identify the change(s) that you desire and work together to agree to a plan of action, with an approach that meets your needs.
" I help people recognise changes that make a difference."
