About me

I am a Psychotherapist working with families, couples and individuals. I specialise in using video interaction guidance (VIG) to support parents improve their communication with each other and with their children. I especially recommend VIG for parents and babies, where it can make a huge difference to increase parents' confidence, attunement and enhance their pleasure in their baby. The period before and after birth is a crucial time for families to adjust to changes and for babies to develop their basic brain architecture. Supporting attuned communication at this time will make a life-long difference.

Training, qualifications & experience

I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist (UKCP registered), a national video interaction guider, parent infant psychotherapist and senior movement psychotherapist. I have over 30 years experience helping a wide range of clients. I have worked in a refuge for women and children escaping from Domestic Violence, psychiatric institutions, and in a parent infant counselling agency. I have run many groups for parents and babies and developed projects to support professionals and families . I teach and have published as well as edited the book 'Weaving the Cradle'.

Further information

I have founded Babies1st, which aims to support parents and babies especially before and after birth: www.babies1st.net

I offer video interaction guidance, which is an innovative way of supporting relationships between members of a family by filming and then editing out and micro-analysing the very best moments. This method increases parents' confidence and helps improve their relationships with their children of all ages. It is a short term therapeutic method. Families usually attend 3 - 9 sessions.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
