What I Do

At the present time I am meeting with people online and am also beginning to see people in person again. I can be contacted by email or phone to make appointments.

I offer systemic psychotherapy to individuals, couples or families and see children and young people under eighteen with their parents.

My approach uses the experiences of self and other to co-create understanding and meaning. I focus on how we can bring about change, for ourselves and others, through communication. Individuals exist in relationship with others and different experiences create multiple connections and meanings but often it can be difficult to make sense of our lives. We may not see the choices we have made or could have. Talking can help bring an element of change or difference to a problem situation, so that new ways of interacting with others may be explored. Sometimes our family stories can be seen as difficult but they can also be a source of inspiration to find a way forward in our lives. Talking with someone else can enable new reflections and conversations around how we manage our relationships.

I use narrative, discursive and solution focussed approaches. I have therapeutic experience over many years and have have my own private practice for five years.

  • relationships
  • family problems
  • bullying
  • bereavement
  • abuse
  • gender and identity
  • work-related problems

  • whole life-cycle
