What I Do

Based in Portishead, North Somerset, I offer systemic family psychotherapy to individuals, couples and families.

My approach uses the experiences of self and other to co-create understandings and meanings. I focuss on how we can bring about change, for ourselves and others, through the communications we use. Individuals always exist in relationship with others and through our different experiences we create multiple connections, helping us to make sense of our lives. Sometimes we can find it difficult to see a way forward or cannot see the choices we might have. However there are always ways in which to respond and to communicate with others that can create change within relationships. Talking with someone else can help bring an element of difference to a problem situation so that new ways of being and interacting with others may be discovered.

I work with individuals, couples or families and focus on relationships.

I work with children within their families.

I can help with:

  • relationships
  • bereavement and loss
  • abuse
  • gender and identity
  • work-related problems
  • anxiety
  • depression
  • whole life-cycle
