I am a UKCP registered Systemic psychotherapist, trained at the Tavistock Clinic with a background in Mental Health nursing for which I trained at Bethlam Royal & Maudsley Hospital. I have over 30 years experience in family therapy, couple therapy and individual psychotherapy, with a particular focus on managing mental health problems in families, eating disorders, anxiety, depression, trauma, self harm and work related stress.
I use a therapeutic approach which is systemic, working with clients within the context of their relationships, attachment patterns, belief systems and interactions.
My practice involves supporting individuals, couples and families to negotiate trauma and difficulties, address mental health problems, manage change and strengthen relationships by facilitating a safe space to think about challenging issues, understand one another’s perspectives and problems and renegotiate relationships.
I have significant experience in working with couples of mixed cultural heritage.
I provide a therapeutic space and support which allows individuals to gain insight, increase self-awareness, acquire self-care skills and grow resilience. I facilitate a safe context in which clients can express and explore difficult thoughts and emotions safely and build on strengths to create beneficial changes in their lives.
