About

I work intergratively and collaboratively, that is to say I draw on different psychological therapies, including CBT, Narrative and Attachment ideas and techniques, depending on the challenges and stories brought into the therapy room by the client(s). I work within an overarching Systemic framework which pays special attention to supporting individuals, couples and families to find the strengths of their relationships so as to make disturbing symptoms less problematic. It is not just about problems however, Systemic therapy is  built on a bedrock of hope, focusing on resilience and resourcefulness. 
Sometimes life can feel very overwhelming and we can feel stuck with our anger, our unhappiness, our fears and anxieties. We seek reassurance but also new pathways, new stories that will challenge, creating change. I provide a safe and confidential space to explore feelings and behaviours that may be causing you, and those close to you, sadness and conflict
Difficulties in romantic and family relationships can cause anger, distress, resentment and deep unhappiness. Common problems include infidelity, difficulties in co-parenting, ill health and life cycle changes. Therapy can help to find new, kinder and more empathetic ways of relating to each other.
