With the use of my systemic tools, I am interested in exploring people’s experiences at the levels of feeling, meaning and action to begin to make sense of people’s problems in the context of the significant relationships around them. By being aware of these, we can explore new alternatives to change patterns of behaviour/experiences.
By talking together, we can create some reflective space to make sense of why you feel the way you do and what we can do to begin to create a difference.
I offer a transparent approach sharing my hypotheses with you to help bring about difference and change, challenging the here and now and making way for new possibilities. Systemic therapy is a brief therapeutic approach, very much working in the here and now and only delving into the past to make sense of things in the current day where needed.
My Fees: Systemic Therapy is brief therapy and therefore clients do find changes fast. I usually see clients for 8 one hour sessions weekly/fortnightly and this is usually enough for people to move on in their lives. My fees are competitive.
Working with couples is something I have years of experience in and am passionate about doing. I take a non-blaming, neutral approach and am here to facilitate change and to not pass judgement. I have been specialising in this area for the last few years and feel that my systemic skills compliment this work perfectly.
When working with couples I am interested to explore relationship patterns to make sense of why couples are experiencing problems. These patterns are very compelling and can be hard to break, but with my help I believe that this is always possible and change does happen. I encourage clients to take risks and leaps of faith to change relationship patterns and to create positive change. Creating reflective space and making sense of your own positions in a relationship can develop new possibilities.

Family & Children
I have experience working with children and families, using a variety of creative and playful approaches. You will see that few therapists are specifically trained and experienced to do this work and with nearly 10 years experience in this field, I urge you to get in touch with me.
I take a non-blaming, neutral approach and am interested in how the problem has manifested itself and how it affects the individual and the family relationship patterns. I take a systemic view, looking at when it started, how things have changed over time and exploring ways of how it could improve in the context of the whole system.

Divorce & Mediation
I also specialise in working with people going through the divorce/separation process.
I carry out mediation with clients (and fellow colleagues) to help them seek resolution in areas such as child contact, how to talk to their children about the change, living arrangements, finances and more. Clients often struggle to communicate effectively through this stressful time, to help to find sustainable solutions and to help stop them entering negative communication patterns.
