Systemic Family Psychotherapist
I am a UKCP Accredited Systemic Family Psychotherapist working with families, couples and individuals. I qualified from Leeds University with a Master of Science Degree, with experience in providing exceptional treatment for families, couples and individuals experiencing distress affecting their relationships.I currently work in private practice and have many years of experience working with familiies and young adults.
My style is warm and empathetic, and I feel passionately that all family members, couples and individuals who care for each other can access support to help them understand and express difficult emotions safely and make positive changes in their life.
My approach helps people to better understand each other’s needs, and develop strategies to resolve problems. Family therapy is sensitive to family cultures and beliefs, and respectful of the needs of everyone within the family.
The most common problems I work with are stressful and traumatic life events such as, work and school-related problems, divorce and separation, parent-child conflict and illness or death of a loved one. Many other difficulties can be helped by family therapy, these include ADHD, addictions, depression, fostering, adoption and kinship care needs, and any other conditions that may be having a damaging effect on the family life. This makes family therapy useful for times of crisis and long-standing problems that are stressful on the family unit.
