• Couples • Families • Individuals • Children and Young Persons • Adults


  • MSc Family Therapy
  • MSc Social Work
  • Diploma in Counselling

I work with all age ranges including children and adolescents, adults, individuals, couples and family groups. I can offer support for issues such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Low self-esteem
  • Self-harm
  • Difficulties in family and couple relationships
  • Parental separation and divorce
  • Loss
  • Neurodevelopmental disorders such as ADHD and ASD
  • School issues such as school refusal, bullying, transitions and academic-related stress
  • Parenting skills for both younger children and adolescents

I draw on many different systemic models when working, favouring a narrative and strengths-based approach.  I always try to work collaboratively and will endeavour to create a safe, therapeutic space where together we can start to think about how you might like things to be different. I can offer both short, and longer-term work, as required.  If young people, particularly adolescents, are not keen to engage in therapy, I am happy to work solely with parents/care givers to think about how you can best support your young person.  
My experience 
I have worked with children, adolescents, individuals and families for the last 30 years in the arenas of education, social services and mental health.  For 16 years I was employed by the NHS in a local Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).  I also have experience of working in a couples’ clinic and in a GP surgery. Before training as a family therapist, I was employed variously as an Education Welfare Officer, a Social Worker and a CAMHS Practitioner.
I have a current enhanced DBS certificate.
