EXPERIENCE

I am an experienced relationship therapist at Relate, and I also work with private clients.  I have over 15 years of specialised experience of working with both couples and individuals.  I have also trained with the Tavistock Centre to work with couples affected by depression/anxiety, and have previously worked with families affected by a loved ones addiction to drugs or alcohol.


As an integrative therapist I make use of a wide variety of different elements from many types of therapies, which include psychodynamic, person-centred, systemic, cognitive behavioural and solution focused brief therapy, all of which allow me to be flexible and tailor my approach to the needs and personal circumstances of every client. 


I regularly work with clients to help them make sense of a wide variety of issues such as addiction, mental health issues, managing conflict, trauma, separation/divorce, infidelity, bereavement, and I have specialist training in working with couples affected by Aspergers/Autism.
