About me and my therapy practice
I am a systemic family therapist, working with complex family dynamics and the emotional challenges they pose. I particularly enjoy working on stepfamily issues.
I am trained in Psychosynthesis and Systemic Family Therapy/Constellations.
I use my extensive training and life experience to work with individuals, and couples, helping them see a bigger picture and become better equipped to deal with their past, present and future.
I work from my home in Camden Town, London, as well as online (Zoom or Facetime).
I was born in London and originally worked as a theatrical agent, representing actors, directors and choreographers.
I retrained as a therapist in the 1990s, and have worked in counselling and therapy ever since. For some of this time I worked as the Training and Development Manager for a large National Parenting Organisation.
I have been part of a stepfamily for more than 30 years and particularly enjoy working on stepfamily issues with individuals and couples. I continue exploring these issues with a small charity, StepIn ASAP, which works with anyone in a complicated contemporary family situation.
Being part of a stepfamily has been an education in itself, providing opportunities and resources that help me deepen my understanding of the dynamics of family life, which in turn goes on to inform my work.
I'm also interested in supporting people as they move out of the child-rearing part of their lives and are interested in looking at later-stage issues.
I work both online and from my home in Camden Town, London. It is five minutes walk from both Camden Town and Mornington Crescent tubes.
Sessions are one-hour long and are offered on a weekly basis. They can be either long or short term, which can be decided at our initial meeting and reviewed as we start to work.
There are many schools of thought in counselling and therapy. I bring together my life experience and training in Psychosynthesis and Systemic Family Therapy.
I offer a safe and confidential space in which to shine a light on areas that need greater understanding, enabling my clients to reach their full potential, either professionally, personally, or both.
The therapeutic work is carried out in a non-judgmental way. Together we create a trusting relationship in which my clients feel accepted and understood, and can grow and develop into the people they deserve to be.
Together we may look at past, present and future to bring about clarity, resolution and direction.
My first session
In my work I draw on two main schools of thought: Psychosynthesis and Systemic Family Therapy.
A course of counselling can be brief (between 6 and 12 sessions) when a prospective client has identified a specific issue they want to work on.
Counselling sessions can also be open ended, giving clients the time and space they need to look at their lives in more depth.
We can talk about this at the first session, and review things as we progress.
