About me and my therapy practice
I am an experienced Family Psychotherapist and counsellor offering work with individuals, couples and families. I work with children, young people and adults. I also offer supervision to other professionals.
I am a BACP accredited counsellor and a UKCP registered Systemic Family Psychotherapist and a Systemic Supervisor. I am based in Sheringham and currently offer sessions by zoom or face to face sessions.
I have worked in both statutory mental health services and the voluntary sector (as a paid professional) with individuals and families with issues including loss, depression, anxiety, trauma and abuse.
I have been a trainer in Systemic Practice over 6 years and have offered supervision to Systemic Psychotherapists, Systemic practitioners and trainees, Counsellors and those working in Social Care.
I have worked with children and young people for over 30 years. This has strengthened my belief in the importance of ensuring that timely and appropriate therapeutic help is available for everyone. My dual training means I can offer therapy with individuals, or with couples and families. I am experienced in working with all ages across the life cycle.
I have a particular interest in working with issues of parental distress and emotional difficulty (“mental health”) (from both parent and child perspective), loss, separation, self-harm and those who have experienced childhood abuse, violence or bullying. These experiences can mean people feel despair and shame which may drive them to self-harm or suicidal thoughts. Talking to someone can help to understand these feelings and to feel less isolated.
Some groups of individuals experience disadvantage or oppression, for example those in care, those living with limited resources or those experiencing racism. These differences often influence the choices people have and how they expect to be understood. I have experience and training in working with those who have diverse gender identities which means that I try to approach all individuals in an open way, being interested in how individuals define themselves. When someone seeks therapy they need to trust that they will be treated respectfully by someone who has examined their own beliefs and assumptions.
