"I have worked for the NHS since 2008 and I work as a family therapist and lead for NVR (non-violent resistance programme) in a Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service. I also co-work with the Tavistock Relationships working with couples using MBT."
I began my therapeutic work in 2003. At first however, I studied the law. It took me time to notice that it was not the most suitable way of life for me, it took more time for me to figure out what a right path may be. However, going through the process of discovery this path has been invaluable.
In my work, I assist clients in their journey of discovery and transformation.
My job is to alleviate a person(s) suffering and pain. Often the pain appears when our current ability to cope with a challenge is exceeded by the intensity/severity/chronicity of our situation.
Feeling overwhelmed cuts us off our own internal resources. My job as a therapist, whether working with individuals, couples, families or groups, is to reconnect you with your own wisdom, experiences, knowledge or skills and based on those build new resources.
I have a versatile set of skills I will be drawing on when working with you.
My background is in psychology (MSc), systemic family psychotherapy (MSc) and EMDR therapy.
I have always been drawn to out of mainstream methods and in my work I combine the best of the two worlds. Therefore, I offer trauma treatment like AIT (Advanced Integrative Therapy) or NLP, Time Line Therapy, Focusing, or Mindfulness for Anxiety and Depression.
I also work with Brief Solution Focused Therapy, Attachment Based Family Therapy (ABFT), Mentalisation Based Therapy (MBT) for Parents, Mentalisation Based Therapy for Children, Non Violent Resistance Programme to support parents of adolescents who are violent or self-destructive.
If you are noticing your relationships have become a source of distress - your relationships with yourself, with your loved ones or family members, friends or co-workers no longer fulfil you, my style of working may help assist you.
In my therapy practice, I have worked with clients experiencing some of the following:
Relationship difficulties: with children, partners, family member; an impact of trauma including intergenerational trauma; depression, anxiety, addiction, bereavement and loss; understanding and supporting families where member(s) present with symptoms of ADHD, ASD, phobias, OCD; self-harm; child on parent violence.
