- Family Therapy
Throughout our lives we need to turn to others to help us manage difficult feelings, problems, conflicts and distress. The individuals and families I meet seek out professional support when their experience, skills and solutions no longer seem to work for them. These difficulties are sometimes experienced as: recurring relationship problems; wounding communication patterns; feelings of sadness, anger or despair; or, feeling overwhelmed by everyday life.
My experience may particularly benefit those with symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma or loss. I also have extensive experience of working with clients living with enduring physical or mental health difficulties and with clients where there are issues around identity or trans-cultural trauma.
