About me

I am a qualified Systemic Psychotherapist, registered with UK Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP*), Association of Family Therapy (AFT), and the States of Jersey. I have an MSc in Family Therapy from Southampton University. I am a wife, Mother, and Step-Mother, I have worked in Jersey and abroad including five years with the British Forces in Germany and Hong Kong.

I welcome diversity in my practice, working with the LGBTQ community.

I specialise in relationships, including those within families, between siblings, friendships and work colleagues that cause unhappiness, anxiety or depression. I am also happy to see people with health concerns or disabilities. I have a background in Nursing and Health Visiting and was an approved trainer with the Alzheimer's Society. I am aware of the challenges within a relationship caused by the introduction of children and/or step-children and times of transition.

Some people enter therapy after a traumatic event or during periods of transition in relationships such as marriage, childbirth separation divorce loss of job, retirement or bereavement.

In systemic thinking, relationships are the prime focus since all of our social lives, such as our personality, are seen to be co-created through conversations and communication processes with other people. And, since cultural and societal values are translated through the family (or an equivalent) throughout our most impressionable years, these relationships and stories are seen as powerfully influential; and systemic therapists are fascinated by these unique stories. However, often what is a normal (albeit complex) transition in a family creates challenges, which can but need not have long-term repercussions.Talking with someone who maybe able to help you see things differently often helps
