I provide Family and Systemic Therapy, but also draw from Psychological Theories, Social Learning Theory, Cognitive and Behavioural Therapy.
I ensure therapy is tailored to clients' needs and that it becomes a valuable experience for Individuals (children and adults), Couples, Families & Kinship - with any presenting difficulties and diagnosis.
The Family and Systemic approach I use is known for taking into account the influences of the 'context' a person lives in, which means that I believe that our lives, beliefs, behavioural scripts are influenced by the wider social, community and family networks. I therefore support clients in developing their ability to think about how their own age, gender, race, culture, sexuality, education, class and other social differences impact on their life opportunities and positions them in relationships with relatives, friends, partner, work colleagues and in the wider society.
I work on people's strengths and personal resources, focusing on the solutions rather than the problems. It helps people in relationship to have a different kind of conversation, exploring difficult thoughts and situation in a safe way, enabling a different understanding of others’ experience and views. I attempt to allow silenced voices to be heard in such a way clients feel empowered even in daunting situations; feel hopeful for the future; feel contained and able to make wise choices.
