Relationships and a sense of connection are central to our lives. These relationships include the way we relate to ourselves, the people close to us, our communities and the world around us.
Systemic Family and Couple Psychotherapy may be used to address any difficulties in relationships. These might be between parents and children, siblings and family members who find themselves in any situation that causes stress, conflict, anger, confusion or sadness.
These difficulties might also occur in a couple relationship and can create a great deal of stress. Couples might come to therapy because they are struggling to communicate, considering divorce or separation, one or both people have had an affair, they are having to cope with illness in the partnership or of parents or children.
I can work with you to understand the interactions you have developed within these relationships that may have become unhelpful and we can hopefully work towards new ways of communicating that support more satisfying and connected experiences of these relationships.
I have worked in the NHS child and adolescent mental health services for over a decade and have experience working with families where there is a child with mental health problems or long term physical health conditions. I have worked with couples in this setting addressing some of the challenges inherent in looking after children with mental or physical health difficulties but also where there is mental or physical health difficulty in the couple relationship.
I like to work with all the people involved in the relationship but can offer individual sessions as part of the work. I work in a relational, dynamic and creative way with an emphasis on strength, kindness and compassion.
