I have spent many years specialising in attachment focused work and research, with a wealth of experience as a Couples Therapist, working with clients and the relational issues they may face. These include dysfunctional patterns of communication, intimacy issues and blocks, sexual addictions and infidelity, cycles of compulsivity or codependence, going through transitions, co-parenting , blended family arrangements, or managing separation and divorce.
I trained as a systemic psychotherapist, specialising in Marriage and Family Therapy (MFT) on the prestigious Counselling Psychology Masters programme at San Diego State University in California, USA. This means I have specifically trained to work with systemic and relational issues, as opposed to many therapists who may simply decide to apply generic psychology training to seeing couples or groups.
I am a fully trained Emotionally Focused Therapist and supervisor, and combine this with a psychobiological approach to couples and family therapy, to facilitate a deeper and more profound sense of attunement. I work with the understanding that:
Whatever difficulties you may be facing, I will work to provide a safe and non-judgemental environment for you to resolve them together, and decide the best way forward. I work with all kinds of couples and families, to establish healthy and self perpetuating cycles of repair, so that clients can move out of anxious or avoidant patterns of misattunment, and towards secure and healthy coregulation .
