For over 40 years I have been in practice as a Consultant Psychotherapist. Drawing on systemic approaches, and brief solution-oriented therapy and a background in clinical hypnosis, I try and create a relationship in which we can explore creative ways of addressing painful or difficult problems in living. I am passionate about finding useful and more positive frames to increase options and to explore possibilities for change.
My qualifications are BA Psychology, BA (Hons) Psychology, MA Clinical Psychology. I am an HCPC registered Clinical Psychologist and a UK Registered Psychotherapist.
Clinical Supervisor accredited with the UK Association for Family Therapy.
I am an Associate Member of the TAOS Institute.
Senior Lecturer in Psychotherapy at The Family Institute from 1988 – 2019. My specialist teaching subjects in this field were:

- Systemic psychotherapy with individual children and adults.
Award leader for various programmes and contributor to academic design and validation of programmes in psychology, counselling and psychotherapy.
Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.
