PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND

I have a Masters degree in Family Therapy from the University of London and am a registered member of the United Kingdom Council of Psychotherapy. I also have a BA(Hons) and an MA from Cambridge University and a Postgraduate Diploma in Infant Mental Health from the world-renowned Tavistock Clinic in the UK. I have served on the boards of the Institute of Family Therapy and the Tavistock and Portman Mental Health Trust and on the Family Therapy committee of the UKCP. I am also a trained parenting facilitator and have my own experiences of bringing up two children to draw from. Having recently moved to Copenhagen I understand some of the challenges in being an expat; I have previously also lived in a variety of places outside of the UK, including South Africa, where I was born.

As a systemic family psychotherapist, I am trained to work with families, parents, couples and individuals, using a systemic approach. This means exploring the immediate impact of our relationships with each other, as well as taking into account the individual experiences that we have had in the past. As part of my training, I have a diploma in infant mental health and have studied early childhood, including working in the premature baby unit of a London Hospital.

WHAT CAN I HELP YOU WITH?

Working in CAMHS, the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service of the NHS in the UK gave me a lot of experience of working with many of the challenging issues facing families today. In response I have set up parenting programmes that give parents some of the strategies and, more importantly, the time to reflect that they need to get the most out of family life. Bringing up children can pose unexpected stresses on relationships and highlight unanticipated differences in parenting styles that stem from our own experiences as children. Everybody is different and my experience has taught me that each family, couple or individual has a different solution to the emotional and relational problems they are facing. Hopefully, I can help you find yours.
