I am a thoughtful, compassionate and non-judgemental therapist with over 15 years of clinical experience. In addition to my NHS work, I currently provide therapy online or in person in South West London. I can help with a wide range of difficulties; and I have a particular interest in working with couples and with those who identify as LGBTQIA+.

Relationships can provide us with support and be the source of stress. That's why they're at the centre of systemic psychotherapy. I meet with people to think about the significant relationships in their lives; and the changes they want to make in these relationships. It’s important that you come to therapy feeling confident that you won’t be judged and that your strengths will be recognised. My role is to provide a safe and supportive therapeutic space, where people can explore their worries and problems, and find ways to move forward with their lives. If requested, I can share strategies that others have found helpful.

I originally trained as a social worker in Trinity College Dublin, and have subsequently worked in health services and local authorities in the UK and Ireland. I completed a Masters in Psychoanalytic & Systemic Therapeutic Approaches in the Tavistock & Portman Clinic, followed by a Masters in Family Therapy at Kings College London. I am currently employed in the NHS as a senior family therapist, where I undertake therapy, consultation and teaching. I have additional training in a variety of approaches to parenting, conflict resolution and emotional regulation.
