Practical Parenting Advice / Family Therapy:
I offer evidenced based tried and tested tools that help to make family life happier - less stressful and more enjoyable.
I also specialise in supporting parents where children / teens are difficult to manage, either due to specific conditions (such as ADHD or ASD) or perhaps due to more sensitive or persistent temperaments.
Other issues I work with include working with separated or divorced parents who wish to co-parent more effectively. I also work with families who are all adults to help improve communication by providing a neutral space to discuss difficult issues.
I tend to offer short term work. Sometimes a single session is all that is required. However, I mostly see parents or families for a number of sessions (on average 3 - 6 sessions, sometimes 6-12 sessions). At times, depending on your situation, longer work may be indicated.
Most sessions take place fortnightly, three-weekly, or monthly. I find that intervals between sessions allow time for families to put new ideas into practice.
Supervision. I am a qualifed systemic family therapist, supervisor and trainer. If you are a family therapist, or organisation working with families, and would like to discuss systemic reflective supervsion, either individually or in groups, please contact me to discuss.
