I am a qualified Systemic Psychotherapist, registered with UK Council of Psychotherapy (UKCP*), Association of Family Therapy (AFT), and the States of Jersey. I have an MSc in Family Therapy from Southampton University. I am a wife, Mother, and Step-Mother, I have worked in Jersey and abroad including five years with the British Forces in Germany and Hong Kong.
I welcome diversity in my practice, working with the LGBTQ community.
I specialise in relationships, including those within families, between siblings, friendships and work colleagues that cause unhappiness, anxiety or depression. I am also happy to see people with health concerns or disabilities. I have a background in Nursing and Health Visiting and was an approved trainer with the Alzheimer's Society. I am aware of the challenges within a relationship caused by the introduction of children and/or step-children and times of transition.
To remain registered as a psychotherapist I must undertake continual professional development and supervision both of which I am scrupulous in keeping up to date with.
I am aware of the healing effect of nature on the spirit and I am able to offer sessions, in good weather, outside in a peaceful meadow. Joined if you wish by my dog and cat.
Most of my therapy is face to face but I am able to offer online therapy if being in your own space helps you to feel more confident
As a Family Therapist/psychotherapist I am able to see individuals or families or whoever the client feels is of importance to them.
Sessions last for approximately one hour and there is no upper limit to the number of sessions although the average is between 4 and 6.
I see clients on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday's either at my Sion address or online via Video Conferencing.
The first session is an assessment where we decide together if this is a useful way of working for you and if not I may be able to suggest a more suitable route to follow.

How it works
I am an experienced, Accredited Practitioner, and a member of two professional organisations that work to a strict code of ethics. The work we do together will be about facilitating you to find the right solutions for yourself rather than me telling you what to do. In this way you become empowered to make the decisions which feel right for you.
Confidentiality is maintained in all but the most exceptional of circumstances and is an essential part of the therapeutic process. Before your first consultation begins you will be asked to sign a 'Statement of Agreement' concerning the terms of confidentiality. No information either verbal or written will be disclosed to a third party without your written consent.
The only circumstance under which your confidentiality may be breached is when there is an immediate perceived risk of harm to yourself or anyone else. All psychotherapists are required to have a supervisor who monitors the quality of their work. The process of supervision is conducted in a way that ensures client anonymity and thus their confidentiality.
Duration of sessions and charges
Sessions last up to one hour for which there is a standard charge of £75. This needs to be paid on the day of your consultation, by either direct bank transfer, cheque or cash. If you are medically insured, I still take payments in the usual way but give you receipts to claim back expenses through your insurers.
