Family and Systemic Psychotherapist
Tell us about your role
Having a psychology background I decided to continue my studies in order to become a Systemic & Family Psychotherapist. This means I am qualified to work therapeutically with individuals, couples and families of all kinds, with a focus on how people connect with each other, manage transitions and strengthen their resources. My aim is to offer service users a safe space to explore the meaning they make of their experiences, support them in connecting with resilience and bringing about change in their lives. I am based in GIDS London but also work in Birmingham, in our satellite clinic, two days a month.
Where have you worked outside of GIDS?
Alongside GIDS, I also work as a Senior Systemic & Family Psychotherapist at Royal Free Hospital Eating Disorder services, supporting young people and families with eating difficulties. My previous clinical experience includes inpatient and outpatient child and adolescent services, adult/couple outpatient services in the NHS, as well as non-statutory services supporting individuals and families affected with HIV. I have therefore gained a lot of experience in supporting individuals and family systems presenting with often complex and enduring difficulties.
