Specialist court work: consultations, assessment and therapeutic services for family work requested by courts and local authorities

I am an experienced systemic family psychotherapist.  In my NHS practice I teach and train, and undertake clinical work at the internationally-renowned Tavistock Centre.

In my private practice I provide assessments and reports for the Family Courts in child care and contact cases. I carry out effective therapeutic interventions in adoption, fostering and care cases. I have worked in the statutory and voluntary sector with children and families in different contexts, including court-mandated assessment and treatment work in complex child protection cases. I have appeared as an Expert Witness in Court proceedings, and have worked for the Family Court Service.

My specialist assessments include:

My therapeutic support  covers a wide range of areas: family mediation, relationships and couple work, attachment work, protective behaviour work and work on surviving sexual and domestic abuse.
