A little bit about me:

I have been a family law solicitor for over 20 years and for 13 years I ran my own family law practice so am keenly aware of the stresses and strains that come with job. As a believer in keeping family conflict to a minimum I also trained to be a collaborative lawyer and an accredited family mediator.

The psychology behind conflict and the different impact it has on all of us has always interested me. It was this interest that led me to train to be therapeutic counsellor and I now offer counselling to those who have survived domestic abuse, relationship breakdown or have issues around anxiety, confidence and self-esteem.

I am a member of Resolution, the Family Mediators Association and the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy.

A little bit about supervision:

Ever wondered about any of the following:

  • Why some clients seem harder to work for/with than others?
  • Why you have a ‘block’ on certain files and not on others?
  • Why you find yourself feeling agitated or bullied by some clients and not by others?
  • Why you find yourself unknowingly being sucked into your client’s drama?
  • Why you take losing or winning certain cases so personally?

These are just some of the questions that can be answered in family law supervision sessions. Family law supervision is not about telling you how to do your job, it is about giving you that extra edge in understanding what is really happening when you sit down with a client – it is about far more than just knowing the law!
