“I like the way Guy got me to think of ways of helping myself instead of giving me all the answers.”

Therapy, consultation and other services

If you are interested in an approach that focuses on your hopes and resources, in either your life or work, then I hope these pages, which provide a guide to how I work and the services I offer, will be useful for you.

Solution-focused practice began in the world of therapy, and for the past 18 years I have specialised as a solution-focused counsellor and therapist, working with both individuals and families. My background in child and family social work and additional training in family therapy have given me extensive experience in working with young people and families.

I provide therapy in person in rooms in Hackney, East London (see the picture above) and also online and by telephone.

I also offer supervision and consultation. My experience in this area dates back to when I began supervising social work students in the early 1990s, while I received my first training in solution-focused supervision in 1999.

My Creative Practices page contains information on developments I have been involved in that take solution-focused practice ‘beyond the spoken word’, including the use of music, movement, dance and the use of cartoons.

Narrative therapy is a growing interest, and I am especially interested in how it can create connections between people, and be used alongside and to enrich solution-focused practices.

Consultation & Supervision


As the solution-focused approach brings out the best in practitioners and professionals as well as in clients, patients and service users, it is well suited to supervision and consultation.
