What I do


I am a Trans-generational Family Therapist working with families affected by Parental Alienation.

I provide expert witness services in the Family Courts and I also provide reunification services for families.  If you wish to instruct me you must use the paperwork we provide at the Family Separation Clinic which includes information about how we work.

Please also contact me through the Family Separation Clinic for information on costs, timescales and my CV.

About My Work With Families

I am recognised as an international expert in both assessment and treatment of parental alienation.  I work to internationally recognised standards of practice when I assist families and I do not offer generic therapy in any circumstances in cases of parental alienation.

I specialise in using Trans-Generational approaches to Psychotherapy which are tailored to the needs of families affected by parental alienation.  I also use Psycho-Genealogy in coaching support to rejected parents.  I work with children of all ages who are affected by psychological splitting as a defence after divorce and separation, I work holistically with families who have become stuck in the process of recovery from divorce and separation.

I am a member of the Parental Alienation  Study Group which is a worldwide group concentrating on awareness and research into the problem and I am co-founder of the European Association of Parental Alienation Practitioners, which is working to establish and regulate standards of practice in work with children and their families affected by parental alienation in fourteen countries in Europe.

Other Things About Me

I am also a writer and researcher on everything to do with families and family separation. I write for Huffington Post on the Psychology of everday living and I am currently writing a series of children’s books to help them with the difficulties which arise after their parents divorce or separate.

In my research, I am particularly interested in intergenerational trauma patterns and how they feature in cases of Parental Alienation. At the Family Separation Clinic I work with colleagues on development of treatment routes for families affected by the problem.

The Family Separation Clinic offers  coaching for alienated parents all over the world by Skype as well as a range of other services to support families in the UK.

I welcome new clients from around the world and work on a short and long term basis in a Trans-Generational framework to enable understanding of the self in relationship to the family across time.  I particularly work with an understanding of how encrypted secrets within families are present in parental alienation and how these can be understood and addressed as part of the recovery process.

Warning:  This blog is my personal view, it is not that of the Family Separation Clinic.  You should be aware however that if you are in court proceedings you should not post on this blog using your real name or anything that can identify you as it can prejudice outcomes.
