Pauline Askin, Systemic Psychotherapist

I have 25 years experience of working in the NHS in general and mental health services and across the whole age range. From this broad base of experience I have developed skills in working with issues which may arise at any point in the family life cycle. As a systemic family psychotherapist I am interested in patterns in communication and behaviour which we develop in relationships and how these can be explored to aid understanding and enhance coping strategies in times of difficulty. I am committed to the idea that involving people who are important to the child/ young person in the work, brings a wider range of potentially useful ideas. This is why I choose to work with families.  I enjoy my work most when the talking we do 'fits' for the family and makes a difference for all concerned.
