Angus is a very experienced systemic family therapist having spent over thirty years delivering systemic therapy to families within NHS CAMHS teams across Somerset. He retains connections with psychological therapists in public services but, since February 2016, he works entirely privately with individuals, families and couples facing a wide variety of challenges.
Angus works creatively as a systemic therapist, using a strengths-based approach to enable families to review possibilities and underpin change. Family Therapy frequently has something to offer both as a ‘stand alone’ therapy and as an adjunct to other therapeutic modalities and Angus is open to seeing family members irrespective of the background issues present at the point of referral. When appropriate, Angus will offer to see couples and/ or families with a female colleague – similarly trained – so as to enrich the discussion, draw out subtle nuances and provide insight through reflective dialogue.
Angus undertakes a mix of shorter-term involvement and more extended work to sustain change depending upon the circumstances.
Angus is an active member of the Association for Family Therapy, currently serving on the Registration and Ethics sub-committees.
