You’re Not My F*cking Mother and other things Gen Z say in therapy
will be published by PCCS Books in April 2024. These therapeutic snapshots make compulsive reading for all those concerned with the human psyche and the struggles of young adults in the Western world today. They illustrate how mothers show up in (almost) everybody’s therapy, and how they, their and our own heritages and baggage shape us all. 

Stop F*cking Nodding and other things 16 year olds say in therapy (PCCS Books, 2022) is for anyone who knows, loves, is baffled by, or wants to help someone who is, has been, or is going to be sixteen. It is a book of vivid short stories which explore sex, gender, body image, self-esteem, self-injury, loneliness, loss and despair with frank dialogue, informed analytic understanding, laugh-out-loud humour and mercurial charm.  

Reflective Practice in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy (Routledge, 2020) models a thoughtful approach to understanding children and young people. It considers fantasy and lies, sex and identity, labelling, play, endings and loss, and is of interest to anyone who cares about young people’s mental health, including parents and carers.
