About me and my therapy practice
Sometimes coping with life can become problematic because situations and events may lead us along a difficult pathway. We may try to understand our own behaviours, thoughts and emotions, as well as those of others, but coping may not be easy.
I regard each person as an individual in their own right, so my practice aims to suit diverse client's needs. I bring together a variety of techniques to support people of all ages with a range of issues.
I specialise in working with children from age 5+ and young people aged 13-18, who experience a range of emotional and psychological issues, including trauma. I use play, art, drama and sand play techniques, utilising both talking and creative therapies.
I combine my clinical background with intuitive sense, empathy, sensitivity and a deep perception of client need. As a clinician I practiced at senior level within NHS and non-statutory sectors. I was formerly a Consultant at the national charity, DrugScope. As a teacher, I used my sensitivity to connect to the needs of children and young people.
