About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced counsellor who specialises in working with children and adolescents. I offer both long-term and short-term interventions. I communicate with schools and external services if additional support is needed. Communication with parents is a vital part of my work. 

I was previously a teacher and went on to complete a Masters at the Tavistock & Portman NHS Trust in psychodynamic counselling/therapy in school settings. I am a registered member of BACP. My clinical work has spanned across both Primary and Secondary settings. My work entails working with parents/teachers if needed. My experience in teaching helps me to understand how emotional factors can interfere with children’s learning, 

Practice description

I am a psychodynamic counsellor/therapist which means I help clients understand how early experiences affect our thoughts, emotions and patterns of behaviour. Getting to know ourselves in this way helps us to pay attention to repeated patterns of behaviour which in turn can help us in our present relationships. I also use mindfulness and CBT techniques with young people in my work if needed. Many children and young people find it hard to articulate how they feel, ‘it’s just all bad’. Together we can put words to these emotions, and make sense of the senseless. 

You can contact me via this site or email me to book an appointment.
