About me and my therapy practice

I work mainly with children and young people and use a range of ways to help young people work through and process difficult feelings and experiences. I believe that it is through developing a relationship of absolute trust that my clients can process and come to terms with whatever they may be struggling with. Life can be very hard at times, and having some support can make all the difference. If it is more practical, I can see clients in schooI.

My work is integrative which means I use a range of theoretical perspectives. I use talk, play and creative work and games to build the therapeutic relationship. My work is person centred which means that my clients are in charge. I won't ask intrusive questions, we talk about what is troubling the child as and when they are ready. 

My background is in teaching and supporting children with Social, Emotional and Mental Health difficulties. I have a good understanding of the pressures  young children and young people experience and the impact this can have on families.

I aim to work closely and cooperatively with parents and caregivers.
