About me and my therapy practice
I am a Highly Experienced therapist specialising in the support of CHILDREN , ADOLESCENTS , PARENTS and ADULTS.
In our modern and challenging lives it is not uncommon to reach a particular point where pressures can become overwhelming. This can be for a number of reasons.
It may be that your child is struggling at school/university.
It may be that an exceptional event has had a major impact on your ability to function healthily.
It may be that you are managing a challenging health condition.
It may be a self-realisation that your life-journey isn't unfolding as you would like.
My role is to support you in better understanding your desired outlook and by introducing a range of tools and therapies, help you address and positively manage your own outcome.
I am mother to two grown children and originally trained and worked as an NHS Nurse and Midwife.
Over the last twelve years I have worked extensively in schools, for the NHS in GP practices and with the children's mental health charity PLACE2BE.
Many ADULTS choose to work with me because they are experiencing overwhelming emotions that are impacting on their sense of self, their relationships, their work, and their ability to move forward in their lives.
Many parents ask me to work with their CHILD because they are presenting with challenging behaviours or they appear unhappy, anxious or depressed.
Many PARENTS ask me to support them in coping with their challenging or struggling child; to develop strategies to enable a more harmonious home environment, and more successful outcomes at school.
My aim is to support you/your child to:
1) empower yourself /them to better manage distressing emotions and behaviours
2) develop your/their resilience
3) accept your/their whole self with compassion and without judgment.
