About me and my therapy practice

I am an integrative child psychotherapist and DDP informed practitioner. I have been working as a child psychotherapist since 2009 in schools, for charities and in private practice. I have been running supervision groups for training organisations and also offer supervision on a one to one basis for therapists working with children and young people.

Practice description

I have been working as a child and adolescent psychotherapist since 2009 in schools, charities and privately. I have experience in running groups, managing trainees and working one -to- one therapeutically with children, young people and adults. My work is very diverse, as are my clients. I am passionate about working to help children, young people, adults and families to feel better about themselves and themselves in relation to others and the outside world. This is done in the context of an empathic therapeutic relationship in a safe, caring and confidential space. Part of the work can be using image, metaphor, play, the arts and the body. This helps to gain self-awareness and healing with children and young people with various issues.

I have experience working with children and young people with various issues affecting their well-being such as trauma, abuse, depression, anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, anger issues, obsessive compulsive behaviour, low self-esteem, loss and bereavement, self-harm, problems in intimacy, Autism, Asperger’s and ADHD. I also have wide experience working with children and young people who present challenging behaviour.

I have experience in supporting staff in schools, and run groups, to help enable staff to process difficulties they face in relation to child protection issues and in looking at different approaches to ways of working in the classroom.
