About me and my therapy practice

My work as a Child and Young Persons  Integrative Therapist (7 - 26 yrs) is an attachment focused, trauma informed, relational and creatively based clinical specialism for children and young adults in difficulty . My price reflects the safeguarding and joined up clinical work ( e.g families, professionals, agencies)  that can come with working with this vunrtable client group. 

I really understand that some children or young adults can have big feelings or  emotional experiences that are impacting  their capacity to trust themselves or thive  as they once did. Alongside this, behaviour can seem confusing  challenging or.      ' out of sync' with family members, peers, or adults in the relational environment of school.

I seek to build relationships that meet the indiviual needs of a child or young adult from where there they are today and specifically so, in terms of their;  developmental, emotional, and psychological needs and experiences.

I can offer child and young adults therapeutic interventions that can integrates talk therapy,  creativity (drawing and image making)  aspects of play therapy , age appropriate psycho education about trauma, stress, and our brains and bodies when things go wrong in order to help a client start to process and understand their emotional experiences

Clients are invited to express whatever is important to them, without judgement. Sessions travel at clients pace so that sessions are safe, paced, built on trust and work with a child or young adults strengths, rather than against them. The quaility  and trust of our relationship is central to this healing and change based proccess.
