About me and my therapy practice

I am a Child and Adolescent Counsellor that uses Art and Play in therapy sessions. I run my own private practice and work in family homes or schools if required. My training was completed at the Insitute of Arts in Therapy and Education(IATE). 

I have worked with Children,Young people and their families for over 20 years as a Children's Centre Manager for Sure Start. I hold a Degree in Early Years and Childhood Studies,  making me an expert in the field of Early Education. My work as a counsellor and my experience of working with parents means I have a number of training tools to support parents with their children's emotional development. 

I run workshops in my practice and in the local community. Workshops can be bespoke to your individual requirements. I use the application of arts and play within all of my therapeutic groups.
