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. 

I work in primary and secondary schools with individuals, groups and teachers. Providing support and strategies for children and staff. My well being model has been successful in supporting outcomes in Personal,Social and Emotional development.
