About me and my therapy practice
I work creatively with children and teenagers in addressing their mental health difficulties. I am child focused and child led, working at the child's pace. I believe this ensures they are invested in their own therapeutic journey.
As no two children or young people are the same, I use a range of creative tools to engage the client in therapy. Allowing them an opportunity to safely explore and express their difficulties in a safe and contained space with a Therapist who genuinely cares about their well being.
Regardless of the presenting problem, I am committed to incorporating confidence and resilience skills in my work with children and young people. I believe that this lays a solid foundation for their future and their sense of well being. My therapeutic work with children also ensures they leave with tangible coping strategies to address their difficulties.
I also believe in working with the network around the child or young person. So I work collaboratively with parents in supporting them in responding to and meeting their child's need outside of the therapy room. Empowering parents(where suitable) to support their child with their mental health difficulties contributes to the success of the therapeutic work.

My first session
I offer an initial 90mins assessment session with the parent and child. Typically I see the parent first on their own then I meet with the child on their own. This is however flexible on a case by case basis.
The assessment session is used to explore what brings your child to therapy and will include an exploration of your child's current situation and your child's past. It is also an opportunity for you and your child to see if I am the right therapist for you. As therapy is relationship based, it is important you choose a therapist that both you and your child are comfortable with. In order for your child to feel safe to explore their deeper or more difficult feelings.
I charge the same rate as my 45 minutes session for the 90 mins assessment session which is £70. Should you decide I am the right therapist for your child, subsequent sesisons will be for 45mins at a rate of £70 per session.
