About me and my therapy practice
I am a fully qualified Psychotherapist with over 25 years post-qualifying experience.
I have worked in clinical settings, including CAMHS and the NHS, as well as statutory services including Cornwall, Devon and Bristol Avon North Somerset Local Authorities. I have worked with young people in Schools, Colleges, Crown Courts, and as an advocate within the criminal justice system.
My background is both in Mental Health and Safeguarding, and I specialise in helping young people and adults make sense of how early trauma and childhood experiences can impact on current difficulties, such as re-current depression and anxiety, or destructive cycles of addiction and insecure personal relationships.
I have extensive experience of young people's mental health and wellbeing, including issues of self harm and self-esteem.I have worked with looked-after children, children in Care and adoption issues.
I am an Accredited member of BACP and abide by the code of professional conduct and ethics. I work within Data protection guidelines and my practice is confidential and supervised.
My practice is fully inclusive and we share all decision making.
My first session
I offer a one hour assessment session, where we discuss history and current difficulties and think how best to work together to help.
Then we either set dates/ times - or if more appropriate I can signpost you to statutory services.
The assessment fee is £70 subsequent fees are £55 per hour.
I am offering Skype appointments or Telephone (due to Covid19).
Please get in touch if you would like to book an assessment, and it would be helpful if you can let me know if you are looking for a day time or evening appointment.
