About me and my therapy practice

I am an experienced Children and Young Person (CYP) Counsellor, systemic family practitioner and EMDR therapist. I am psychodynamically trained and work with children from the age of 5 to 25 years using art, play, sandtray and talking mediums to help facilitate emotional processing - working with the metaphor helps clarify and rationalise presenting issues which in turn helps the client to help themselves find an answer to their aims of therapy.

I also work with adults and families using interactive and revealing processes that, again, assist the clients understanding of their own thought process and interactions with other people including family members. The therapeutic space encourages emotional exploration of self and awareness of others within their immediate family, friendship and work dynamic.  

Working with trauma (at all levels) I am an EMDR therapist working towards my accreditation and am currently training in CYP EMDR.

I am a trainee supervisor for CYP and adult counsellors/trainees and will give concessions for this work due to the nature of the placement requirement. 

Practice description

I work from my own address using a separate building specifically designed for CYP, adult, family and EMDR therapy.

I also work in a school setting and can travel to work-based setting if there is a requirement.
