About me and my therapy practice
*** Not currently taking on new clients ***
Hi, I hope the information below will help you understand how my work could support your child with their current difficulties.
Specialising in creative and play-based therapy, I have a Masters in Child & Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counselling (University of Cambridge).
Often, children struggle to explain what is troubling them in a way that can help them resolve their difficulties. Creative and play-based therapy provides a specialised therapeutic environment that will give your child the opportunity to use play and creativity as their way to communicate and work through their feelings and troubles, in much the same way an adult might use talk to figure their difficulties out. Your child will find a variety of arts and creative materials to use in their sessions with me.
Of course, if your child would rather just talk instead – that’s OK too! During each session with your child it is my job to understand their current suffering as much as possible whilst providing them with the optimal therapeutic conditions for their positive growth.
For many years, I have been drawn to work that can somehow help alleviate the suffering of youngsters, feeling a deep recognition of, and empathy for, any distress they may be experiencing. Whilst working as a teacher and special educational needs teacher I began training as a child & adolescent psychotherapeutic counsellor, latterly working as a school counsellor across schools in Essex and Cambridgeshire. Now based in North Yorkshire, I want to continue my commitment to making younger lives better.
Over the past 15 years I have supported wide-ranging difficulties; whatever troubles your child is experiencing (whether listed below or not), don't hesitate to get in touch.
