About me and my therapy practice
I am a psychodynamic psychotherapist who trained at the Tavistock and Portman NHS Clinic combined with the University of East London. I am qualified to work with children, young people and families. I also work with adults in the context of their parenting and family work. I am able to offer small group work and family or systemic work where appropriate.
I work in a psychodynamic way, often exploring relational aspects of life. I am able to integrate CBT and Mindfulness techniques into my therapy. This is often very effective with children and young people.
I work with schools and support systems where required, to ensure that there is a holistic and comprehensive approach to the work.
My practice is based in West London Chiswick. However due to the current level of Covid 19infection, I am working remotely and offering video or telephone sessions.
I offer short and longer term work dependent upon the needs of individuals.
My first session
The first session with a child or young person will usually follow an initial conversation with the parents or carer. During this first session we will explore the reasons for referral and I will explain a little about how I work. We will talk through the process of therapy and I will assess the readiness of the child or young person for the work to begin. We will then discuss with the parents and start a programme of therapeutic input.
First sessions for parent or family work will be slightly different and usually set parameters for the work and may be goal or target orientated.
Sessions are regularly reviewed and progress discussed with the child and parent.
