About me and my therapy practice
Hello and welcome! I am Cara and I am specifically trained to work with children and adolescents. I also have a wealth of experience working with adults. I have completed a 5-year masters in child and adolescent psychotherapy and counselling and I am fully accredited by UKCP and am a registered member of BACP.
If you are either a child, adolescent or adult, perhaps you feel that you need some extra support to help you through a particularly difficult time, or maybe you feel you need help with more longstanding issues. Counselling or psychotherapy can provide just that, a safe space to explore and process your feelings and work through any anxieties, traumas, fears or worries that you may be experiencing or have experienced.
As well as working as a psychotherapist in private practice, I currently work as a therapist in a fostering agency, providing foster carers with therapeutic support. I have also worked as a school counsellor, providing therapy to children and young people on a one to one basis in a variety of schools across London, Havering and Essex. I also work with parents, thinking with them about how to best support their child.
I work in an integrative way, which means that I access a wide variety of approaches that best suit each client. For some clients, this may be through talking, but for others, it might be through play, art or other forms of creativity, where conflicts and traumas can be worked through, in a way that feels most comfortable to each individual.
