About me and my therapy practice
I offer a safe, non-judgemental space where a child, teenager or young adult can express their thoughts and feelings, helping them to manage and contain their difficulties and empower them to make sense of and understand their struggles. By placing an individual's needs first, I tailor my approach to suit each client using a mixture of talking, art and dyadic therapy to promote positive, lasting change.
I am a psychotherapist and counsellor working as a consultant and in private practice. I have an MA in Art Psychotherapy and am accredited by the HCPC. I am also a Registered Member of BACP and BAAT (British Association of Art Therapists). I am also a registered Adoption Specialist Therapist with Barnardo's and several Local Authorities.
I am currently a private practitioner and independent post-adoption therapist based in Clapham and Balham.
I have worked therapeutically with children, adolescents and adults living with anxiety, depression, complex mental health difficulties, disability, illness or adverse life experiences. I have experience working in a variety of settings including schools, the NHS and women’s centres.
In the past I have worked at a domestic and sexual violence charity; working with children and adolescents with complex trauma and suffering with the adverse effects associated with the experience of attachment disruption, abuse and family separation.
I have a special interest and training in attachment disorders and childhood and adolescent trauma. My consultancy work is with children in adoption, kinship and foster care. I am a registered independent Adoption therapist and registered Barnardo's Link Adoption and Family Support Service Therapist.
I have further training and experience in giving therapy to members of the LGBTQ+ communities.
I can also offer dyadic therapy, which involves working with a parent/caregiver and child. It is a way of working which focuses directly on the child’s primary attachment relationship.
