About me and my therapy practice
I am a child therapist and systemic practitioner. I work with clients from all age groups and hold a particular interest in child and adolescent work. I have experience of working with children and families within schools and alternative education provisions for over 12 years.
Outside of private practice I am a project manager for a children’s counselling service, it is my role to support the needs of the children and families. As a clinical supervisor I have supported the development of counsellors from a wide variety of trainings for effective therapeutic intervention with children and young people. One day a week I am based in the NHS Specialist Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services. Through these experiences and work within a substance misuse programme for families the psychotherapeutic and the systemic modality are the core of my interests, in which child development, holistic approaches and supporting counsellors through supervision.
I also provide Personalised Individual Parent Training (PIPT) which is an intensive parenting program designed to promote a positive attachment relationship between a parent (or carer) and a child by reducing children's oppositional and antisocial behaviour and increasing their prosocial behaviour. I work collaboratively with families, using expert knowledge and the parent's understanding of their child. It is based on Social Learning Theory and Attachment Theory principles. Its effects can be seen fairly quickly, so it is very popular with parents.
