About me and my therapy practice

I work as a play and creative arts therapist based in Lightwater Surrey.  I work with children from the age of 5 to teenagers and adults who are looking to use creative arts in their therapy.

I also work with parents using filial therapy, a form of parent/child relationship therapy, teaching parents to hold a special play time using therapeutic techniques.


Practice description

Branching out on my own as a therapist in 2013, clinical supervisor and trainer I have worked extensively in schools, and for children's services with many children and families who have experienced extreme trauma and abuse, and have my own private practice. This might be working one to one with children, or with their parents, or with both together, and even with the people who support these families.

My aim is to make life better for those who are struggling and make a difference to families who face daily challenges that often seem impossible to change. Exploring past and present difficulties I hope to help others to see another way forward, making sense of past experiences, and finding a positive way to move on.

About me and my therapy practice

I provide clinical supervision for play therapists, home/school link workers, ELSAs, teachers, and charity support workers.  I use creative activities to help my clients to understand the dynamics of their relationship with their clients, to explore transference and counter-transference.  I work using the seven-eyed model of supervision and also the Kolb reflective cycle.


Practice description

I'm passionate about supervision and love Robin Shohet's work; I aim to be the supervisor who supports, encourages, promotes and work as an advocate for my clients, and their clients alike. I look to provide an environment of safety, security and trust in order to bring relief to those suffering. Together we can look to find some clarity and recognition of what might be happening for my clients and their clients.

Please give me a call to arrange an introductory session to see if we can work together.
