About me and my therapy practice

Hello, I am an experienced and fully accredited Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapeutic Counsellor, MBACP UKCP.

I work with children, adolescents and parents (carers) in both private practice and schools.  I am also trained to work online.

As an integrative psychotherapist I draw on a wide range of theories and styles, recognising  each child as an individual. Using the child’s natural form of expression; creativity and play to explore their feelings.

Fear and phobias

Friendship issues
