About me and my therapy practice
Hello and Welcome, I am a qualified (MA) and registered Child, Adolescent & Family Psychotherapist offering Psychotherapy both long and short term to Children, Adolescents, Teenagers, Parents & Families. I am also a trained EMDR therapist.
You may be considering seeking help and guidance through psychotherapy or counselling. Talking about your situation and feelings confidentially in therapy can help you work through difficulties and cope better, so that you can feel happier and begin to see a new perspective and a way forwards.
Within therapy I work with clients to facilitate insight, growth and lasting change that can be integrated into your way of life. I work in an integrative, attachment informed and psychodynamic way offering both long and short-term therapy.
I have been working for over 30 years in varied roles within Education and Care, Mental Health, the NHS and in Business. I have experience in working with a range of difficulties including attachment difficulties, anxiety and depression, loss, complex trauma, physical, sexual and emotional abuse, neglect and with serious mental health difficulties.
I offer both short and long-term Psychotherapy with:
Adolescents & Teenagers
Young people today may face more pressures than ever before and many go through challenging and stressful times at school, university, at home and at work.
Relationships may be challenging with peers, family and colleagues and also with oneself. Feelings of anxiety and depression may be experienced. Personal identity, confidence, self esteem and relationship issues are often at the forefront of challenges faced during this time in life. It is also a time of huge potential for personal growth, development and change.
I may recommend we integrate EMDR for specific traumatic memories that may still be distressing.
Parents and Carers
I offer consultations with parents/carers experiencing varying difficulties. Some parents may have concerns about their child/teenager and are looking for parental support and guidance. I aim to offer a deeper psychological insight into behaviours and needs and how to meet these, and offer support in what may be regular, a one off or 'as and when needed' appointments, to help you support yourself, family and child/teenager better through life’s difficulties.
I see trainees who require a registered Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist as a necessary part of their training in counselling & Psychotherapy. I am also UKCP registered.
