About me and my therapy practice

I provide child and adolescent counselling. Sometimes life can be difficult. Not only we as parents but also our children can go through phases where not everything is going to plan. And I have found that in these situations it can be really useful to help children make sense of what is happening for them. I am deeply committed to work with children in order to assist them in their development. This has always been an aspect of life where I felt I was able to make a difference. My dedication to this work is reflected in the extensive training I have taken over the years: My qualifications include an MA in Child Psychiartry and Social Psychology (FRG), a Postgraduate Certificate in Integrative Child Psychotherapy Studies, a Diploma in Child Counselling and a Diploma in the Application of Art in Therapy and Education.

My counselling sessions offer children with a variety of difficulties an opportunity to express themselves through creative arts media such as clay, paint, role play, puppetry, sand tray work as well as reflective dialogue. By exploring the themes that matter to them in a playful, methaphoric way we find ways to express feelings, address worries and anxieties and gently open a path to cope better with what is happening for them. The aim is for your child to to feel heard and understood and thus to become enabled to work through their difficulties and begin to develop more effective coping strategies. I have experience in long term and short term work and am able to adapt the length of our work to the needs of your child.

My training has provided me with a deep understanding of the psychology and neurobiology of child mental health and I am trained in the assessment, diagnosis, management and therapeutic intervention in the work with children.
