About me and my therapy practice

I am specifically trained to provide CHILD AND ADOLESCENT COUNSELLING AND PSYCHOTHERAPEUTIC SUPPORT:  Not only we as parents but also our children can go through phases where not everything is going to plan. You might be concerned because your  child is showing you in their behavior that someting is not right. It is a big step to look for help in these situations. But providing  counselling is an effective way to help our children and adolescents make sense and explore what is happening for them. 

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. 

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 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. 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.
