About me and my therapy practice

I am a psychodynamic counsellor and psychotherapist with experience of working in the school sector,  the voluntary sector and in association with the NHS.  Whilst I have extensive experience working with adults, young people and children, I specialise as Child and Adolescent therapist. 

I work with clients of all ages to help them gain awareness of their internal world. This can help them to understand how they see themselves and the world around them, and therefore gain greater insight into what is causing them to struggle. This often helps individuals to become more resourceful and at ease with themselves and others. It can also build resilience, enabling them to develop ways to cope with difficult situations and feelings. 

I provide a safe space where each person can bring up what matters to them, in their own way and in their own time. This enables the building of trust and expression, which is essential to the therapeutic process. My work is highly relational, which means that central to the process is my engagement with how each child, young person or adult is feeling and what they may be communicating. This enables me to make a connection with them and to help them to make sense of their experience.

I have play and art equipment for babies and children available at my practice, and it is up to each client to choose whether to use play, art and/or talk during their sessions. Young people and adults typically engage verbally in the therapeutic process with me. 

I also provide parent & child sessions (children 0-5) to help parents and carers with concerns and issues regarding parenting and their relationship with their child/children. 

My fees for all initial consultations are £35. Subsequent consultations and sessions are £45.
