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.  In my private practice I see children and young people for counselling/psychotherapy and I also offer Parent Support sessions. 

My works is largely based around helping clients to gain awareness of their internal world, in other words how things are for them both at a conscious and an unconscious level. This can be instrumental in gaining awareness of how individuals feel about themselves and about the world around them, which in turn can provide greater insight into what is causing them to struggle. With this often comes greater resilience and a more developed capacity to cope with challenges.

I provide a safe space where each client 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 individual 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. It's up to each client to choose whether to use play, art and/or talk during their sessions. Young people typically engage verbally in the therapeutic process with me. 

My Parent support sessions are for parents-only and I also provide parent & child sessions (children 0-5). Both types of sessions aim  to help parents/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.
