About me and my therapy practice
I am a MSc Child and Adolescent Psychodynamic Counsellor and Psychotherapist.
I currently offer 1:1 online therapy sessions for young people between the ages of 11-19. I also offer some sessions with the parents too.
I usually like to start with a consultation session to get a good idea of why the client is being referred for therapy, along with some background history. This is for 50 minutes and is a £40 charge.
I also offer sessions to professionals/organisations working with young people e.g. group/reflective sessions or work discussions regarding a young person.
My approach is mainly Psychodynamic as I explore early/recent experiences which may drive presenting behaviours or feelings. I also explore unconscious processes (fears, thoughts, dreams wishes) which contributes to ongoing unhealthy patterns of behaviours.
I have over 10 years experience of working with young people in areas such as Social Services (With CLA, Care Leavers & Family Support Service, Education (in PRU's & as a Deputy SENCo), Youth Offending and Youth Work.
