About me and my therapy practice
I am a qualified Social Worker, Person Centred Counsellor, an EFT Advanced Practitioner and a Reiki Practitioner. My qualifications also include Levels 1 and 2 in Theraplay and Level 1 in DDP.
I have nearly 25 years’ experience of working therapeutically with children, young people and their families (as well as supporting professionals) on issues such as sexual abuse, domestic violence, attachment difficulties, trauma, anxiety, loss and bereavement. This also includes CAMHS experience which involved working with ‘looked after’ children and a range of complex issues.
Individual therapy (person centred counselling and EFT) to children, young people and adults from all communities especially the Black and South Asian communities including asylum seekers and refugees too. I use therapeutic interventions (such as play, drama, storytelling, mindfulness and art) to foster healthy relationships as well as aid recovery from traumatic experiences.
Specific therapeutic work to children and young people in foster families and in adoptive homes as well as those in Local Authority Care homes.
Trauma and attachment work including assessments based on the Marschak Interaction Method (MIM) and therapeutic work based on Theraplay® principles and PACE.
Family systemic work with specific focus on building healthy, positive attachments and understanding challenging behaviour.
Therapeutic group work to trauma survivors where the focus is creating safety and trust, promoting control, building resilience and empowerment, and prioritising self-empathy and self-care.
Workshop programmes to parents, foster carers, adoptive parents and professionals regarding fostering healthy attachments, therapeutic parenting and self-care.
Consultative space to the Network of professionals supporting the child/young person.
