About me and my therapy practice

Please note: due to the Corona Virus outbreak I will now only be offering sessions online via Skype and not at my usual therapy room in North London.

I help children and young people to feel better about themselves, their relationships and their future. 

I support families to improve communication, manage conflict and develop understanding.

My work enables mums and dads to parent with confidence. 

At Play and Talk Therapy Services, I offer play, creative and family therapy for a range of problems including behavioural difficulties, autism, low mood, stress and anxiety, family separation or conflict, self-harm, eating problems, childhood trauma and bereavement.

I am an experienced child and adolescent counsellor and an accredited member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists. I have been working with children, young people and their families for over 10 years with a focus on counselling in schools.

I undertook my Masters training at the University of Cambridge and have since attended specialist courses in the areas of trauma, attachment and neuroscience.

I currently lecture at the University of Northampton on their Child and Adolescent Counselling Masters Programme.
