About me and my therapy practice

  I'm Jilly MacPherson and I'm a specialist in children's and young people's emotional and mental health issues. I'm a psychodynamic child & adolescent psychotherapist, having worked in schools and with charities extensively, including with young survivors of the Grenfell Tower tragedy.


I understand that it can be very hard for parents to know what to do when their child is suffering emotionally, that they can feel very helpless and do not know where to seek support. They may feel that they are even in some way to blame and that seeking help is shameful, or even to be avoided. We would never hold back from taking a child to a doctor for a physical issue however, like a broken leg, and emotional and mental health issues are absolutely no different. The best treatment is always to engage early with a specialist.

I practise psychodynamic psychotherapy, in an individual face to face, child led, safe & relaxed setting, looking at a child’s experiences to understand their difficulties & to support recovery. This is done safely in a contained & confidential way, via conversation, play therapy, art therapy, puppets, sand play, storytelling & imaginative play.

I am registered with & accredited by the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) I have a Masters degree in Psychology and French from the University of St Andrews & a Pg.Dip in Child & Adolescent Psychodynamic Psychotherapy & Counselling from Birkbeck, University of London.

I have two practices in London: W1G & Richmond, TW10. Please contact me for rates. I am able to accept insurers: CIGNA, AXA, BUPA Global (but not BUPA UK) & AVIVA.
