About me and my therapy practice
Face to face therapy and online therapy for young people and also adults.
I am able to offer intergrative psychotherapeutic counselling for children, young people and adults tailored specifically to the client’s individual needs.
I have a Masters in CYP intergrative psychotherapeutic counselling from Birmingham City University and currently work as a school counsellor at an inner city school in Birmingham offering bespoke therapy for pupils aged between 5-18 years of age. I also worked for many years as a schoolteacher so have extensive knowledge and experience of child development and the many pastoral and mental health issues that young people face. I have a passion for helping young people be able to express and explore themselves and process their experiences in a safe space, allowing healing, building resilience and self confidence to enable them to develop their best self.
As an intergrative therapist I have had training in many theoretical perspectives of psychotherapy including neuroscience based somatic trauma therapy, cognitive behaviour therapy, psychoanalytic therapy appropriately applied in a person centred humanistic approach.
I have a particular interest and personal experience in the role of therapy for young people with autistic spectrum disorders, ADHD and issues that often face the LGBTQ+ community, especially gender identity issues.
My first session
First sessions will always be an assessment process and for primary aged children this will include a parent/carer.
Background information will be taken and a consultation of the needs and goals of therapy discussed. Confidentiality and its limitations, therapeutic boundaries are explained and a therapeutic contract will be agreed upon that will be the starting point of a safe therapeutic relationship.
