I have been working therapeutically in the helping sector for 15 years with children, young people and adults struggling with a variety of difficulties in their lives, including: emotional difficulties, mental health problems, learning disabilities, self-harm and experiences of trauma.
I have a Master’s degree in Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy from Terapia institute in London. I have full clinical accreditation with UKCP and as such I abide to their ethical framework. I am also on the UKCP’s Children and young people specialist register.
I have an enhanced DBS on the update system which you can view online.
Sessions offered include:
Child therapy: I currently visit primary schools to see children age 11 and below.
Young people/adolescents: Confidential sessions where you will be listened to and supported to explore what is going on for you. I work in an integrative way; I adapt to your individual needs and personality by using a combination of approaches. The therapy session is your space to use as you need to and it is important that a) you feel safe and b) you are getting what you need from it. You may want to use creative processes such as art work or using sand tray or you may prefer talking. I am open as to what you bring to the sessions and how you feel safest exploring these.
Parent sessions: A confidential space for parents looking for support with supporting their child. This could be due to any mental health, behaviour problems or trauma. We will look at how things are impacting you as a parent and use the space to think about what your child is experiencing what they are needing and how you can help them.
All sessions are £60 for 50 minutes. Before starting sessions with any under 18’s I always meet with their parent/guardian first. There is no charge for this meeting.
If you are unsure, have any questions or would like to book an initial meeting with me please do contact me.
