- Child and Adolescent Mental Health services
I am a highly skilled and experienced Integrative Child Psychotherapist, based in Hove. I have over 16 years’ experience working as a Counsellor/Psychotherapist and Mental Health Practitioner in the private and public sector, including working for over 6 years in a specialist CAMHS team.
As well as talking things through, I use play and creative media in my work with children and adolescents so that they have more tools with which to communicate and explore their thoughts and feelings.
I work with children and young people on various issues affecting their emotional well-being and behaviour.
Besides working 1:1 with children and adolescents, I also offer parental/carer consultation sessions. Sometimes it can be really useful for parents to have a consultation with an experienced mental health professional to explore concerns about their child’s behaviour or emotional well-being and think about what might help.
