About me

I am an MBACP-accredited Child and Young Person's Integrative Therapist. I work with children and young people aged 5 to 25.
My heart lies in helping children and young people to thrive. I am passionate about and a firm believer in early intervention. I have a gentle and calm approach I understand how daunting it can be for children and young people to come for counselling.

Passionate about children and young people�s mental health and emotional wellbeing. I started as a volunteer counsellor for Childline.

My experience includes working:
- as a children's counsellor and supervisor with Place2Be, a leading provider of support for children's mental health in schools, running 2 projects within a primary and secondary school.
- in a special needs SEMH (social emotional and Mental Health) secondary school, counselling children and young people with complex issues, neurodiversity and traumatic histories.
- for a local counselling charity offering free counselling to young people aged 12-25 years old.

In my private practice I work both long and short-term with children and young people.

I am an accredited member of the BACP British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy and am bound by the code of Ethics & Practice demanded by the professional body.

Through my experience working in schools, I have seen how young people's emotional states and struggles can often impact heavily on their ability to learn and thrive in the school environment.

With all ages, I place great importance on building a trusting empathic therapeutic relationship and creating a safe and confidential environment where children and young people are accepted and valued as they are, allowing them to explore, process and express feelings, build confidence and develop resilience and self-reflection. Exploring issues and life experiences that are preventing them from reaching their full potential or causing emotional distress.

If your child is struggling, it can be really difficult and worrying as a parent � and it might feel like a big step to decide to reach out to a counsellor/ therapist.

If you would like to speak with me in confidence please do contact me to see how I can help.

Areas of interest

I have worked with children and young people from a wide range of different backgrounds and different family experiences, who have been experiencing and living with a wide variety of issues.

As every child is unique, I use a range of therapeutic approaches to assess how best to support the child/young person in their therapy journey.
As an integrative therapist, I am:
- psychodynamic in my thinking i.e. I think about what is being communicated unconsciously as well as literally
- person-centred in that I place a high value on the relationship between the therapist and the client
- systemic in thinking about the child or young person in the context of his/her family.
- creative in the way I use creative and playful mediums to suit the development needs of every individual young person, to explore their thoughts and feelings. I listen and pay attention to what they are saying verbally and non-verbally.
