About me

I specialise in counselling with children and young people aged 4 and upwards. I work both within schools across Leicester and Leicestershire and in private practice. If necessary, I can accommodate home visits.

With an aim to bring about therapeutic change, I use a range of creative media including sand play, art, clay, puppets and storytelling to enable the child to express themselves in a way that is manageable to them. These methods help to explore experiences of trauma, loss and attachment difficulties that many children face.

I work closely with parents to help to bring about change, which is often necessary with young children, while keeping conversations confidential.
