Jacqueline Van Roosmalen
I am a child and adolescent psychotherapist expertly trained to work with young people of all ages who experience depression, deliberate self harm, trauma, anxiety, school refusal, bereavement and relationship difficulties. I work with parents who are concerned about their children and who need a supportive relationship within which to reflect on their parenting and their relationship with their children. I offer brief and long term individual psychotherapy as well as parent/child psychotherapy. I have nearly 20 years of specialism in child and family mental health in the NHS and now work solely in independent practice.
As a craniosacral therapist I work with people of all ages. This is a very gently and profound way of working where the focus is on the underlying energetic system in the body. It is here that memories and emotion are stored up from the past and can significantly influence the present as seen in symptoms such as headaches, back pain, sleeplessness, chronic fatigue, indigestion etc etc. Using craniosacral therapy I work with adults who are suffering as a result of childhood or later life difficulties and where the impact of these experiences are stored in the body and manifest as stress and tension in various forms.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained as a Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist at the Society of Analytical Psychology and qualified in 2006. I have nearly 20 years of experience in the NHS, in in-patient and out-patient (CAMHS) clinics. I am a tutor of Infant Observation and theory seminars on the British Psychoanalytic Foundation MSc at BPF/Birkbeck. I am a supervisor of counsellors and psychotherapists working with young people. I have extensive experience working with undergraduate and postgraduate students at UCL and Kings College as a Specialist Mental Health Mentor. My current independent practice comprises intensive and non-intensive individual psychotherapy with young people and parents, both short and long term. I also work with parents and families with a focus on relationships.
I am a registered Cranio-Sacral therapist and I work with people of all ages. Craniosacral therapy is a very gently yet particularly profound treatment that uses touch to engage with the underlying energetic system of the mind-body matrix. At this level of communication deep rooted pain and suffering can be alleviated, using the body's inherent wisdom to heal.
