About me

I offer therapeutic consultation, assessment and brief and long-term psychotherapy to children, young people and parents. I work individually from consulting rooms in Brondesbury Park and Maida Vale, and with a team of colleagues as part of the Harbour Psychotherapy Practice.

What to expect when contacting me:

As a first step, I recommend a brief telephone conversation at a mutually convenient time to discuss any difficulties that the young person or family would like help with. This can be followed by an initial consultation to explore these concerns in greater depth. During the consultation I aim to work with the family and young person towards a shared understanding of the presenting difficulties, and to make a recommendation as to what kind of approach would be most helpful. This may include offering a thorough assessment, making a recommendation for brief or long-term psychotherapy to the child or young person and offering support to parents or carers.

Training, qualifications & experience

I trained at the British Psychotherapy Foundation in London, and am a member of the Association of Child Psychotherapists and The British Psychotherapy Foundation. I am also a founding member of the Harbour Psychotherapy Practice.

Through my work in a number of inpatient and outpatient child mental health services within the NHS, most recently at the Tavistock Centre in London, I have gained extensive experience of working with children, adolescents and their parents facing a wide range of complex difficulties. Alongside my private practice, I now work with young people and families at the Brent Centre for Young People, helping young people and families with difficulties including developmental trauma, school refusal, self-harming, eating disorders, and problems relating to feelings of anger, anxiety and unhappiness. Before training as a psychotherapist, I worked with children and young people in schools, and at the Anna Freud National Centre for Children and Families.

In addition to those mentioned above, the difficulties I can help with include:

Sadness and constant worry
Anxiety and a variety of specific fears and/or phobias
Aggressive and violent behaviour, including forceful tantrums and overwhelming anger
Insecurity, intense shyness and lack of confidence
Separation difficulties, including when settling into new environments
Problems in attachment relationships with family members
Difficulties related to eating, which may take various forms (not eating enough / overeating / extreme fussy eating, etc.)
Sleeping difficulties
Oppositional behaviour
Difficulties forming and maintaining friendships
Learning difficulties
Underachievement at school
Self-harm
Suicidal thoughts and/or suicide attempts
Neurodevelopmental difficulties
Specific difficulties related to looked-after and adopted children and young people, many of whom have suffered extended neglect and abuse
