Philippa Boulter, Consultant Child, Adolescent and Family Psychotherapist
1 Ogilvy Square,
I am a well-qualified Consultant Child, Adolescent and Family Psychotherapist. I have 28 years’ experience of working therapeutically with children, young people and families, 19 of these in the National Health Service's Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS). I also work with adults.
I have a small private practice which I operate from a comfortable therapeutic space in the Claines / Barbourne area of Worcester. There is plenty of parking.
I work with a wide range of social and emotional difficulties which include low mood, anxiety, trauma, self-harm, stress, bereavement, relationship problems and low confidence. I also work with difficulties with behaviour including sleep problems, self harming, aggressive and difficult behaviour and eating difficulties.
I offer short term psychotherapy as well as longer more intensive treatment. I work from a psychoanalytic perspective. I will think with you about what might be the most helpful approach when I meet with you.
I have significant experience of working with children, young people and adults who have had a history of early neglect and abuse.
I am able to work with children who are on the autistic spectrum, have ADHD and who have specific or global learning disabilities.
I trained at the Birmingham Trust of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. It is a 6 year intensive training and on completion enables membership of the Association of Child Psychotherapists (ACP).
I am happy and experienced in providing supervision and consultation to professionals.
