Sabina Rosdarklin, MA, MACP, Child Psychotherapist & Adult Counsellor
I am a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist and an adult counsellor in private practice. As a private practitioner I try to contribute to meeting local need for easily accessible, high quality therapeutic services. I offer a private, confidential, psychotherapy service that prioritises prompt consultation, assessment and treatment without delay.
I have over 20 years experience working therapeutically with children, young people and their families in NHS CAMHS settings, in education settings and in children in care independent agencies and charities.
As a psychotherapist I work with children and young people up to the age of 25. I also provide therapeutic support to adults seeking help with family issues, including parents, adoptive parents, foster and kinship carers.
A one-off meeting to talk about difficulties is often a powerful, effective aid to parents, carers and young people; I provide one-off consultations if that is what we agree meets your needs best at present. I work in partnership with parents, carers and young people to understand the issues you bring and to explore together how best to address these, whether in brief or longer-term psychotherapy, or in a different type of therapy. I will refer you to a professional colleague in a related psychological service if that is the more appropriate treatment option.
I respond to initial queries within twenty-four hours and offer a low cost initial consultation within five working days.
