I have a great deal of experience working with children and teens aged between 6 and 18 years. I use a combination of talking therapy and arts therapy to deliver an integrative, child-led approach to supporting young people with a range of complex needs (e.g. anxiety, anger, behavioural difficulties, self-esteem, trauma, bereavement, attachment issues, SEN/learning difficulties).
I am registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Association of Art Therapists (BAAT).

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
