I have over twenty seven years experience of working with children, young people and adults using Drama and Movement Therapy. I use both face to face therapy and online therapy. My areas of expertise are ASD, ADHD, anxiety, depression, psychosis, trauma and bereavement.
Also I use a therapy dog for animal assisted therapy which is particularly helpful in cases of trauma and anxiety. He is called Yoshi Bear and is a chocolate cocker spaniel.

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.
