About me

Therapy for Children and Teenagers

As parents, we tend to worry about many aspects of our child’s life. When something happens that affects their wellbeing, we would go to the end of the world to fix things. You might be trying to fix things right now; trying to talk to your child (who doesn’t want to engage with you) read books, google, contact your GP or CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service). You might feel frustrated that you’re going round in circles or feel downright stuck.

I work with children who have anxiety or low mood. They might have problems at school even refusing to go, be withdrawn, have trouble going to bed, have headaches and tummy aches or refuse to sleep over at a friends house. Many children that I see worry a lot, spend a lot of time on their screens, are angry or have low confidence.

I offer cognitive behavioural therapy that provides life long tools to help your child work through their difficulties and bolster their confidence. I’m a vibrant creative therapist who can hold flexible sessions to meet the needs of your child (especially if they don’t like sitting still). If your child is ready to move forward, please get in touch today.

Therapy for Adults in their 20's and 30's

It is common for a number of major life changes  to occur in our 20’s and 30’s. It is a time where our careers can start, we might make some large financial decisions, move away, move house, get married, divorced or have children. Relationships can fail and friendships can fade. It is therefore not surprising that during this stage of our lives, it is common to experience anxiety or depression. I am able to support you through the difficulties you’re experiencing by providing a time where you can be truly heard in a non judgemental and warm atmosphere. I will encourage you to challenge your anxiety, work with you to boost your confidence and empower you to get back on track.

My Background

My background has been in mental health from the age of 18. At that time I worked as an agency healthcare assistant for the elderly and with adults in the old secure hospital wards. Then, when I finished university with a degree in psychology, I worked with charities who focused on supporting young people who had anxiety and depression and who were homeless or were about to leave care. I loved working with young people and I loved Psychology as a subject so I decided to train as a teacher and pass on my enthusiasm towards psychology to them.  When I qualified, I taught A level Psychology and Health and Social Care to 16-19 year olds in further education. During that time, I enjoyed working on the pastoral side of education, using my knowledge of mental health to support students with their journey through college life and their exams. I also contributed to anti bullying and equal opportunities policies and I ran a peer mentoring scheme for children who were being bullied. Throughout this decade, I realised that actually I still had the passion for mental health work so I started studying counselling and began volunteering for ChildLine. ChildLine gave me more of an insight into the issues that children face in today’s society, such as feeling isolated, not wanting to go to school, cyber bullying, bereavement and divorce. I decided to give up teaching to pursue a new career in therapy. I started studying Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and from that point onwards I have worked with charities, CAMHS and with an educational psychology department. I have worked with children, young people and adults who have had a range of anxiety and depression based difficulties as well as trauma and OCD. I am also trained in mindfulness and compassion focused therapy and often use it in my day to day practice.
