About me

Hello, my name is Faye. I am an Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, and fully accredited member of The United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

I have over 10 years experience of working in schools and in the community, with a range of issues including: trauma, bereavement and loss, depression, anxiety, anger, aggression, behavioural issues.

I have also worked with parents who were seeking support to increase their understanding and management of their child’s behaviour, or to explore how their own life experiences might be impacting their parenting.

My integrative training has equipped me with a broad knowledge of different approaches and ways of working, and this enables me to adapt to the needs of each individual child.

Before children can express and experience things that are difficult and painful, they need to feel safe and build trust. To facilitate this, I offer a consistent space and an inviting environment with opportunities for play and creativity.

I have a variety of therapeutic resources available, including sand tray, art, and games, which can be helpful to communicate thoughts and feelings when a child or young person feels unable to do so with words.

My aim is to understand a child’s perspective by following their lead. This helps to reduce any pressure or anxiety they may be experiencing so they can begin to relax and feel safe enough to engage freely in sessions, in order to address and reduce the impact of their difficulties, and develop their inner resources.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a Counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the Counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
