About me

I am an experienced and fully qualified integrative counsellor / psychotherapist for young people of all ages and offer support and relief from overwhelming and confusing feelings that leave them feeling vulnerable. I offer long-term and short-term therapy for all ages from my garden room in Warlingham, Surrey (near Croydon) and for older children in my therapy room in Borough near London Bridge.

What can I help with?

Young people have much to contend with in their journey towards self discovery, independence and adulthood.

They can experience parental separation and divorce, trauma, abuse, bereavement or loss, bullying and other issues at school, caring for adults, parental illness, family, relationship and friendship issues, gender curiosity, change and transition, exam stress, drink / drug abuse, sex issues, loneliness,

Their frustration can be communicated in their sadness, anger, depression, anxiety, panic, low self-esteem and confidence, self hatred, lack of resilience and assertiveness, attachment difficulties, self-harm, disordered eating, phobias, behaviour problems, addiction, OCD, suicidal thoughts...

... and much more.

I am specifically trained to work with children and young adults with all of these issues and more, including looked after children.

How I work

My approach is child-led, and with the use of verbal communication, creative materials and play children and adolescents can work through and express their feelings.  By child-led I mean that the sessions are led by the child or young adult, at their pace and are tailored to each individual and their ability and needs.  I do however draw from a number of therapeutic methods so my approach is integrative in nature and based around play, art, person-centred and CBT therapeutic techniques and psychodynamic thinking.

The space

I offer a warm, safe, calm, comfortable, confidential and non-judgemental space to talk, play and create, whatever each child or young adult feels comfortable doing.  My rooms are well thought out spaces and are equipped to compliment all age groups with lots to discover, do and discuss.  Both rooms are wheelchair accessible.

I look forward to hearing from you.​
