About me

I am a Specialised Adolescent Psychotherapist working with ages 11- 20.
I practice Integrative Psychodynamic Counselling and use Talking Therapy, Play Therapy, CBT and Art Therapy to connect with young people.

I am experienced in working with adolescents from South London and provide additional support for young people with mild learning difficulties and ASD.
You, as a teenager yourself, or your child, may be caught in the midst of exam pressure, social anxiety, self-esteem problems or bullying. You could be facing a problem like divorce, loss, depression or a health issue. You may just be feeling lost and tired.

Being a teenager is hard in ways that we never forget. Sometimes, parents or guardians don't mean to come across as you feel they do; I encourage and facilitate communication between both sides so each person's voice is heard.

I provide a friendly, safe and proactive space to be honest about how you feel and what's getting to you, and how we can move forward to make things better.
I offer short- term, targeted work and mid-term work for more involved problems.

I work one-to-one with each young person, and also encourage parental input and offer additional mediation sessions between young people and parents and the start or end of treatment.

I am a relatable and experienced psychotherapist and my skills are built on forming a strong and trustworthy relationship with teenagers, doing so quickly and backing it up with a dependable, safe and confident practice.
