I am a qualified psychodynamic psychotherapist specialising in children, young people and families. At the heart of my work is the belief that every young person is an individual who has the ability to thrive.
I support young people and children who might be struggling with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, bullying, difficulties with behaviour, exam stress, self-harm, low self-esteem and many other difficult emotional experiences. Key to my practice is building trusted relationships with young people to enable lasting change to take place.
Training, qualifications & experience
My training includes clinical and pre-clinical postgraduate qualifications from leading child psychotherapy institutions the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust and the Anna Freud Centre, qualifying with distinction from both.
I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) with experience working in the NHS, schools and voluntary settings with children across a range of ages. I attend clinical supervision and ongoing professional development trainings to ensure I continue to practice to the highest standards.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.
Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.
All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.
