I am a creative arts therapist, integrative child and adolescent psychotherapist and clinical supervisor who has been working therapeutically since 1998.
I have extensive experience working with children and young people in primary, secondary schools, residential settings and specialist units.
I have specialised in working with attachment difficulties including looked after and adopted children and their families and carers, and with mothers and their babies.
I have also worked with adults with learning difficulties and mental health issues in social care, for the NHS and in colleges of further education.
I offer a containing environment where the client can share and reflect on their difficulties and feelings in an environment which is accepting and non-judgemental.
Aims and goals for therapy are established together and reviewed over time. A safe space for clients to explore their feelings and experiences both verbally and non-verbally through play, symbol and metaphor.
I can also provide supervision to creative arts therapists and those working with children, young people and their families.
I offer training in subjects including child development, attachment, adolescence and managing self-harm.

Registered / Accredited
Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.
Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC)
The HCPC are an independent, UK-wide health regulator. They set standards of professional training, performance and conduct for 16 professions.
They keep a register of health professionals who meet their standards, and they take action if registered health professionals fall below those standards. They were created by a piece of legislation called the Health Professions Order 2001.
Registration means that a health professional meets national standards for their professional training, performance and conduct.
British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP)
BACP is one of the UK’s leading professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy with around 60,000 members. The Association has several different categories of membership, including Student Member, Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP, Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Accred) and Senior Registered Accredited Member MBACP (Snr Acccred).
Registered and accredited members are listed on the BACP Register, which shows that they have demonstrated BACP’s recommended standards for training, proficiency and ethical practice. The BACP Register was the first register of psychological therapists to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA).
Accredited and senior accredited membership are voluntary categories for members who choose to undertake a rigorous application and assessment process to demonstrate additional standards around practice, training and supervision.
Individual members will have completed an appropriate counselling or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but they won’t appear on the BACP Register until they've demonstrated that they meet the standards for registration. Student members are still in the process of completing their training.
All members are bound by the BACP Ethical Framework and a Professional Conduct Procedure.
