About me

In light of covid-19, therapy sessions can be held via Skype, FaceTime, Zoom, WhatsApp or telephone.  Face to face appointments are also now available.

In 2018 I gained my Masters degree in Integrative Child Psychotherapy from the Institute for Arts in Therapy and Education (IATE), fulfilling two passions of mine 1) understanding the connection between mind and body 2) working alongside children with behavioural and emotional difficulties.

Have you ever wondered why children do things in a particular way or wondered what their behaviour is trying to communicate? Child psychotherapy is a process which helps children and adolescents make sense of how they are feeling and how they behave. It offers support for issues which can include difficulties in relationships with family and friends, concerns they are having at school, aggression, depression, anxiety, low self esteem and confidence.

Sessions include working with art materials such as paint, clay, sand tray, puppets, and drawings. By using art materials, it allows the expression of difficult feelings to be expressed more freely as children’s first mode of communication is through behaviour and play. Overtime these difficult feelings that children experience can be put into words rather than being expressed in actions/behaviour.

In my spare time I like to cook/bake, spend time outside, walking my dog Gemma and keeping fit both physically and mentally by doing yoga, meditation and running.

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.
