I am a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist. I work with children, adolescents, parents, families, groups and adults. I currently work in private practice and also within the Childrens Emotional Wellbeing and Mental Health Service (previously CAMHS) in South Essex providing assessments and therapeutic support. My approach is integrative and client focussed. I provide a confidential, safe space to explore whatever it is that you may be finding difficult. I support and work with a wide range of difficulties. For more information on what to expect from sessions and how the process works please visit holdingmind.com. I would be more than happy to have an initial telephone conversation to answer any questions you may have.
