Jacqueline Van Roosmalen
I am a child and adolescent psychotherapist expertly trained to work with young people of all ages who experience depression, deliberate self harm, trauma, anxiety, school refusal, bereavement and relationship difficulties. I work with parents who are concerned about their children and who need a supportive relationship within which to reflect on their parenting and their relationship with their children. I offer brief and long term individual psychotherapy as well as parent/child psychotherapy. I have nearly 20 years of specialism in child and family mental health in the NHS and now work solely in independent practice.
Training, qualifications & experience
I trained as a Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist at the Society of Analytical Psychology and qualified in 2006. I have nearly 20 years of experience in the NHS, in in-patient and out-patient (CAMHS) clinics. I am a tutor of Infant Observation and theory seminars on the British Psychoanalytic Foundation MSc at BPF/Birkbeck. I am a supervisor of counsellors and psychotherapists working with young people. I have extensive experience working with undergraduate and postgraduate students at UCL and Kings College as a Specialist Mental Health Mentor. My current independent practice comprises intensive and non-intensive individual psychotherapy with young people and parents, both short and long term. I also work with parents and families with a focus on relationships.
