About me

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 integrate Mindfulness and Energy Psychotherapy techniques into my work and my training as a craniosacral therapist informs my practice. I have more than 20 years of specialism in child and family mental health in the NHS and I 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.

Other areas of counselling I deal with

I am trained as a craniosacral therapist and this informs my thinking about the body mind matrix. I am particularly interested in emotion stored in the body and expressed in physical symptoms.
