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. Additional to analytic 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 was 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.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
