I am a qualified Child, Adolescent and Family Psychotherapist, working in South West London.
I offer confidential weekly psychotherapy for children, young people, parents and families, in a non-judgemental and supportive space, where clients can feel safe in expressing their feelings and experiences. Clients are encouraged to be their authentic selves and to explore both internal and external conflicts at a pace which suits them.
I have an integrative approach and so I am able to offer therapy based on the individual needs of clients. I may use a systemic approach, which focuses on problems which are a part of or have a negative effect on the family system. This can be useful in helping clients to explore conflicts and breakdowns in communication. A psychodynamic approach, which aims to support clients in understanding the impact of past and present events, can help in exploring how these events may guide their own actions, feelings, choices and ways of relating to others. Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) focuses on how your thoughts and beliefs may affect your feelings and behaviours and supports clients in learning different ways of coping with for example, anxiety or depression.
With extensive therapeutic experience of working in various fields, including offending, mental health, Special Educational Needs, children and young people in care and substance misuse, I am passionate about the importance of a safe and therapeutic space for children and young people in particular and understands the need for individualised therapy sessions for all.

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy
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.
