I am a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, trained at the Tavistock Clinic in NW3. The core of my approach is psychoanalytic. My aim is to look beneath the surface of behaviours and relationships to try and understand the root causes, thereby freeing up a child, adolescent or family to start experiencing life differently.
If you would like to know more about psychoanalytic psychotherapy with children and adolescent then please visit the website of The Association of Child Psychotherapists: www.childpsychotherapy.org.uk
The issues that I work with include depression, stress, anxiety, distress arising from divorced/separated parents, low-esteem and self-harming behaviours. I work with young people up to the age of 25.
I can offer appointments in the day and in the evenings from my practice in SW7, 2 mins walk from Gloucester Road tube. If I am not able to answer your call, I will respond promptly to your message.
