About me

Teenager, child and adult psychotherapist/counsellor.

Sometimes things can get in the way of life, the list could be endless and problems can seem really daunting. I work with young children, adolescents and adults in offering a unique, confidential service that will help you get back on the right track and feel more confident about dealing with your difficulties.

Children and teens: Mood swings are normal in teenagers but if your teen is coping with something more serious they may need help to manage themselves better. I work with depression, anxiety, obsessive behaviour, self-harm, suicidal thoughts and many more disorders. I specialise in working with teenagers and children in a unique and bespoke way. I use many different techniques in my practice including educating young people in neuroscience and wellbeing. This supports young people to have a clearer understanding of themselves which in turn gives them what they need to make positive changes in their lives.

Family and parenting support: Parenting teenagers can be challenging and many parents may find it a struggle to adapt to changes in their child's behaviour as they grow up. Parenting teenagers can be difficult and many parents find it hard to adapt to constant changes in their child's behaviour. I work with families to gain a clearer understanding of each other, build better relationships and communicate more effectively. I work with families and adolescents to understand their role in the family, what happens when things change and how they can be managed.
