About me

Psychotherapy, Mental Health & Well-Being Services.

I am a specialist Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist with 17 years experience in the field of psychotherapy, mental health and well being.  I work with children, teenagers, young adults, parents and families.  As an NHS trained psychotherapist I have experience of working with the full range of Mental Health and Developmental difficulties and the more general emotional, behavioural and social difficulties experienced by children and young people and it's impact on families.

When things go wrong or are difficult this can begin to express itself in various ways;

* low mood, depression, low self-esteem,
*  anxiety,
*  irritability
* difficulties in eating and sleeping
*  difficulty in concentrating and participating in work, school, relationships and life.
*  problems with/ breakdown in relationships. 
* Behaviour that is difficult to understand
*  Feelings that are difficult to put into words

At these difficult points in life issues from the past are re-triggered ( sometimes without our even being aware of this) making it even more difficult to move forward and re-establish emotional stability and confidence.

Psychotherapy can help to locate and address these issues by providing a space outside of  ordinary life and it's expectations and obligations where issues can begin to present, be thought about and worked through.

Work with children, adolescents, young adults and families:

Work with children usually involves the use of play equipment to help the children communicate their states of mind and anxieties, work with adolescents and young adults follows a more traditional talking therapies approach although some simple art materials may be provided to facilitate this.

I offer short- term and open-ended therapy.

Parent Support Work

The purpose of parent work is to support them and to gain an understanding of the the family dynamics that help and/or hinder the young person's presenting issue or overall development.

Training, qualifications & experience

ACP Registered Child & Adolescent Psychotherapists train for a minimum of 6 years in the NHS.   I undertook my training at the NHS Tavistock Centre, London and the Birmingham Children's Hospital.  My practice is regulated through my professional association  the ACP which also regulates my continuing practice and professional development after qualification.

I have 17 years' experience in the field of psychotherapy and  mental health and have worked in a number of work settings; Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS), hospitals, forensics, therapeutic communities and schools.
