Philippa Boulter Consultant Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist Adult Therapist
I am a well-qualified Psychotherapist. I have 28 years’ experience of working therapeutically with children, young people and families, 19 of these in the National Health Service's Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS).I have worked with adult clients for many years from a psychoanalytic perspective. I have recently entered the Adult Psychoanalytic Training. As part of this training I offer reduced fee places.
I have a small private practice which I operate from a comfortable therapeutic space in the Claines / Barbourne area of Worcester. There is plenty of parking.
I work with a wide range of social and emotional difficulties which include low mood, anxiety, trauma, self-harm, stress, bereavement, relationship problems and low confidence. I also work with difficulties with behaviour including sleep problems, self harming, aggressive and difficult behaviour and eating difficulties.
I offer short term psychotherapy as well as longer more intensive treatment. I work from a psychoanalytic perspective. I will think with you about what might be the most helpful approach when I meet with you.
I have significant experience of working with children, young people and adults who have had a history of early neglect and abuse.
I am able to work with children who are on the autistic spectrum, have ADHD and who have specific or global learning disabilities.
I trained at the Birmingham Trust of Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy. It is a 6 year intensive training and on completion enables membership of the Association of Child Psychotherapists (ACP).
I am presently undertaking the adult psychoanalytic psychotherapy training at Severnside Institute of Psychotherapy.
I am happy and experienced in providing supervision and consultation to professionals.
