I have worked for 35 years with children, young people and their families and carers. I am a Play Therapist, Systemic Practitioner, EMDR Therapist and Supervisor. I use a person-centred approach drawing on my experience to adapt therapy to suit the individual. I work from my office in Belper Derbyshire and can offer an initial assessment if you are interested in accessing therapy or supervision. If we decide that we can work together we would agree a plan that can be regularly reviewed.
I work with children, young people up to the age of 18 and family groups.
I offer supervision to professionals and/or trainees.
