About me

A very warm welcome to my Child and Adolescent Counselling Practice.

I am a fully qualified Integrative Children's Therapist and registered member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. I provide one-to-one Counselling and Play Therapy for children and adolescents between the ages of 3-17 years.

I work in a child-centred way, using play, story telling, creative work and talk, to help children express their thoughts and feelings in a way that is comfortable and natural for them. My Integrative training means that I draw on a number of theories and traditions of therapeutic work; including Psychodynamic theory, Attachment theory, Play therapy and Person-Centred approaches.

I believe that every child is unique and value them as individuals with their own mind, views and way of seeing the world. As an Integrative therapist, I am able to work in a way that is responsive to each child and their own needs, rather than using a single approach for all.

I always offer the first session as trial, completely free of charge. I think it is so important that the child or young person feels comfortable with me, before deciding to book up further sessions.

My Practice is based within The Children's Wellness Centre in Chiswick, which also provides an array of other Therapeutic services and children's activities.

The Children's Wellness Centre is bright, spacious and child-friendly. I hope your child will feel at ease coming into the Centre, with the aim for it to be relaxed, informal and non clinical.

The Children's Wellness Centre recently won the 2020 "Health and Well-being Award" in West London, for the provision of Therapeutic services.

Training, qualifications & experience

I have been working with children and young people for the past 16 years, in nurseries, schools and counselling centres, as well as privately supporting families and children struggling in their home environment. I have experience working with children with additional educational needs, children on the autistic spectrum and those with physical disabilities. I was recently awarded "Best Children's Mental Health Therapist" by GHP Private Healthcare Awards.

I hold a graduate degree in Psychology, Level 3 in Counselling Skills and a Post Graduate Diploma in Counselling Children. I trained with Place2Be, the UK's leading mental health organisation for children and adolescents. I am a registered member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy; thus meaning I have met their standards of proficiency for private work and I practise within their ethical framework. I have professional indemnity insurance in place.

I am also a certified sleep consultant and provide behaviour support and sleep programmes to families.


I have worked extensively with children experiencing the following difficulties, although my work is not limited to this list:

  • Anxiety and stress
  • Parental separation and divorce
  • Friendship issues
  • Bullying
  • Family and step family relationships
  • Sibling rivalry
  • Aggression and anger management
  • Academic difficulties/exam pressure
  • School challenges
  • Night terrors and nightmares
  • Bereavement and loss
  • Self-harm
  • Abuse and trauma
  • Transition difficulties
  • Domestic violence
  • Separation Anxiety

If I am fully booked, with your consent, I can pass on your details to my colleagues in the Children's Wellness Centre who may be able to offer support for your child. They practice in the same way as myself, also offering the first session free of charge.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Accessibility

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.

Wheelchair user access

Availability

Monday - Friday, during the day and after school / evenings. I work alongside two other experienced Child Therapists, so I can always pass on their details if I am fully booked.
