I am a deeply committed, compassionate child and adolescent psychotherapist. My training in play therapy infuses all of my work so that I am as comfortable working non-verbally, with play and art, as verbally.
Although in the main I see children alone, I always consider a child as part of a family, and aim to work with the whole family, to think together how the child can best be helped. If it is helpful to meet with parents together with their children, or with parents alone, I am able to offer this as a service.
My background in social work has equipped me to offer parenting and behaviour management advice which I can draw on as appropriate.
I have particular experience in working with:
• Attachment disorders
• Low self esteem
• Domestic violence
• Self harm
• Fostering and adoption
Certificate of Qualification in Social Work
