About Me

I am an Integrative Child Psychotherapist, trained at the Institute for Therapy and Education in London, and specialise in working with the impact of complex developmental trauma and disrupted attachments. I have a particular interest in working with adopted and fostered children and their families. I have worked as a parent consultant and trainer for both Adoption UK and PAC-UK for 7 years, providing support to adoptive families in crisis and running training on therapeutic parenting for adoptive parents. I currently work as a psychotherapist in schools, specialist organisations and private practice at Mind Garden Therapy, Reading.

I offer both short and long-term psychotherapy sessions for children, adolescents and their families. For some children and young people, a systemic approach in which the whole family is involved in the therapeutic process can be especially beneficial. Whilst I specialise in working with developmental trauma and disrupted attachment, I also work with many other issues, including self-harm, bullying, self-esteem issues, losses and bereavements, separations, depression, school and relationship issues.

My approach is based on the fact that each individual child, young person and family is different and needs to worked with in a slightly different way. As a result, I have an integrative approach to treatment, drawing on a number of different methodologies to to suit the individual needs. For many children, a talking-only approach does not tend to work. In these cases it is often more helpful to have a more creative approach utilising games, play and different arts media, such as sandtrays, art and puppets.
