My Approach

As an Integrative Child Psychotherapist, I work with individual children and young people for a variety of reasons, including to increase confidence, to support behavioural concerns, to help with friendship difficulties or any other elements that may be impacting their ability to make the most of the opportunities to grow, to learn and to form relationships with others. I use the arts to facilitate communication and I have a variety of art materials, toys and puppets for this purpose.

My intention is to support each child to feel and make sense of their feelings, over time establishing a language to understand difficulties they might be experiencing and to support understanding of such difficulties within their family. The cooperation and support of the child’s parent(s) or carer(s) is important to achieve this.

About Me

My experience includes working with children diagnosed with ASD, ADD and ADHD as well as learning disabilities. I have worked extensively with children and their families who have been impacted by abuse and/or neglect and I adopt a trauma-focused approach within my work.

My practice is based in East Finchley, 5 minutes from the tube station. I currently offer weekly therapy sessions on Saturdays during term time to children and young people between the ages of 4-17. I can offer online sessions or face to face work ensuring necessary safety precautions are met where applicable in respect of covid-19.
