My Approach

What is Educational Psychotherapy (EPT)?

Educational Psychotherapy is a highly effective way of helping children and young people to learn. It combines teaching and creative methods with a chance for children to explore and make sense of painful or traumatic experiences that might get in the way of learning and development.

See for more information about EPT.

I have experience of using EPT to work with children and young people who experience challenges with : learning; communication; social, emotional and mental health needs and Autism. Often the children I work with struggle with their social behaviour and find it difficult to manage relationships with adults and peers. I work with children who are at risk of school exclusion and 121 therapy is tailored to the child.
I can also work therapeutically with small groups of children- I am trained in Caspari Foundation's Therapeutic Story and Art Group models.

About Me

‘This member has completed UKCP Covid-19 Online Working Guidance’ and 'Working as an EPT online' training provided by Caspari Foundation.

I currently work as a 121 therapist with primary and secondary children (ages 4- 18), their parents /carers and school staff and am used to being part of a multi-disciplinary team. I have a particular interest in working with children who have been adopted or are in local authority care. I offer assessments which support school staff and families to think about next steps for their child as well as short and long term therapy.

I am also Course Director at Caspari Foundation where I lead the UKCP accredited Advanced Diploma in Educational Psychotherapy and teach on the courses.
I am a clinical supervisor for qualified Educational Psychotherapists.

I am committed to my own professional development and have an interest in forensic psychotherapy and Diveristy, Equity and Inclusion, especially how race, culture and class impacts on our life experiences.

Before retraining as a Child Psychotherapist - Educational Psychotherapist, I was a qualified primary school teacher with many years experience as a classteacher, Special Educational Needs Coordinator and Safeguarding officer. I worked in and led more specialist settings such as Nurture Groups, Learning Support Units and Pupil Referral Units.
