My Approach

I am an experienced Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist specialising in work with complex trauma; including recovery from childhood sexual abuse, traumatic grief, attachment and trauma work. I work collaboratively with children, young people and their families and integrate creative and play-based approaches into therapy, often working with parents and children together, as well as offering individual adult/child and family work. In addition to my core clinical training, I am trained in a number of specific trauma and attachment focused therapies, including EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) - a powerful therapy for processing intrusive trauma memories; DDP (Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy) - an attachment based therapy for parents and children/young people; Theraplay - a playful attachment based therapy; and NVR (Non-Violent Resistance Therapeutic Parenting).

About Me

I am warm and approachable and have worked in pioneering third sector services with vulnerable children and young people for over nineteen years. During this time, I have come to specialise in work with children and young people who have experienced significant sexual abuse and developmental trauma. Since 2018, I have been the Clinical Lead for a specialist attachment and trauma therapy service for children and young people in Bradford, in addition to offering some self employed work. I am based in Leeds and offer some private work from the Insight Therapy Centre near Potternewton Park.
