I work as a Process Oriented Child Psychotherapist, mainly in South Devon but also in East Anglia. I run the Apricot Centre Wellbeing Service for Children & Families in both East Anglia and in Devon from the Huxhams Cross Farm base nr Dartington. We work closely with experienced and innovated therapists, mentors, psychologists and psychiatrists to provide a robust and responsive therapeutic wellbeing service. I also enjoy some work with adults.
Process Oriented Psychology aka Process Work has been my passion for many years. I have for a long-time been interested in working with children, young people, and the families and systems around them. I think i am probably most interested in what makes life interesting and inspiring for people, no matter what their, circumstance, direction, orientation or identity. I have worked in residential children's homes, in CAMHS services within the NHS with attachment based approaches, working directly with kids, in schools, and with parents and teachers. I managed and was a Child Psychotherapist within the Ipswich CAMHS 'Connect Service' for Looked After and Adopted Children in Suffolk (NHS) and previously to that I was a manager for 'Trouble Tree' an attachment-based Tier 2 NHS service of children and young people in Southend/Rayleigh.
