My Approach

Integrative Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist
Clinical Supervisor DIP

About Me

I have been working as a child and adolescent psychotherapist since 2009 in schools, charities and privately. I have experience in running groups, managing trainees and working one -to- one therapeutically. My work is very diverse, as are my clients, and I am passionate about working to help children, young people and families to feel better about themselves and themselves in relation to others and the outside world. This is done in the context of an empathic therapeutic relationship in a safe, caring and confidential space. Part of the work can be using image, metaphor, play, the arts and the body. This helps to gain self-awareness and healing with children and young people with various issues.



I believe that each child and young person has a unique way of seeing things and try to work from their

perspective. As an integrative psychotherapist, I can work using different approaches to meet the

needs of the young person in the therapy. This means that I can contain and apply ways of working

through issues, which will enable the child to integrate and help to live life to their fullest potential.

The arts can be a useful tool and way of doing this, as they can help to externalise issues and then look

at them in a subjective way.



I have experience working with children and young people with various issues affecting their well-being such as trauma, abuse, depression, anxiety, phobias, panic attacks, anger issues, obsessive compulsive behaviour, low self-esteem, loss and bereavement, self-harm, problems in intimacy, Autism, Asperger’s and ADHD. I also have wide experience working with children and young people who present challenging behaviour.



I have experience in supporting staff in schools, and run groups, to help enable staff to process

difficulties they face in relation to child protection issues and in looking at different approaches to

ways of working in the classroom.
