The Teen groups are easy & confidential.
In 1997 at RCH I set up groups for socially isolated teens with ASD, anxiety, shyness, bullying, sensory deficits, cognitive & receptive language deficits & so on. Teens say that they enjoy the "judgement free space", the belonging and growth of confidence in the groups. Parents say that they are keen and organised to come to the groups, it is the highlight of their week. They relax. I delved into the needs of socially isolated teens through my Psychodrama thesis called "Friends Are The Best Medicine". I also run Tuning Into Kids/Teens groups for parents & Family Therapy. Telehealth is available for kids/teens/parent/families!

I work with adolescents and adults who are experiencing challenges with how they relate to themselves, others and their environment. I value my clients as unique individuals and aim to foster a sense of hope, determination and resilience in people to make positive changes in their lives in whatever capacity is meaningful to them. I work a lot with people to help them identify, manage and regulate difficult emotions. This also involves a deeper understanding of emotional reactions and an opportunity to benefit from learning from past experiences.

My approach to treatment takes its direction from experience, both in the lived sense and specifically in terms of psychoanalysis (having undergone an analysis and formation as an analyst). My practice pays particularly close attention to the person him or herself, the dynamic cultivated in the session, and am far less interested in peripheral issues such as diagnosis.

Managing stress and changing behaviour is a complex matter. It can be even tougher when you try to do it alone. My clients are looking for the tools to manage their situation effectively and bring about positive behaviour change and improved performance. The people I work with want the power that comes from combining the best elements of coaching, positive psychology with the best therapeutic practices, including both traditional and state of the art methods. They want both coaching support and clinical expertise to help them cope, build their resilience and ultimately thrive across a range of complex situations and experiences.

Currently open for new referrals. I work from an understanding that many of life's concerns stem from our past experiences in relationships and the structural difficulties that are present in our society. This organizes the way I understand peoples experience and distress and how I seek to understand how we are in relationship, and what fixed patterns get in the way of living a more meaningful and enriching life. I work with warmth and curiosity to help develop a deeper understanding of your area of concern and better make sense of why particular patterns might be causing distress.

Teen Counsellors
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence.
