It can involve working one-to-one with a young person or parent , a child and parent together, or an entire family.
Working therapeutically with children and young people is different from therapy with adults, it requires specialist skills and knowledge. My post-graduate training included 5 years at the Tavistock and Portman Clinic (NHS), a world centre for Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy and I work as a Senior Psychotherapist in CAMHS (NHS) and privately. I work with 2 to 25 year olds, and have significant clinical experience in evidence based psychotherapy for depression, self harm, suicidal thoughts, anxiety, abuse, tics, phobias, eating disorders, ADHD, PTSD, trauma, school difficulties, family problems, and body, trans and gender issues.

As a CBT therapist and midwife I really understand the barriers you might feel asking for help during the perinatal period (pregnancy, birth or postnatally). Many people struggle to talk about their anxiety, depression or doubts and worries about being a parent . You might feel judged or that you have failed in some way and there can be a real sense of pressure to feel positive throughout, making it sometimes feel really hard to admit you are struggling, so I understand just how significant asking for help is. Reaching out is positive and is the first step towards recovery - of your sense of self, your self worth and your wellbeing.

Do you feel worried about your child's anxiety, low self-esteem or angry moods? Unsure how to help, leaving you feeling exhausted and helpless? I am a fully qualified, dedicated therapist, experienced and passionate about working creatively with children from the age of four. I use elements of play and art therapy, drawing from my experience as a primary school counsellor. I aim to provide a safe, therapeutic environment in which your child can be themselves and speak freely. Beginning to recognize and work through difficult emotions, often for the first time, results in increased emotional balance and confidence.

I feel very passionately about the positive effect that therapy can have upon peoples lives. Over the years I’ve worked with a range of challenges that people can experience. Working through pain or difficulties together is a process I find very rewarding. Often people will arrive being unsure what to expect and feeling apprehensive about what is to come. My approach is to create a welcoming, warm and confidential space where together we can gain an understanding of your situation. I am trained to draw from several therapeutic models so we can find a way forward that suits your preferences and goals for change.

I have experience in dealing with young people as well as being grounded in working with older adults and their issues. Young adult suffering from low mood or anxiety, adolescents struggling with school based issues, eating disorders, social anxieties and traumas of family life are suited to my practice. It can be difficult reaching out for help but if you can connect correctly with another individual it can help build confidence and rebuild your life. Many people struggle with unresolved pain or illness. I offer techniques to cope with these issues. Often psychological barriers prevent our healing successfully.

At times, we can find it difficult to connect with those closest to us or even with ourselves. Traumatic events, change, loss and ongoing stress can lead us to feel overwhelmed, stuck, anxious, irritated, confused or low and lacking in motivation. If this resonates with you, I provide a confidential space in which you can express, explore and reflect on your experience without blame or judgement. I work with calm compassion and gentle curiosity. By supporting you to enhance self awareness and develop self acceptance, you can move towards more satisfying, life-affirming, choices and connections.

If you decide to work with me it will be rather like setting out on a journey together. On that journey I’ll be your fellow traveller, companion and guide. Whether or not your reason for coming to see me is an external situation that’s impacting your life, a key part of our time together will be to explore your inner world. As we explore that world together you may develop greater insight into patterns of thought and behaviour that served you once but now limit you; you may find alternative ways of approaching difficulties; you may discover a way of being in the world that is more in tune with who you truly are.

Are there parts of you that feel unrepresented, hidden, anxious, ashamed, angry, or judged by others? We aren't born feeling this way, have you ever wondered how you got to where you are now? My clients come to me because they trust I can weather the hard places we visit together. We need to be able to talk about the harder things in life and I would like to offer you the space for this; a space of acceptance, warmth, and goodwill. Let's connect the dots of where you are now, how you got here, and work towards where you'd like to be. Please know that all parts of you are welcome with me. There is hope and there can be healing.

18 years experience as a Psychotherapist. Online Counselling provided for those isolated at home. It’s very normal to need help when life is challenging or distressing. Such upsets might be because of loss, anxiety, depression or maybe due to childhood neglect, abuse or trauma. Some people simply want to learn more about themselves. Whatever the reason, counselling is a way to help you discover more of who you are, your resilience, find strength and determine a successful strategy that works for you.

Parenting Counsellors

What does therapy for parenting look like?

Therapists may work with parents individually, together, or include the whole family to find solutions for the problems a parent faces. Many parent-based therapies work on a parent’s relationship with their children, problem-solving within the family, and analysis of family dynamics. Therapy conducted remotely by video may be helpful in allowing a therapist to observe how families interact in their own homes.

When should a parent seek therapy?

When behavioural problems begin to disrupt the healthy functioning of a family, it may be a good time to look into therapy. If parents find that children are acting out in school, have started using drugs or alcohol, have developed eating disorders, or other similar red flags, a therapist may be able to help.

How long does therapy take for parenting problems?

Depending on the severity of a family’s challenges and the type of treatment utilised, therapy for parenting can last from weeks to months. Cognitive behavioural therapy is a pragmatic therapy type that can be brief, most often ranging from between 5 and 20 sessions. Structural family therapy, which inspects family dynamics, often takes several months. Parent-child interaction therapy is typically shorter-term, lasting between 10 and 20 sessions. For any therapy, the duration will depend on the progress made and results realised.

Can therapy help parents dealing with burnout or stress?

Parenting is difficult. Parents may dismiss or conceal feelings of exhaustion, overwhelm, or escape ideation—imagining withdrawing from their parental obligations altogether. but left unattended, these feelings can have negative effects on the whole family. A therapist can help parents work on the skills they might need to better cope with the burdens of parenting and help them be the best parents they can be.
