I am an experienced, approachable Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist who trained at the Tavistock clinic in London. For over 15 years, I have worked therapeutically with children, adolescents and their families in a variety of settings including the NHS, schools and in my own private practice. My approach is flexible and creative, integrating Psychoanalytic knowledge of child development with therapeutic skill to make sense of a child’s troubled thoughts or feelings. I am passionate about offering high quality and age appropriate therapeutic interventions that are tailored to the individual child or adolescent.
I work with a wide range of difficulties which may impact on a young person's development, personal relationships and school life. These include but are not limited to depression, anxiety, separation and attachment, self harm, behavioural concerns and gender identity issues. I have a specialism in working with adolescents suffering from an eating disorder.
I offer both long term and short term psychotherapy as well as specialist assessments and consultations to help parents, carers or professionals in understanding their child. Length and intensity of therapy depends on each child’s needs and will be discussed after initial consultation with parents and usually 3 assessment sessions with the child.
