I am a child, adolescent and family psychodynamic psychotherapist, qualified to work with clients from infancy up to 25 years old. I offer a safe confidential space in which children, adolescents and young adults who are struggling with their mental health and well-being can explore and process difficult feelings and gain understanding of themselves and the world around them. They might use play, creative arts or talking to do this, with me alongside them, listening carefully and helping them towards integrating difficult experiences or feelings in order to feel more in tune with themselves and those around them.
My NHS accredited training has also equipped me with knowledge of systemic, mindfulness and CBT approaches, which are particularly helpful when working with parents or carers. This work gives the adults who care for the child or young person an opportunity to explore the role they can have in their child’s journey to well-being and good mental health.
