I have been working therapeutically with children, young people and adults, for over twenty years. I hold an MA in child, adolescent and family therapy as well as a postgraduate diploma in drama therapy and sand tray therapy. My orientation is integrative which is a combined approach to psychotherapy; this ways of working offers an opportunity to combine different therapeutic tools and approaches to fit the client’s needs at the time.
I am registered with the Health Care and Professions Council (AS05955).
I find that my training as a child and adolescent psychotherapist and a drama therapist allows me to integrate creative techniques such as sand tray therapy into the work. This allows the client to delve deeper into their unconscious and uncover elements of them selves that had been unapparent. My training has also been helpful in that I am able to offer a solid understanding of early childhood and how this may have impacted an adult’s life. Furthermore I feel able to offer valuable support to parents who are finding parenting challenging.
