Child & Adolescent Psychotherapy


Common Mental Health Problems affecting Children and Young People:

Abuse, Anxiety and Anger – Behaviour problems – Issues of bereavement and bullying – Symptoms of depression – Confused feelings re separation and divorce and witnessing Domestic Violence – Young People experiencing eating problems, sleep problems, issues with self esteem, self harm and suicidal feelings – Problems in family relationships, peer relationships, and school relationships.

According to The Charity Young Minds, 850,000 children and young people in the UK have a mental health problem, and these are the ones that have been diagnosed!

I have over 20 years experience working in a therapeutic capacity with children and young people and I have specialised in the field of Child and Adolescent Mental Health. I believe in intervening developmentally and quickly with children and young people, in order to prevent longer term problems and promote resilience, helping and promoting psychological wellbeing and growth. I use a range of therapeutic interventions to fit the child and young person’s developmental stage and needs eg Play therapy, Sandtray therapy, therapeutic story telling, use of Art as Therapy, Behavioural Therapy and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy.
