Individual Therapy

I am a compassionate, and empathic person always nurturing the strengths

and   resilience   of   my   clients   and   tailoring   my   interventions   to   my   client’s

individual needs and goals. Whether, you would like to improve   your well-

being through guided self-discovery to build a more positive outlook of life or

need support through a difficult life stage, I can provide you with valuable

tools to cope with the challenges sometimes life throws at us.

 

Family therapy

I can offer a safe, supportive and reflective space in which families can begin

to explore solutions to the difficulties and make positive changes at their own

pace.

 

Some of the issues I regularly work with are listed below:

  • Parenting issues with all age groups
  • Couple and marital difficulties
  • Issues relating to divorce or separation
  • Impact of disability or mental health difficulties in a family member

 

Child and Adolescent Therapy

In my NHS and independent practice, I have vast experience working with

children   and   young   people   (with   and   without   learning   difficulties)   who

experience   social,   emotional   and   behavioural   difficulties.   I   have   specialist

knowledge and expertise in developmental conditions i.e. Autistic Spectrum

condition and its assessment, diagnosis and management.

 

An area of interest is working with children and young people with chronic

physical   health   conditions   to   enhance   medical   treatment   compliance,

psychological adjustment and coping.
