I specialise in therapeutic work with children. I have worked in primary schools for over 10 years supporting children’s behaviour, mental health and wellbeing.

I now work both in schools and privately to deliver individual sessions to children and young people.

I continuously update my professional development to ensure my skills and knowledge are up to date. Recently these have included courses such as behaviour and de-escalation, working therapeutically with autism, safeguarding, self harm and so on.

How we work together:
In session I use a variety of therapeutic techniques. These include person centred therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), but primarily I work in creative ways. I will use art therapy, mindfulness, lego therapy, therapeutic play and other creative interventions to support children with a wide range of difficulties.

My sessions are age appropriate and individually tailored in order to meet the needs of the children I work with. Sessions are held in a safe and calm environment in order to explore, identify and improve thoughts, feelings and behaviours. We work together to explore possible coping strategies and improve overall mental wellbeing.

N.B. I have had both of my Covid vaccinations and my booster.
