Special interest areas

I have particular experience with children and adolescents but am experienced with all ages. I specialise in Sandplay therapy for all ages and other creative techniques. I also specialise in helping with parenting.

Personal Statement

I am an integrative therapist. This means I am trained in a range of therapies. These are the warmer person centred, the psycho-dynamic therapies and the more practical CBT and solution focused therapies.

 

I am also trained in several creative therapies for adults, teenagers, and children such as deep and effective Jungian Kalffian Sandplay “Picture Tapping” (a specialist form of the Emotional Freedom Technique or EFT) and several other therapy and drawing techniques.

 

I am experienced with all ages but particularly with children.  I am a Barnardo’s link counsellor, so I am qualified to work with all aspects of attachment and adoption.  I am also very experienced in anxiety, depression, and attachment.

 

I ask clients what they feel they need to work on and discuss the ways of working which they would feel most comfortable with.
