Special interest areas
I specialise in working with children and adolescents.
My training was psychodynamic, which means looking at the often unconscious processes that can make life difficult as they make themselves felt. I look at the way relationships with the self and with others can develop, often following patterns set in childhood - sometimes in difficult, unhelpful or dysfunctional ways.
I work collaboratively, either long or shorter term, depending on the client’s requirements. I will adapt the focus and goals depending on the contract that is agreed. Clients can expect warmth, empathy and kindness, and a great deal of interest in all aspects of their lives. I hope to offer a safe space to talk about what needs to be discussed, but also enough challenge to create necessary changes as we progress.
