I provide counselling for adolescents and younger adults who are experiencing mental health difficulties. I am passionate about supporting people in their transition from childhood into a positive and confident adulthood.
I have been working with young people and families for over 10 years. My approach is underpinned by a strong clinical background. I have worked as a lead clinician at CAMHS (child and adolescent mental health service) and currently work as a counsellor at headspace (national youth mental health service).
My approach is influenced by attachment and trauma theories, and therefore relationship is seen as key in the therapeutic process. Taking a client centred approach, I draw on training in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Mindfulness-based therapies, Narrative Therapy, Dialectic Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I am also currently training as an art therapist.
I offer short and long-term counselling to support people with issues including:
· Suicidal ideation
· Low self-esteem
· Relationship difficulties
· Difficulties regulating emotions
I provide a non-judgmental environment, where people's stories are treated with care and respect.
