I am an integrative counsellor and psychotherapist specialised in working with children and young people

(MA Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy for Children, Adolescents and Families from the University of Roehampton). I have over two decades experience working creatively (as an applied theatre practitioner) and therapeutically (as a counsellor and psychotherapist) in education, mental health and community settings. I have particular experience working with children, young people and adults impacted by acute, chronic and complex trauma, including refugees and asylum seekers and children in care.


I am passionate about understanding what makes therapy and good experience for children and young people, and what leads to good outcomes. I am currently engaging in research related to this topic, looking at the (often obstructive) role of silence in therapy with adolescents, and aiming to enhance therapists' understanding and skills in this area.

​I am a registered member of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy (registration number 397091) and abide to their code of ethics. I attend regular supervision to ensure I best meet the needs of my clients and am committed to continuing professional development.


As an integrative therapist I tailor sessions for each individual, drawing on a range of approaches. I am informed by attachment, humanistic, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural and systemic theories, as well as an understanding of neurobiological processes, and child and adolescent development.


Not being limited by one theoretical viewpoint allows me to work with clients in a non-judgemental, collaborative and creative way.

I believe building an open and trusting relationship is key to successful therapy at any age, but especially with children and young people, and there is much research to support this view.
