I am motivated by helping people feel understood and enabling them to begin to understand themselves. I believe that psychotherapy can make a difference to the quality of people's lives and their capacity to engage with the world around them - emotionally, socially, academically and professionally.

I particularly enjoy working with older adolescents and young people. I am also interested in helping parents make sense of their own childhood experiences enabling them to connect with their children more easily and thus improve their capacity to parent. As a parent it can be hard to get past one’s own hopes, prejudices and expectations of one’s children. Thinking about these struggles within the safety of a therapeutic relationship can change a parent’s perspective and as a result the parent’s relationship with and to their children.

I qualified as a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist from the Tavistock and Portman NHS Trust in 2004. I have worked in the NHS, covering the full range of developmental, emotional, behavioural and mental health difficulties in children, young people and their families. I also work in primary and secondary schools providing support for troubled students and staff.
