About Me

My Background...

As an undergraduate, I attended the London School of Economics and Political Science, going on to work in teaching and senior leadership roles in schools and colleges. I then went on to spend 6 years in post-graduate training at the Tavistock and Portman Foundation, a world-renowned NHS centre for child and adolescent psychotherapy.

My qualifications include:

  •  Masters Degree in Psychological Therapies for Children, Young People and Families (University of Essex / Tavistock NHS Foundation). 

  • Postgraduate Diploma in Emotional Factors in Learning and Teaching: Counselling Aspects in Education (University of East London/ Tavistock NHS Foundation).

  • Postgraduate Certificate in Mental health and well-being: multi-disciplinary practice with young people and adults (University of Essex / Tavistock NHS Foundation).

  • Postgraduate Diploma in Working with children, young people & families: a psychoanalytic observational approach (University of Essex / Tavistock NHS Foundation).

My professional license:

I am a member of the Tavistock Society for Psychotherapists and chartered as a Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist, by the British Psychoanalytic Council.

 

My Experience:

Currently, the majority of my time is spent as a child psychotherapist working in the "Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service" (CAMHS) as part of the NHS. This involves psychotherapy with children and teenagers with a range of issues. These include depression, suicidal ideation, self-harm, eating disorders, anxiety, abuse, trauma, OCD, ADHD, unexplained physical symptoms, gender dysmorphia, and family and school based difficulties. I also have extensive experience working in primary and secondary schools and for a number of years led a psychotherapy service in a local college.
