How I work

I am a psychodynamic practitioner which means that I relate to how the young person is feeling now but also in relation to past experiences, events and people/family relationships.

I work creatively and with play. I have a ‘toolkit’ of skills and work flexibly to meet young people where they are.

I also work collaboratively with parents.

Issues that arise in my work are varied and include:

Anxiety, stress, loss/bereavement, family breakdown, self-esteem, friendship issues, depression, transition, social anxiety and peer pressure, though this list is not exhaustive.

I have a particular interest in culture and identity and working with young people with additional learning needs.

I am seeing young people showing high levels of anxiety around their missed education and covid related stresses. Please be in touch if you would like help with these issues.
