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