Areas of specialism

I have worked therapeutically with young people (aged over 11 years) for over 5 years and currently work in a secondary school

Alongside this, I have worked with adults in a variety of therapeutic settings

Approach

My approach is client focused, as the client and their therapeutic goals are always at the centre of the work. I draw on a variety of psychological theories and practices to inform my thinking, meaning that I am able to tailor my approach for each individual client and work flexibly depending on their needs.

Experience

I have worked therapeutically with young people and adults in a variety of settings, including Talking Therapies (NHS), the Crisis Resolution Treatment Team (NHS) a young people’s counselling service and I currently work with young people and adults in a secondary school.
