I'm Here to Listen
My 20 years of experience working theraputically with children and young people enables me to offer effective, individualised service of well being and care. I offer counselling and parenting support for a variety of needs and provide a service in the home, online or at my private practice in Barnet.
My therapy helps children and young people to understand some of the challenges they are facing. Together, we can improve the child's self-confidence and emotional wellbeing. Early intervention can prevent issues escalating.
These issues could include:
I also provide support in the family home with routines, and play activities to support your child's social and emotional development.
From new born to young adults
I run workshops or support in your family home.

Early Years - Under 5

I have over 20 year's experience of working with schools, children's centres and health professionals. I provide support to schools, parents, young adults and children to assist with mental wellbeing. I provide
one-to-one or small groups packages to build self-esteem and confidence, by equipping children with strategies to better cope with school and everyday life. My style of therapy supports children and young people to explore their thoughts and feelings, express themselves, and make sense of the world around them.
Children often express their experiences and knowledge of their world around them through play. It can be their communication to inform others how they feel. I provide a resource-filled room of materials for your child to discover, to tell their stories and share their feelings. Allowing children to explore and communicate with materials that are natural to their play, produces highly effective outcomes in emotional development.
Do you worry you are not a good enough parent?
My attachment based counselling offers you a space to process your own experiences of being parented and what changes you may want to make as a parent to your children.
What to expect
In many ways, your child’s online play therapy will be surprisingly similar to what they would experience during a session in my practice.
Ahead of your child’s session I would like to ask you to provide some typical items that might be used:
• Crayons, coloured pencils and/or markers
• Small assortment of toys
• Any art/story/music/poetry the child would like to share
One significant difference I find with online therapy is that I can easily tailor session length and frequency to your child’s needs.
This means that if your child would benefit from multiple sessions per week that are only 15minutes in length we can do that.
Or perhaps your child has a 25-minute session on Monday afternoon followed by a 25-minute session on Wednesday evening.
We can adapt this as we go in order for your child to make the best of their session.
Do you or your child need support and strategies to manage anxiety?
Please contact me for a complimentary consultation. This gives you the opportunity to discuss your worries and for me to explain how my Therapeutic work can help.
1 hour session in the family home with support plans and strategies delivered.
Some areas you may need help with-
Attachment based Play
Sessions support children with
Bespoke school and Early Years packages to support school teams with strategies for support children with emotional, behavioural challenges.
Please feel free to contact me about costs-it is important to tailor make sessions to your particular child and family.
The first step is for the parent/guardian to contact me and to have a chat about what is going on for the child or young person. This is a chance for us to chat about your worries and how counselling or parent support might help.
This will enable me to provide you with a bespoke treatment plan for your child. The first few sessions are 'getting to know' your child. Sessions would usually be once a week. Or you the parent may have sessions with me, so I can provide you with parenting strategies.
