I am a Child & Adult Psychotherapist, Clinical Supervisor, Trainer and Somatic Experience Practitioner. I have extensive experience in working with loss and bereavement and worked with Family Futures & Adoptionplus ( organizations providing family therapy to children who are fostered or adopted and their families) for over 12 years.
I am trained in Theraplay, Dan Hughes’ Dyadic Therapy, Somatic Experience and Story Stems and have extensive experience as a consultant and supervisor to Pre- and Post-Adoption Teams. My particular interests are in building the bonds of attachment within families, neurobiology and trauma and from these 3 areas providing a model or approach to care for children who have experienced difficult early lives. I am also increasingly interested in how developing ‘mindfulness’ and reflective capacity as a parent or carer can provide greater experience of closeness and satisfaction as a parent.
I am experienced in helping clients who have experienced difficulties with :
- Panic Attacks
- Depression, and
My practice is in East Sheen, SW14 (a short walk from Mortlake Station).
