My Expertise


Professional Doctorate in Child and Adolescent Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy

Member of the Association of Child Psychotherapists

Specialist Areas

I specialise in working psychoanalytically with children and young people who have experienced developmental trauma.

I also have extensive experience of working within a specialist community eating disorder service, core CAMHS setting and supporting children who have chronic health conditions and life limiting illness.

I am also actively involved in clinical research and neuroscience.

Therapeutic Model

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is a child-centred approach for children and young people who may be experiencing a wide range of problems where there are underlying emotional issues, anxiety or depression or diagnoses of either neurodevelopmental differences or mental health problems.

Individual child psychotherapy aims to bring about change and psychological awareness as well as a resolution of emotional problems for the child or young person. The purpose is to facilitate change through self-understanding and in this way not only address the presenting problem but also to build a solid foundation with which to meet challenges throughout life.

In My Own Words

The Children and Young People Psychological Therapies Service within Hampden House offers a range of support and therapies that are centred around each child or young person. The clinicians within the team are highly experienced and professional and combine this with a compassionate and thoughtful approach to their work.

In addition to my clinical work, I am also the Director of Training for the Association of Child Psychotherapists.
