Psychologist specialising in therapy for Children and Adolescents in Surrey

... and providing EMDR for Children and Adolescents

Welcome and thank you for choosing to visit my website.

I provide psychological and therapeutic services within Woking, Guildford and the surrounding areas of Surrey.

I understand that thinking about accessing therapy for your child or adolescent can be a challenging and stressful process. I am passionate about offering a safe and non-judgemental space in which difficulties and experiences can be explored sensitively with an experienced and trained therapist/psychologist. I am flexible in my approach and I work holistically and creatively. At our initial meeting, we will discuss the difficulties that you are seeking help with for your child or adolescent and we will discuss what the goals are with respect to therapy. Collaboratively, we will then decide upon the approach that will be most suitable to adopt. My ultimate aim is to improve the mental health and sense of wellbeing of your child/adolescent.

In therapy the difficulties that I currently work with include:

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
Mood difficulties (e.g. depression)
Anxiety disorders (e.g. Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD); social anxiety)
Self-harming behaviours
Low self-esteem
Emotional and behavioural self-regulation difficulties (e.g. aggression; conduct problems; anxiety; social withdrawal)
Attachment issues
Harmful sexual behaviour
Working with children and adolescents who are considered ‘at risk of’ or who are involved in the criminal justice system

I specialise in providing psychological services and therapy to children, adolescents and their families, using a variety of therapeutic approaches. In particular for those who are experiencing the effects of early trauma and attachment difficulties and are displaying associated behavioural difficulties. I have worked with Looked After Children since 2004 and more recently with adopted children, using attachment focused therapy. I am also trained in the use of EMDR, which provides an additional treatment option for addressing a variety of psychological difficulties.

In addition, I am a Relax Kids and ChargeUp Coach as well as a Youth Mental Health First Aider.

If you live within Woking, Guildford or the surrounding areas and are currently looking for a Psychologist/therapist to support your child/adolescent, then please contact me on 07719 320966 or using the e-mail link on the website.

Home. ChargeUp Classes coming soon

Charge Up

Is your teenager:
- Feeling anxious about returning to school?
- Likely to find the transition back to school challenging?
- Likely to struggle with getting back into the daily routine of
attending school?

Many teenagers have been out of school since the end of March and will not be returning until at least September. As a result of this long period of not attending school and the circumstances surrounding this, some young people may be feeling anxious about the return to school. Some may also struggle with getting back into the routine.

I will be running a 4-week programme of ChargeUp classes during August which will aim to provide teenagers with practical strategies to assist them with managing their feelings regarding the return to school and maintaining positive mental health and sense of well being.

These sessions will take place online starting on Saturday 8th August for four consecutive Saturdays and will cost £5 per session.

If you are interested in finding out more about the classes then please contact me using the details provided.
