Profile

I specialise in working with children and families struggling to cope with emotional and behavioural difficulties, and problems with relationships and attachment. Through family therapy, parenting sessions and/or play therapy I support families and youngsters in constructing an alternative, more adaptive pattern of engagement. 

I am a clinical social worker, with extensive experience having worked at Red Cross War Memorial Children’s Hospital as a family therapist. My therapeutic stance is eclectic, wherein I employ systemic family therapy techniques, coupled with mindfulness, positive psychology, narrative therapy, and coaching.  My special interests lie in maternal mental health, infant and child attachment, behaviour and emotional difficulties, group work, and organisational, systemic work.

My child clients may have difficulties such as:

-ADHD

-oppositional or defiant behaviour

-difficulties with sleep, feeding or crying in infancy and young children 

-excessive worry

-depression, grief and loss

-aggression  
-trauma
-eating disorders 
-obsessive compulsive thoughts and behaviours

-autistic spectrum disorders 

-school refusal
-chronic illness of self or family member

I also see adults who may be experiencing difficulties within their intimate relationships (couples therapy), or the transition to parenthood (postnatal depression, bonding and attachment difficulties, returning to work, breastfeeding).

I further offer social skills groups for youngsters who experience difficulties with peer relationships, psychotherapeutic process groups for adolescents, and parenting support groups for new parents, and skills training groups for parents of toddlers and older.

I am available to run teacher and/or parent workshops on a variety of child mental health related topics.
