Covid level 2 : I am now providing a mix of online and in person consultations and therapy for children, teenagers and adults.
Qualifications & work experience
After nursing for 10 years, I trained as a Child & Adolescent Psychotherapist and completed my training in 2000. I then worked in a mental health service and Non-Government-Organisations before moving into Private Practice in 2009. Issues I can help with include social and emotional challenges including anxiety, confidence issues, grief, and parenting dilemmas. My work includes a combination of talk-based therapy and non-verbal approaches such as drawing and play-based therapies. Further information and articles are available on my website (see above).
My focus is helping families and individuals find a way through difficult times. This may be a very short term intervention of 1 to 4 appointments or, when appropriate and mutually agreed to, it can be longer term work. I welcome contact to discuss your needs.
I work with children and adolescents and their families, as well as individual adults. Issues I can help with include depression, anxiety, grief, the impact of trauma or abuse, confidence issues, relationship difficulties, and anger management. I can also help with parenting dilemmas, and parent-child relationship challenges (all ages).
I work individually with children, adolescents, and adults, and/or with parents or family groups on an as needed and agreed upon basis.
I am also available for supervision related to all aspects of child and adolescent practice.
I work Monday to Thursday and charge $140 for a 50 minute appointment. Advanced warning of cancellation is appreciated. No charge is made for appointments cancelled 24 hours in advance.
I have a number of after school and early evening appointments as well as daytime appointments.
You are welcome to contact me to discuss your needs and ask any questions you may have. My phone number is 021 206 3478 and my email is email@example.com.
