I have been working as a child psychotherapist and school counsellor for 15 years. I have experience in a number of different primary schools helping children with a wide variety of issues such as anxiety, behaviour problems, bullying, domestic abuse, depression, parental separation, gender and other issues.
I have given supervision to school counsellors who work in the primary sector. I run training sessions for school staff and other workers on topics such as attachment, gender identity or dysphoria, relaxation.
I have worked in special schools with autism, severe and profound learning difficulties and non-verbal children aged from 4 to 19.
Before that I was a teacher in Further Education in Hackney and Tower Hamlets helping young people and adults gain Access and other qualifications in psychology and biology for university entrance.
I have a wide experience and interest in cultural and ethnic diversity as well as other differences such as those of gender and sexual orientation.
I abide by both the UKCP and the BACP code of ethics and receive regular supervision and professional development.
