“I am a part-time Child and Adolescent Psychotherapist at Mosaic Foster care and provide weekly therapy sessions to children and young people. I have been working with children for almost 30 years in varied roles within Education, Care and the NHS.
The weekly psychotherapy sessions aim to support children and young people’s emotional expression. This might include any difficulties and trauma experienced to help to make meaning of these experiences and any current and past problematic behaviours. Over time, this may have a positive impact and promote self-awareness, emotional regulation and healthier behaviours; promoting positive relationships and future well-being. I work in an integrative, attachment informed and psycho-dynamic way.
I also meet with the carers of the children I see to offer them a listening ear and therapeutic support. Guidance can be helpful at times to understand and work with the meaning behind some of their child’s behaviours.”
