Hello and welcome!
I am an Integrative Child Psychotherapist, specialising in EYFS and Primary age work. My approach includes the use of play and creative materials to support the expression and processing of emotions, mental health difficulties and life experiences.
I offer private practice sessions for children, parents and adults as well as a range of nursery & school-based services.
I specialise in attachment-based work, developmental trauma and child development and have worked therapeutically since 2012.
After a brief teaching career, I soon realised my interests and passions in this role lay outside of the classroom and I focused my work around pastoral care and therapeutic support across all ages, including staff and parents.
Being drawn naturally to a creatively focused training and offering my experience in this throughout my work, I feel privileged to explore, side-by-side, the worlds and experiences of those who come to see me, whatever their age or background. For me, therapy is about the soul and heart and I truly love what I do.
With experience and awareness that ‘one size does not fit all’, I founded NEST Creative Therapies to ensure that each child, adult, nursery or school community had their individual needs met through a collaboratively developed bespoke service; so, whether you are seeking support for yourself, your child or your nursery or school, at NEST Creative Therapies we pride ourselves on our focus on early intervention, our flexible approach and in offering creative-based and talking therapies for children, adolescents and adults that are tailored to each person’s needs.
With our trauma-informed approach and relationships at the heart of our work, we value difference and diversity and celebrate the uniqueness of every child or adult we work with, so regardless of your age, culture, background and needs, you will be welcomed and accepted for who you are.
Wherever we are based – either in your school or in our private practice room – we work hard to facilitate a safe, non-judgemental and accepting space where child or adult are allowed to just ‘be’ and can feel free to explore the space safely and without expectation.
After offering therapeutic services across London and Surrey since 2012, our breadth of experience and expertise allows us to work with a wide variety of presenting issues and experiences across the age range, calling on various therapeutic approaches to assist us in our privileged and sensitive role.
