In light of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) I will be operating a remote therapy service in addition to the usual service, so that children and young people can still have access to therapy during this difficult time.  This is particularly important due to raised levels of anxiety and uncertainty.  If you are an adult who is concerned about your child  I am offering telephone sessions as a means of support. To discuss this further, please get in touch either by email: or by telephone: 07867 433 558.

Clinical Psychologist, Masuma Rahim has written an insightful article for the Guardian regarding the failings of the current government in providing enough funding for mental health services for young people. This is despite Theresa May previously calling for mental health to be a priority. Whilst the government set out to provide teachers with more knowledge on child mental health, services to support children in crisis have been cut back to such a point most endure a lengthy wait just to be seen for an initial assessment.
