Therapeutic Support for Children & Families

The intervention journey begins with a detailed family assessment, through which target areas will be identified for therapeutic intervention. I provide an integrated therapeutic approach, tailored to each unique child and their family.

My aim is to provide families with choice, partnership and consistency. Intervention is without delay to prevent escalation and reduce negative impact on family functioning.

This pathway avoids constraints of lengthy waiting lists and disruption of changing therapist at any point.

I can also assist in navigating NHS pathways for diagnostic or specialist input, communication with schools, social opportunities and community networks, ensuring we can bring together the best care for you and your family.
