How I work

1. Initial consultation
I will explain more about how I work and you and/or your child can talk about your concerns and ask questions. We can both decide whether to go forward and arrange further appointments.

2. Therapeutic assessment
In these initial 2-3 meetings I want to get to know your child really well, so I can form a therapy plan to meet particular needs. I will explore the current concerns in more depth and ask about your child's development, family history and family life.

3. Therapy plan
We may agree a therapy plan for short term (3-12 sessions) or long term (a year or more) therapy, this depends on the individual assessed needs. I work with children and adolescents individually, with their families or carers, or with parents separately from their children. Eg I may be able to help parents with worries about their children in a few sessions, and with more complex needs the work might include long term individual child therapy alongside regular meeting with parents/carers and wider family/supporters.

4. Reviews
We will review progress together regularly and amend the therapy plan accordingly.

5. Location
My therapy practice is based in Forest Hill and East Dulwich, I can also work in schools in this locality.

If you are unhappy about any aspect of my work as a psychotherapist please let me know so we can work through any difficulties. Any complaints should be made to Sherla Richardson at the Institute for Arts and Therapy in Education or 02077042534.
