Got a question for the therapist
I am a highly experienced Child and Adolescent specialist and Family Therapist, registered with UKCP to provide systemic therapy to individuals, couples and families. My background includes mainstream social work across a broad range of client groups, as well as both therapist and management roles in a Tier 3 CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services) setting. I have also worked directly in schools and designed and delivered Peer Support Training covering active listening skills, responding, and a variety of topics relevant to young people such as bullying, exam stress, sex and relationships, and the impact of family difficulties on coping in education. I have run groups for a variety of professionals to support and develop skills and sensitivity.
I believe that a strong and empathic engagement with the person is essential in co-creating an effective therapy process. This involves achieving understandings at a number of levels, for example gender, ethnicity and key relationships, and identifying the strengths and resources in that person's repertoire and history of coping.
I listen carefully and also use challenges and humour at times to prompt a new viewing of a situation that has become stuck. This is, of course conducted within a framework of respect and concern.
