I am a highly experienced dramatherapist and eye movement desensitisation and reprocessing (EMDR) practitioner.
I have worked creatively with children who have special educational needs, suffered trauma and/ or behavioural difficulties. I have specialised in supporting young people with social, emotional and mental health (SEMH) needs. My experience covers the 0-25 age range and includes working as a dramatherapist, EMDR practitioner, child and adolescent therapist, psychotherapist, and also a unit leader for a summit camp. I am also working alongside the Manchester Youth Justice team by providing therapeutic intervention for young offenders. I have worked with various multi-disciplinary teams including social services, CAMHS and community paediatricians.
