As a therapist, I have worked for many years with children and adolescents who have been sexually abused, suffered from complex trauma or experienced other trauma, and/or who displayed harmful sexual behaviours. Over the last few years my client group increased to include those who experience deliberate self-harm, suicidal thoughts, depression and psychosis, among other difficulties. My goal is to give everyone a chance to live a happy and fulfilling life. As a qualified social worker I have worked in child protection with unaccompanied minors and asylum seekers.
