Additional Needs Families:
PARENTING SUPPORT PROGRAMME
I am a Clinical Transactional Analyst Psychotherapist with experience in various clinical and charity settings, providing individual and group therapy.
My work is grounded in a philosophy of inclusiveness and embraces all cultures and identities. I have a deep regard for ordinary human suffering and welcome all experiences you may bring to the therapy room. My particular interests lie in abuse, trauma, belonging, culture and identity.
I have significant experience working with people affected by Autism & other neurodiverse conditions and run a therapy group for parents/carers of children with additional needs.

For parents/carers of children with disabilities and additional needs, this programme focuses on developing resilience within families and positive mental health for parents/carers and their children.
Themes include managing emotions; supporting behaviour; personal power; implementing boundaries; working with anger; nurturing ourselves; and accessing services and support.
The course provides an opportunity for parents/carers to build friendship and support networks as we share

what we do well.
