I am a Psychodynamic Organisational Therapist, Full Member of  the Association for Pysychodynamic Practice and Counselling In Organisational Settings (APPCIOS)  and am accredited through the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC). I have extensive experience working directly with traumatised children who have complex difficulties in both group and individual settings. I currently work for a CAMHS team. My interests are in attachment, and psychodynamic work with children and supporting adults who work with complex children. I have trained at the Tavistock institute, the Anna Freud Centre and am currently studying through the Northern School of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapy. I am trained in various attachment assessment tools.


I really enjoyed the course. I will recommend it to others. The material was fantastic and both Emma and Anne-Marie were knowledgeable and thoughtful.


The trainers were both knowledgeable and able to explain abstract concepts and theories in easy to understand language.


The course will help me when dealing with difficult, resistant and aggressive parents; reminds me that they are feeling anxious rather than simply aggressive.
