"Wendy was great with my 10-year old daughter, who was having night-time anxieties and was unable to sleep on her own. She had a developed a lot of (obsessive) rituals at bedtime to cope, but these were also worrying us. In just a few CBT sessions, Wendy helped her understand her worries, and taught her how to tackle them. The sessions were a lot of fun, and my daughter is now able to sleep peacefully in her room, most of the time!"

Specialist in working with Children, Teenagers, Parents and Families
As children and teenagers go through different stages of development, family life can be emotionally challenging. Whilst most of these stages are manageable, and part of life, sometimes it becomes too much and can cause a great deal of distress for them and their family.
I have worked with hundreds of families and have specialist training to determine when extra support is needed and what that might look like. If a change is required, I will work with you and provide you with specialist support to help you all move forward.
I also provide consultations and training to organisations and groups around parenting and mental health. I have consulted to NCT groups, parent groups, cultural/media institutions and schools. I also supervise other Clinical and Counselling Psychologists.
